My Meetup Groups
Meetup.com is an international network of local groups. For a small fee, anyone can start their own groups -- with or without a theme for the group. The only requirement is that the group is local to the community. I am the organizer of three popular groups in the north Denver area.
Meetups at the Movies is a popular group in the area, and we see at least two movies every month. We usually get together on a Saturday night for dinner followed by a movie. We often end up going out for drinks and desserts after the movie. Eat! is a great way for me to get together for a fun meal with friends, and Flatirons View Toastmasters Club is one of the many properties I've started and used to reach new members for my Toastmasters club.
The groups keep me busy, but I'm always surrounded by friends.
