What we’re about
Missing the opportunity for good conversation, laughs that make your belly hurt, and real women who understand you? This Group, generally for women aged 40+ (not a rule; just a guideline -- ages of our Members range from early-40s to late-70s), is for you! Meet some local women, make new friends, and visit with some you've met in the past.
We will get together for drinks, dancing, movies, coffee, lunch, dinner, sporting events, wine tastings, spa outings, shopping events, TV show activities, book club and anything else that will be FUN!
Both weekend and weekday dates will be chosen... depending on everyone's interests!
Our "focus area" is generally from Chicago Ridge to Tinley Park and Blue Island to Plainfield / Shorewood / Joliet -- but, if it's FUN, we are there!!!! THE MOST important thing about this Group is that you KEEP YOUR RSVP "up to date"!! If you sign up for an event, then have to back out, contact the Event Host for that particular event IMMEDIATELY!! In many cases, reservations have been made -- or plans determined -- based on the # of yes RSVPs. *All "guests" should be women approximately age 35+, unless otherwise noted.*
**IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS** are encouraged and always welcome!! If there is something you would like to do / see / attend, you can bet there is at least one other person who is also interested.
If you join this Group, you must remain "active" in the Group. What does this mean? You MUST attend a Girls Night Out event at least 1x every 3 months or you will be removed from the Group.

- Coffee and ConversationThe Skillet House 2, Tinley Park, IL
Please join Donna and me on Tuesday mornings for a good ol' coffee klatch. I don't know about you, but I love my coffee in the mornings, and I also love chatting with interesting women! We decided to put this out there to see if there might be any retirees (or people who still work, with off hours) interested in getting together for a weekly chat time, or even just a monthly chat time. It's up to all of us who are interested!
Of course, since we will be meeting at The Skillet House 2, anyone can order more than coffee. Here is a link to their breakfast menu.
FYI - WE HAVE DECIDED ON A MONTHLY MEETUP DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS WHEN FOLKS ARE BUSIER, AND PERHAPS A WEEKLY MEETUP WHEN THE DAYS ARE SHORTER.
- Celebrating Women: International Women's Day - Pot Luck Get TogetherBar Code One 11, Worth, IL
Calling all WOMEN to join us for an evening with food (you'll bring to share), drinks (for purchase to patronize establishment), and an unforgettable evening Celebrating Women through great conversations, some inspirational/motivational activities, dancing, and lots of fun!
Whether you're looking to make new friends, catch up with old ones, need a night out, or unwind after a long week, don't miss out on this opportunity to do just that by creating memorable moments, bonding, and having a blast with like-minded women who love to have a good time.
So, grab your girlfriends and mark your calendars to come raise your glass to CELEBRATE WOMEN, and to new beginnings and new friendships, as this could be the highlight of your weekend with a few surprises!
Please bring a small snacky / appetizer dish or item to share (enough for 10) - if coming closer to the beginning as it may get a bit crowded closer to 9pm.
Some ideas include store-bought finger foods / easy eating items like chips, pretzels, cheese and crackers, baby carrots, veggies, ham roll-ups, cookies... just let me know so I can mark you for it.
Please post in comments what you will be bringing (so we can try to limit the doubles).
NOTE: Event starts at 7pm and goes until whenever you want to leave (closing is at 2am) - as 11:59pm is just a placeholder - and I may not stay past 11pm myself.
See you all soon!!!
