What we're about

  • Quick Note: This MeetUp group is part of a larger NextDoor group with 500 members. So if 5 people are attending, it could be 35!
  • Here's the deal: you are retired, or near retirement. You are single. You don't know many other single people. You've tried online dating, and it was weird. You know what would make your life better? How about some new FRIENDS! No wait: how about some new BEST FRIENDS?
  • Come to our get togethers! The first time will be hardest of course, but you'll meet some people (who are like you!) and the NEXT time, you'll know them a little. By the TENTH happy hour, you'll have new friends. I promise! This group has actually created a bunch of new, BEST FRIENDS, all based on our happy hours! But you have to come, and come back! It's a WONDER!
  • I offer a money back guarantee! Even though being a part of this group is FREE!
  • This group is about meeting people to HANG OUT WITH, and does NOT focus on DATING! Go to Match or Tinder is you want to date. We want to meet folks and make friends. And drink responsibly.
  • This Meet Up Group is an add-on to a NextDoor 50+ Singles Group of Newport Beach. We normally get between 20-30 people from NextDoor, and are hoping to see about 45 people, the maximum that the venue can have.
  • The Single 50+ Group of the Greater Newport Beach area was created to help Single folks expand their social network: to meet new people, to make new friends
  • Age range is from the 50's and up with no limit.
  • This is not about DATING, this is about FRIENDSHIP and meeting new people.
  • Meet people to walk with, to hang out with!
  • Come expand your social network!
  • Plus it's FREE! HOWEVER, BECAUSE WE ARE A CHALLENGE TO THE RESTAURANT AND THE WORKERS, PLEASE TIP YOUR SERVER GENEROUSLY REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU GET! WE WANT TO BE WELCOME TO THESE VENUES!
  • As leader of the group, I've met dozens of wonderful people, and folks tell me that these Happy Hours have changed their lives for the better!

Karaoke Night at THE PORT RESTAURANT Corona del Mar

Needs a location

For the more spirited members of our group: Karaoke nights are really fun. You don't have to sing, but the singers give you something to talk about at your table: you can reminisce about old songs and so on. This is a great way to meet people in our group, and those attending are typically youthful and spirited! I mean look at the accompanying picture! In addition, parking is easy, no cover charge (though you should tip the DJ) and the Port Restaurant is unique as well. Come join us!

PHILOSOPHY DISCUSSION GROUP FOR SENIORS

Needs a location

OKAY OKAY. This isn't a single's thing per se. This is a discussion group for seniors. Here's the scoop. When you are a senior, lots of weird and strange things happen and it's a great time to think about WHAT IT ALL MEANS.

In this discussion group, we will discuss a variety of philosophy topics, and try to understand how they affect our lives.

This will be low key: lots of talking, not much lecturing, and the concepts will be made easy. It will be FUN! I promise or your money back! Except it's free anyway!

There WILL be single seniors there, but also non-singles. We'll talk about cool things like Plato's allegory of the cave, the Myth of Sisyphus, and ALL SORTS of topics. Ovens will be available so we can BAKE OUR OWN PHILOSOPHY! I mean, conceptually.

HAPPY HOUR AT MUTT'S

Needs a location

We've been to Mutt's several times. All times we had more than 25 people and EVERYONE LOVED IT! Remember, this includes a NextDoor group with 500 members, so the number of folks going is always larger than posted.'

Mutt's HAPPY HOUR ENDS AT 5 pm, so arrive BEFORE THEN if you want cheaper prices.
Come make new friends and socialize!

We'll be sitting near the OUTDOOR BAR, where we can post our orders.
