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 in Aspen - IKON Pass in good use!

Needs a location

**11/13 update - trip is full. Message Deee for wait list*** I loved, loved, loved Aspen Snowmass the last I was there. I had an AMAZING time. It snowed the 2 days I was there, no white out, and .... by the time I come down the same run.... there was so much new snow that it looked like a brand new pow-run! Wow. It was so amazing we wished we didn't have to go home!!! Well, let's go back (for some, first time). There are 4 resorts at Aspen - Aspen, AJax, Buttermilk and Snowmass. I stayed at the Westin last time so was ski-in and ski-out of Snowmass and with the snow so good, I didn't hit up the other mountains. Where are we staying at is actually closest to Snowmass. But, no worries... we are a (free) bus ride away to the other mountains! From the place we are staying at, we are a short few bus stops away from the mountain! :) Included in costs is lodging, Thursday and Friday dinners, and I will pick up breakfast items for us - pastries, coffee, eggs, and such. I will also grab some munchies and other goodies for the house. We will go out on Saturday night for dinner!~ :) The cost is $465 per person. Please also budget for flight to Aspen, cab ride to our place, lunches on the mountain, Saturday dinner, lift ticket/IKON pass, and miscellaneous stuff (Aspen T-shirt, anyone?). 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: (Deleted 11/13) Refund Policy: You may cancel 60 or more days prior to start date and receive a full refund. Cancellation 14-59 days prior to trip start date, you will receive 50% refund. 0-13 days, no refund will be given. Transportation: I plan to fly to Aspen and I am renting a car once I get there (I will post my flight info once I book it). If you are fine with cab, that's a great way to get to the house! :) This is a trip for members of this group. All attendees must be a member of Mix Professionals and RSVP here. If you know someone that wants to go, he or she must join the group. By participating in this group you agree to waive all claims against the Organizers and meetup.

Utah Ski/Snowboard Trip!

Marriott Summit Watch

**Full - Message Deeee for waitlist*** This year with the new IKON Pass, there is a ton of excitement for many to visit new resorts. We are just excited as you. I have though, been to most of the resorts in Salt Lake City and can say, they are totally worth your time. Utah seriously has the best snow in the world (feels like baby powder!). This trip, you can join us from Sunday 3/31 to Sunday 4/7 or a fraction thereof. We are planning to visit 6 of the Ikon Pass Resorts (4 for snowboarders since Deer Valley and Alta are only for skiers). For those with Epic Pass, you can just walk to the slope from our hotel to Park City and Canyons. Some fun facts, Park City is the LARGEST Resort in the U.S.A (http://www.snow.com/)! What makes this trip so wonderful besides our time on the slopes? We are staying in the beautiful Marriott Summit Watch (https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/slcvi-marriotts-summit-watch/) and we are within walking distance to all the great restaurants in the area! I booked three 2 bedroom units. In addition, there are 3 Jacuzzis at the hotel, a nice gym, CLOSE to main street (right outside), and amenities such as free-wifi, washer and dryer, whirlpool tub in master bedroom (so there are 3), and a fully equipped kitchen (x 3). I plan to arrive on Sunday 3/31 (I plan to snowboard at Snowbasin for two days prior to Park City (http://www.snow.com/)). We will stay until Sunday, 4/7. I plan to visit Snowbird/Alta, Solitude/Brighton, Deer Valley and possibly Snowbasin again! The cost is $425 per person for the week or $375 if you can only join us from Wed/Thurs to Sunday. The $$$ is for lodging and some of the breakfast items along with snacks around the house. Please budget for the flight to Salt Lake City, transportation to Park City (very easy with a shuttle or Uber) along with dinners and lift tickets, etc. If you have the Ikon Pass, you are covered as far as lift tickets! :) 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.
