What we're about

Guess what? SINGLE no longer means SOLITARY! Get off your computer and get into Real Life, with single FRIENDS eager to know you. You, as a welcomed and active member of this fun group, will now join activities, make friends, meet up, hang out, pick brains, get hugs, walk dogs, bring pets, enjoy cocktails, chow down, showcase talents, slow dance, accept compliments, pitch tents, suggest adventures, burn calories, share dreams, offer advice, travel everywhere, eat pizza, smile broadly, discuss books, laugh aloud, clean the highway, support our soldiers, hold benefits for pet and homeless shelters, shake hands, create ideas, clean up (OK, we may need your help SOMETIMES here!), and maybe even find love!

You'll also find we LOVE to travel! In groups of all sizes, on separate trips we've visited Puerto Rico, cruised the Caribbean 12 times (another coming every January!), beached it at gorgeous all-inclusive resorts all over Punta Cana and Mexico, and explore new and exciting countries in Europe for 10 nights every September (this year, Budapest, Prague & Krakow)! All our package deals are incredibly affordable, so forget about being an armchair traveler...pack your bag and let's GO!

By the way, our age group is almost entirely people in their 40s and 50s, and the age range we're including will be 38-65 years old. For those who do join, you'll need to have a real first name (no cutesy handles) and a profile here, and we suggest a photo too, as that's the best way to actually make new Single Friends!

Memorial Day Cookout: Burgers, Brats, Sand Volleyball, Baggoes, Music & More!

[NOTE: I AM LOOKING FOR A MINIMUM OF 40 PEOPLE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.] Our Meat Raffle buddy, Scott Coyne, who owns The Four Coynes Bar & Grill, wants to host us ONCE AGAIN for another fantastic Memorial Day shindig at his place! They've got a great professional SAND volleyball court in back, plus baggoes, picnic tables with sun covers...and a huge grill too! He'll be cooking up hamburgers, cheeseburgers and brats just for us (all inclusive in our Event Fee, as well as buns, condiments, utensils, plates, napkins, tablecloths, picnic area set-up and clean-up, grilling staff), plus his rich homemade potato salad. He'll also set up another big table, so we can bring in our OWN sides and salads! PLEASE BRING A SIDE DISH, APPETIZER OR DESSERT! NO CHIPS AND SALSA! You are also welcome to bring anything else you'd like him to grill, should you have dietary restrictions. We'll have our own Sirius radio music on Scott's great outdoor sound system, so we pick what we want! We party rain or shine (but it never rains on us) as the bar is plenty cool too. Drinks at Four Coynes are always on the cheap, and we love how they treat us like family. Prepayment is necessary, using PayPal (choose the "Send Money to a Friend" option for zero fees if attached to your bank account; send to [masked]. If attached to your credit card, add $1.00 PayPal fee). OR mail a check to Patty Hook, 4465 W. Cherry Tree Court, Wadsworth, IL 60083. [It's $15 in advance and $20 at the door, as Four Coynes obviously needs a firm head count to go out and buy and prep the meat, buns, condiments, salads, beer, staff, etc.] Your $15 Event Fee (if paid in advance) includes a great cookout meal (with our sides, apps and desserts), games and tunes...plus the opportunity to make lots of new Single Friends, flex your muscles at outdoor sports, soak up sunshine...and have other people clean up! It doesn't get much better than that...right? Let's celebrate Memorial Day the perfect way! We've a blast here 6 other Memorial Day weekends, and this will be the best yet!
