What we're about

Bringing together scientists, writers, artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to grab drinks after work (around Somerville, Cambridge, Boston). This group is about finding the balance between being overwhelmed and underwhelmed; here we just want to feel whelmed.

People who will enjoy themselves in this meetup:

πŸ• In their 20's, 30's, and 40's: leaving (or left) college to discover that adulthood is mostly about being tired and wishing you hadn't made plans

πŸ• Scientists, writers, artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs welcome: looking for a quick break away from the office space bubble; we skip right through the small talk and share the kind of campfire stories which remind us that we're all still figuring life out together

πŸ• No bankers, lawyers, or consultants: you're the foundations of our society, but this group just wants the space to wave hands around explaining wild ideas and not have another fine day ruined by "responsibilities"

Whether you're driven by data or emotion, come hang out with other interesting people who just might be friends you haven't yet met.

A bit of info about this meetup's hosts: we're a two-person team trying to help people make new friends in Boston by building a local events and information startup. Who knows where this adventure will go, but if you want to share stories of friendship and heartbreak, or hear about things we've learned from hosting events and building an app, then we'd be happy to grab drinks 🍺
