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!

TRIVIA NIGHT: Eats, Drinks and THINKS!

Timothy O'Toole's Pub Lake Villa

Come share your useless knowledge with others who know even less. :-) (Truly...we need you!) We typically have our own 2-4 teams, beyond the bar's 12-15+ regular teams.

Let's Meet, Greet (5:15-5:30pm) and be ready to COMPETE before 6pm when the game starts. Order FOOD, DRINKS (separate checks) to support this family-owned venue, and this free entertainment they provide for us!

DANCING + Martinis + DJ Kathy = Spring Schwing Dance Party!

Strawberry Moon


We got the feeeeevahh...do we need more cowbell? :-) Nah...we need to dance! Shake off your winter hibernation, and instead shake your boo-tay with Single Friends!

Strawberry Moon Martini Bar is welcoming us back with our own DJ KATHY spinning tunes, plus drink/food specials I'll post soon. Wear your splashiest Spring colors, mingle with old and new friends, and if you're a newbie, you'll be embraced into the fold pronto! Please be true to your RSVP word, as we have a limited head count allowed for this night planned just for us! See ya then!

PARKING: Free street parking on main and side streets, plus free lots tucked around...one is almost directly northwest of Strawberry Moon's entrance.

Gourmet 4-Course WINE DINNER (+ Champagne Reception) at 20% Off!

Moretti's Barrington


I checked out this wine dinner opportunity late last year when I invited a private group of 12 friends, and was completely impressed, so now am offering it for the first time to all Single Friends! It WILL book up quickly, believe me, so do not delay!

As a long-time member of Moretti's Wine Club, I earn a 20% discount...AND am allowed to share it with my guests for this one special night only! After a lovely champagne reception where we'll hobnob with others included, this gourmet dining experience features West Coast (California, Oregon, Washington) wine pairings with each course.

Greeting: Mumm Brut Prestige, Napa Valley, CA

First Course: Jumbo Lump Crabcake with citrus butter and roasted corn vinaigrette; Neyers Chardonnay, Carneros District, Napa Valley, CA

Second Course: West Coast Salad (mesclun greens with toasted Washington apples, caramelized pecans, avocado, scallions, and goat cheese, tossed with passion fruit vinaigrette); Erath "Resplendent" Pinot Noir, OR

Third Course: Balsamic Black Pepper Cherry-Glazed Salmon** (pan-seared salmon with root vegetables, mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, with a balsamic/black cherry reduction); Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, CA
**Beef substitution offered with advance request.

Dessert: Rainier Cherry Cobbler, served warm with French vanilla ice cream; H3 Wines Merlot, Columbia Valley, WA

Regularly $101 with tax and gratuity (already a steal of a deal!), for my group it will be just $80 total out the door (already INCLUDING tax, tip and our $3 Event Fee). Prepayment is essential as soon as you RSVP, as this WILL sell out quickly. Use Paypal (send to [masked]; be sure to choose "Sending to a friend" for zero fees) OR Zelle (to[masked])...OR call me for snail-mail check info.

Last time this spectacular evening also included wine experts sharing their knowledge, music, and several free raffles for wine (which 4 won at my table alone!). If you want IN, do it now, and do it right by paying immediately. Just RSVPing does NOT get you a place at these limited tables. Free street parking and in the lot across the street.

As Ernest Hemingway said, "Wine and friends...are a great blend!" Cheers!
