• Talk to a stranger over tea + curated small groups!

    Online event

    Hi guys, Some news!! We are launching our first Socialhaus cohort. 2020 has been a weird year. It's never been more difficult to establish meaningful connections, but now is probably when we need it the most. Too often, we meet once and don't speak again. Thus, I thought of curating small groups of people with similar interests/goals to meet repeatedly, allowing stronger connections to form. At the same time, there will be a larger cohort of strangers for network and support :) This event will be a combination of our usual "Talk to strangers over tea" event and a welcome event for those who are interested in joining the cohort, and would like to learn more about it/meet existing members! For more info -- http://bit.ly/socialhauscohort Apply via filling out a profile first! -- https://cocoliu.typeform.com/to/DeFxvskt The event will run via Zoom (https://zoom.us/). Follow me on twitter!! https://twitter.com/cocobliu -- Here, we bring people together to learn from each other’s unique experiences. It's a place where you will meet open-minded individuals from different walks of life, a place intentionally designed to go beyond the superficial small talk of networking, a place for friends. Studies have shown that people are engaged in conversations for the first seven minutes; then, the conversation slows down, only to pick up again a few minutes later. We often give up at the seven-minute mark--or earlier--hoping to escape the situation. Here, we bring together individuals who strive to go past the seven-minute mark; it is a place for those that seek to connect and actually get to know those around us.

  • Talk to a stranger over tea, make a friend (Digital Edition)

    Hi guys! After running a lot of "meet strangers over tea" events last year, I'm planning to bring them online with some exciting changes! https://cocoliu.typeform.com/to/h5y9qq1K New format -- create classes that combine learning something (i.e. cooking, drawing) with tea and conversations :) As we are all looking to gain a new skill, pick up new hobbies, and establish better habits, let's take classes together and collaborate with others with similar interests. Meet diverse strangers and reconnect with old friends while learning something fun! Hosting a virtual tea this Friday for those interested, RSVP here https://cocoliu.typeform.com/to/h5y9qq1K (And if you can't make it this Friday but interested in the classes, please fill out the form and I'll keep you updated!) We will be using Zoom (and I'll also put you into breakout rooms of 3-5 to get to know each other better). -- Here, we bring people together to learn from each other’s unique experiences.

  • Hear inspiring stories from strangers (Digital Edition)

    Hi guys, Looking to have some engaging and inspiring conversations! During this event, let's talk about -- - What are some of the new things you've tried recently during quarantine? - How you've all stayed productive & motivated over the past months? - What books do you recommend? - What obstacles are you currently facing and what can we do to help? The event will run via Zoom (https://zoom.us/). Depending on how many people show up, we will either talk as a large group or I will put everyone into breakout rooms of 4! *It's okay to join late!

  • Talk to a stranger over tea, make a friend (Digital Edition)

    Hi guys, Welcome to our first virtual hangout! Despite a believer in in-person connections, I really valued the video chats I've had over the past few months while in quarantine. Hence, decided that it's time to give the digital version of "Talk to a stranger, make a friend" a shot! The event will run via Zoom (https://zoom.us/). Once you arrive (on Zoom), I will put you into breakout rooms of 4 for a virtual cup of tea. I will also prepare some conversation topics to stir our conversations away from work/current events. I will be switching the groups around every 20-30 min so you'll get to meet more people in smaller groups. *Note, if you have to join late, I will still be able to put you in an existing group (or along with other late-comers!) This event is FREE, however a $5 donation is greatly appreciated. RSVP via this form! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSedp34jjmkyq0328x0g2uy6F_CWxWWZm3D6YYZ930lq0KMesQ/viewform On a different note, going to start posting events/updates on twitter, so get updates here :) https://twitter.com/cocobliu -- Here, we bring people together to learn from each other’s unique experiences.

    Metreon Food Court

    Join us on Saturday for a fun afternoon of socializing. We’ll be gathering in the Metreon Food Court. Jeremiah and Nathan will be hosting. Look for Jeremiah in the red and black flannel or Nate with black short-sleeve button up, black jeans, and a white flat-brim hat. We’ll meet at Sorabol Korean BBQ and we will have a few tables pinned down. Because it is hosted in a public space, the format will be fairly low key and informal. We’re simply here to socialize, meet new people and have fun! Some things to keep in mind, it is Chinese New Years Parade and streets may be closed off/public transit affected, so plan your journey accordingly.
