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!

Ensenada Cruise.... or just a Relaxing Weekend

Carnival Inspiration

Hey Folks. Let's do another fun Ensenada cruise together. Last year, we had a great time at Ensenada touring the town while doing some Tequlia tasting. On the cruise, we took fun formal dining photos, watched Broadway shows, and ate a ton of food. It was a fun and relaxing weekend for sure! What's cool about cruising? We get to eat all we want (almost). There is food 24-7 (goat cheese pizza at 5AM is my favorite). Then there is the fun ppl to hang out with and cool water slide to ride down. There is also the formal night with formal photos. We can wear our Sunday best and pretend it is high school prom! (ha) So, one of the minor cons about cruising? They make money off you drinking. Everyone is allowed to bring a bottle of wine and 12 aluminum cans of soda or juice. Other than that? They want you to buy drinks on board. There is the all-you-can-drink plan for $55 a day (really 15 drinks but it's worth it!). I normally just buy a bottle of vodka ($80-$105) and some mixers for my room and that's what Derald and I drink. Now, here is a little breakdown of the cruise: Friday: September 20th. Get on the cruise between 12pm to 4pm. The earlier the better. We can eat lunch and hang out by the pool! Of course, settle into our room too. Then, there is the night club at night, piano bar, sports bar, casino, Broadway show, midnight dirty comedy, and lots of fun stuff. We can hot tub in the evening or hand out at the swimming pool. Saturday: September 21st. Fun Day at Sea. You can book a massage, hit up the gym, sun bath, sleep in, casino, eat lots of food, relax by the pool, read a book.... and all kind of stuff. This evening is also FORMAL NIGHT. Get dressed up and let's take them cool formal photos together!!! :) Then, the evening of fun can repeat itself! :) Sunday: September 22nd. Port of Call: Ensenada. Normally, when it's just Deanna, Derald and I, we eat at our favor restaurant in town - Mariscos de Bahia. (Nowadays, we are adding in the visiting the local zoo). But, with all you party people, maybe we can sign up for a tour to their wine country. Upon our return to Ensenada, hit up papas-n-beer before walking SOBER back to the boat... The night will repeat itself. We will go check out photos tonight to see if we want to buy any!!! :) Monday: September 23rd. Debarkation. The process will start around 7AM. With your own carry on, you can walk off around 7am. If you "checked-out" your bag the night before, you will depart as they call your floor. If you stay on ship a little longer, you can enjoy breakfast, etc. BY 8-9am, they want everyone out of the room. Alright, I am not sure if the cruise sounds fun with my description. Cruising is one of my favorite ways to vacation. Join me if you can!!! To reserve your spot, please call Kate or Anna Budevska (that's not me) at Internet Tours, Inc. Please call her at (310)[masked]. Last year, we had quite some folks seeing this trip the week of the trip but the cruise was full by then. Please call now and secure you spot! Let me know if you have any questions!!! I will also provide more info to those going. Note #1: Need help with roommates? Let me know! Note #2: Only one electrical outlet per room. Bring either power strip per room or a split device charger. Note #3: Bring bathing suits and formal attire! :)

Make New Friends - Private Meetup Mixer & then DANCE PARTY!

Are you looking to meet some new friends and then check out a cool nightclub and maybe even dance? This is the event to be! Join us for a night of fun meeting new friends. Everyone is from Meetup and ready to mingle. Most people come by themselves so you will not be alone! I know it can be super nerve wrecking to come by yourself but, as long you are friendly and easy going, you will make some friends by the end of the event. We have a private Meetup-only Mixer at the club before it opens to the public. That way everyone from Meetup can meet each other. And when the club opens to the public, you and your new friends can enjoy the rest of the night. The Meetup-only Mixer starts at 8. Following the mixer, we get to stay in the club and dance the night away. The nightclub opens to the public at 10PM (after our private event). You are welcome to stay with your new friends! Did you know Exchange LA is the original Los Angeles Stock Exchange many decades ago?! :) You also get to experience some of the most awesome EDM DJs in the world at Exchange LA (check out www.ExchangeLA.com).

Our event will be held in a private room of Exchange LA with just the Meetup folks. When you arrive we will be at the door to greet you! Since you joined the meetup event you don't have to pay the club cover nor wait in line (which can get looooong! ExchangeLA has some of the best lights and sound systems in the world. Walk around. Enjoy the vibe. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to dance the night away either in our room downstairs or in the main club floor with your new friends! Either way, it's amazing! Join me and other fun peeps at Exchange LA for a great evening. The cost is $10 cash at the door. Please arrive by 9:30PM.
