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!

Ski/Snowboard Winter Park Mountain Resort - IKON Pass Resort

With the IKON Pass offering so many different mountains, we are trying as many out as we can! :) Let's add Winter Park to the list. I heard many good things about the mountain and I have a good feeling it won't disappoint! We are staying at the Lion's Gate Lodge - nestled 10 minutes from the resort and a short walk/drive to downtown Winter Park. So far, we are only able to secure a 3 bedroom unit. That means we only have 6 spots. If we are able to secure more lodging, we will open it up to more people! :) We have the Lodge from Friday 2/1 until Friday 2/7. You can stay any portion of that week. Dee is running this trip and is planning on arriving 2/1 and flying back to LA on the evening of Sunday 2/3. The cost is the same no matter which dates you stay. If you have extra time and can stay a bit later, definitely try to visit Copper Mtn and/or Eldora Mtn, which are also part of IKON Pass. (There are also a bunch of Epic Pass mountains about 1.5 hours away.) The cost is $375 per person. The funds we put together is for lodging, some breakfast items, snacks and other goodies around the house. Please budget for flight to Denver, shuttle to the lodge, lunch and dinner, and miscellaneous stuff (T-shirt, anyone?). The free shuttles in town are really easy to use (10 minutes to get to the mountain) and we are actually staying in town, near restaurants and all! :) The reservation is based on FIRST PAID and has a limited number of people (we try to have gender balanced trips). 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. Payment Instructions: 1. Log into www.paypal.com (http://www.paypal.com/) 2. Click on "Send Money" 3. Input the email address " [masked] 4. Input the dollar amount of $375 5.

He is flying home on 2/3 at 6:55PM. You can either take a shuttle to lodging or catch a ride from him. Please let us know if you would like to catch a ride. Dee has to stop by the store to grocery shop in Denver so will get to Winter Park probably around 8:30pm. This is a trip for members of this group.

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!

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.
