What we're about

If you are looking for fun social events, new adventures or are new in town and are looking to form new relationships through socials with the great people on Meetup, you have found the right group!!!! We are a group of active professionals seeking adventures beyond the daily grind, building new friendships through social networking, and/or looking to meet that special someone along the way. First and foremost though, our focus is building a circle of friends and making connections!

If you are new to LA or have been here your whole life and your social circle diminished over time, this is the place to expand your social circle again. We have fun activities and social events that make making friends as easy as 1-2-3! :)

Of course, if you are single and are looking to find that special someone, what better way is there than through fun activities where you can learn about each other without the pressure of the uncomfortable first date? Our events are low pressure and low stress. It's like hanging out with old friends.

Now, what else should you know about this group? If you are adventurous and love the outdoors, you are in luck. We absolutely love hiking and camping in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. No worries though if you are more into the cultural events and museums that Los Angeles has to offer. We enjoy broadening our minds with arts and culture. LA is one of the most dynamic cities with more cultural diversity than most. We will explore LA and all its glory!

What if you enjoy the occasional socializing over a drink at a bar or relaxing by a bonfire at the beach? We have those too. For those that enjoy a good party here and there. So do we. We like theme parties such as masquerade party, mustache and wig party, and nerd and geek party. We also have fun celebrations like Halloween and New Year Eve Bash. Oh, let's not forget, we love wine and cheese and delicious and unique beers. We have events to cover all grounds including Game Night (Cards Against Humanity, Jenga, Uno or Exploding Kittens anyone??)

Ultimately, our main focus is connections! We are a group of fun professionals that continue to expand our minds through relationships, events and life experiences! JOIN US!

Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks - Memorial Day Weekend [MP]

Zion National Park


**The Zion trip is full. But we have room on our July 4th Sequoia trip: http://bit.ly/SequoiaMeetup & we have room on our Palm Springs trip: http://bit.ly/PalmSprings2019 ** Zion is by far my favorite National Park and I been to many of them! We last visited Zion in 2012, 2015, and 2018 (https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/221387351/ and https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/56294662/ and https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/events/241773750/) We are staying at a beautiful home that can sleep many of us comfortably! :) What is so awesome about staying at a house? We will have all the amenities of a home (bathroom with shower and flushing toilet, bed to sleep on, towels etc) and but still sit by the campfire all night!!! We can enjoy the fire-pit, hot-tub, and an amazing view (ton of stars in the sky!!!!). This would be one of those trips you can write home about. I am excited just thinking about being in Zion National Park and the house makes it that much more awesome!!! You don't have to worry about packing for dinner. With the money we put together, I will buy food and with some of your help, we can have delicious dinners together! :) I would definitely bring 🍺 and more to share! It's always a good time!!!! :) For breakfast, I will pick up oatmeal and pastries for us. I will also bring coffee and tea. :) For Lunch, I normally just buy a sandwich at the store, throw it in my bag and head out on my hikes. Bring your hydration system and let's do some amazing hikes! For those that want to head over to Bryce Canyon National Park for a day, it is completely worth it too! :) It's just a little over an hour away and you'll get to see the hoodoos! Don't know what a hoodoo is? Then you must get over to Bryce. :) We have the house from Friday May 24 until Monday May 27 (Memorial Day). Like last time I plan to depart LA on Thursday night and stay in Las Vegas for the evening. Zion is 6-7 hours from Downtown LA, so if you want to leave Friday that is fine too! To help cover the cost of the trip, the cost is $275 per person. There is only enough room for 34 people (17 guys and 17 ladies). Please also do take into consideration the $30 per car national park entrance fee (good for 7 days). This can be split between the people you carpool with. Lastly, of course, there is the cost of splitting gas with the driver. If you are ready to see some of the most magnificent national parks, join me for a trip to Zion National Park (Bryce Canyon National Park and Kanab if time allows). Getting there: I will help coordinate carpool for the confirmed attendees. Please come in good physical health and condition. all physical activities come with the inherent risk of injuries and you might get hurt. You are responsible for yourself. You will not hold myself or the meetup group liable for injuries or anything else, such as injury due to carpooling, etc. By signing up, you agree to this Waiver (https://www.meetup.com/mixprofessionals/pages/12713372/Camping_Waiver_of_Liability/).

The reservation is based on FIRST PAID and has a limited number of people (gender balanced). Whoever pays first will be on the "go" list. If you RSVP yes but don't submit payment your spot is not confirmed and I may move you to the "not attending" list without any further explanation because only a payment (not just an RSVP) locks in your spot.

Expect to hear more about 1 week prior to the trip. 3. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go solo? Not at all!

Save $100 on an IKON Pass (Mammoth, Bear, Squaw + many more) & start riding!

Looking to save money on next season's season pass? And did I mention that you can use it immediately this season at Mammoth - they are going to be open until at least July 4?! The IKON Pass covers your favorite local mountains - Mammoth, June, Bear. In Tahoe there is Squaw/Alpine. In SLC there is Snowbird/Alta. In Colorado the 4 @ Aspen. Also included Big Sky, Steamboat, Copper Mountain, Deer Valley, Jackson Hole, Eldora, 4 in Canada and a bunch on the east coast. The IKON Pass comes in two levels - the "IKON Pass" and the "IKON Base Pass". Both give unlimited access to Bear, Mammoth, June, Squaw and more. However with the Base Pass there are blackout dates at some of the resorts (Christmas time, Presidents Day weekend and MLK weekend). A lot of people wonder if getting a pass is worth it. Let's do the math- an individual lift ticket can cost up to $180 or more at Mammoth. Multiply that by 4 days - and guess what, the base pass is cheaper and gives you unlimited riding! Don't have anyone to go with? Yes you do and they are in this group. We are on the mountain every weekend! And we plan trips to use the pass! As a group we went to Mammoth, Squaw/Alpine, Winter Park, Jackson Hole, Aspen, and Utah! Right now the IKON pass is $1049 for the full pass and $749 for the base pass. But you can get a $100 discount with a code you enter at checkout, which will bring the price down to $949 for the full pass and $649 for the base! To get this price you need to purchase by Midnight on August 1. After that the price goes up! To get the code you will need to message me (Deee) and provide (1) your full name (2) DOB (3) whether you are a new passholder or a renewing and (4) whether you are going with the full pass or base pass. Once you give me that info I'll give you a code you can use on IKON's website to get a discount. Message me via Meetup.

The cost is $10 cash at the event.
