Fort Lauderdale Meetups

What to Expect from Events & Adventures

We can all agree that 2020 has been a tough year for keeping any kind of social life. Fort Lauderdale has not been an exception to this rule. As we all struggle to adapt to new norms like working from home or masking up at the store, our social lives need some adjustments as well. More than ever, connecting with other people has become an essential, and somewhat tricky concept to navigate. Luckily, Fort Lauderdale meetups can help here!

Events & Adventures has been bringing singles together for over 30 years through casual, fun hangouts at hosted events where everyone is single. Fort Lauderdale meetups from Events & Adventure take full advantage of the amazing weather and local venues to treat single members to a truly unique calendar of events.

Taking the recent events into consideration, the events have been adjusted to keep everyone’s safety in mind. The addition of a full suite of virtual events has helped our singles stay connected during the worst of the pandemic, but there is light at the end of the tunnel! Things are returning back to normal! Now our singles get to enjoy the best of both virtual and in-person events, so you can stay social no matter what is happening outside.

The single members in each of our clubs are what give each city character. There are always new people to meet, new things to do, and a different dating perspective to find. When people relax and hang out as a group, connections form naturally, whether it is friendship or romance. To truly get an insider’s view on what Fort Lauderdale meetups look like, we’ve spoken with the Event Manager in Fort Lauderdale, for some insight on her club. The Event Manager plans all the fun and is one-on-one with the members on a daily basis. We did a quick Q&A with her to see what she had to say on Fort Lauderdale’s singles scene.

 

Q. What makes your city special?

A. Fort Lauderdale meetups are special because this city is the main meeting spot for all of our members and the most familiar to people in South Florida. We have members from West Palm Beach/Jupiter/Delray Beach and Miami/Kendall/South Beach, with Fort Lauderdale as the sweet spot. Everything is within walking distance in Fort Lauderdale which is a breath of fresh air because you know the party isn’t going to stop to re-park your car. Fort Lauderdale meetups carry on like a bar hop from one thing to another!

Q. If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A. Members here are open-minded. Single people as a whole want to continue to grow and experience life to the fullest! The only thing holding most people back is not having others to do it with. We have one member who continuously buries himself in his work and has never done much that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Since joining the club, he targets events that he’s never done; such as going to open-mic nights, trying Indian food, rock climbing, and beach volleyball.

It’s funny, too, because he will sit back and watch at first but by the end of the event, he’s the expert! “You’re going to go from this rock, to that rock, to the other rock and you’ll be at the top. Watch!” And he’ll scale the hardest wall in the gym, effortlessly. It’s really thrilling watching people do something they’ve never done before and enjoy it. Regardless of if they’re naturals like he is, everyone beams when they are experiencing something with others. It’s human nature.

Q. What’s your personal favorite event out of all the Fort Lauderdale meetups?

A. A great night in Fort Lauderdale? It depends on what outfit you want to wear. If you’re coming from work – go to Las Olas. Start the night at the NSU Museum with 1-for-2 drinks and happy art, then walk down the street for dinner (at literally any restaurant, they’re all amazing). A little further down, there are great theme bars with live music and karaoke. If you want to let your hair down, I suggest night volleyball to watch the sunset, BYOB and unwind with some sandy competition!

Q. What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A. The most popular events are game nights! We always have them at a different location and games are a light-hearted, easy way of connecting with other people. Over games, there’s no forced small talk, which singles typically dislike. It’s just bonding over a game and enjoying the night in a very casual fun way.

Q. Have you witnessed love connections?

A. I see love connections all the time! But this is because we offer people such a unique way to meet people! When you’re doing something you love and just having fun, sparks are bound to fly. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful friendships blossom in the club. As most adults experience, making friends (outside of work) is very difficult. We put together events that bring out the best of people’s personalities and interests, which makes it really easy to form friendships – not just acquaintances.

This type of energy (friendship and comradery) is so attractive that it brings a lot of attention to our group when we’re in public places. If we’re playing volleyball – people will join us, if we’re rock climbing – people want to talk to us. A lot of what you’re going to find is dependent on the energy you’re putting out there, so the more a person joins in and gets involved, the more of a chance they will have to find that love connection or friendship that will actually last.

Whether you’re looking to get out of the house, make new friends, or to meet someone special, Events & Adventures offers something from everyone. If you’d like to check out our Fort Lauderdale meetups and meet some of it’s amazing singles, just visit eventsandadventures.com.

A Meetup in Miami

What to Expect from Events & Adventures

It’s time to heat things up with a meetup in Miami from Events & Adventures South Florida. Each Events & Adventures city is special and unique in its own way. Our dynamic groups of single members are what give each city character and a thrilling calendar of events. If you’re single and looking to get out of the house or meet someone special, Events & Adventures hosts over 30 events every month including in-person activities and fun virtual events. A meetup in Miami allows you to meet new people, try new things, and find excitement in paradise!

But how do you know what a meetup in Miami really has in store? We went straight to the Event Managers who deal with our members daily to get inside information on what the singles in this city are like:

Q: What makes a meetup in Miami special?

A:The Miami area is special because you can find paradise in every direction. Explore South Florida by driving 30 minutes in any direction and you can find something different. From neon lights and beach club vibes to hammock trees that shade the streets with vast gardens of tropical paradise. Then suddenly, alligators or panthers with absolutely no civilization around you.

Q: If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A: Like the temperature, South Florida members are very warm. These members are very receptive to new experiences, including connecting with new people, ideas and backgrounds.

Q: What’s your personal favorite meetup at Events & Adventures?

A: My favorite activity is the Epic Hikes Series. Every month we explore a new park in Florida, which is very special because of how different Florida’s landscape changes in every direction. We’ve gone to the heart of the Florida panthers’ habitat in the Everglades, to hiking paths along the ocean where we’ve walked through the rocks and corals shaped by the waves of the ocean.

An event that I’m really looking forward to takes place over 2 days. Our members really like being outside for a full moon and this summer there is a Strawberry Full Moon. It’s just as beautiful as you can imagine. The night before we’re having Strawberry Fields Forever cooking class featuring a 3 course “All Things Strawberry” menu, along with strawberry martinis. The night of the full moon, we’re going to meet up at the park for a themed full moon circle. Complete with the courses we learned to cook, astrological activities, and games as we watch the moon rise!

Q: What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A: The most popular events speak volumes to the independence and curiosity of these singles. Full Moon kayaking is an awesome event because we all get our own kayaks and go out on the water for a couple of hours. When we come back, there’s a bonfire with s’mores and we all mingle. People also enjoy new areas of South Florida so we put together tours and experiences that bring out South Florida culture. This summer, we’re doing a midnight snack attack event in Little Havana. There is a local favorite called La Palma that serves churros and chocolate, with the Little Havana mural around the corner. It’s a really hearty event that is the ultimate #SouthFloridaLife experience.

Q: Have you witnessed love connections?

A: I’ve thankfully seen connections flourish within our club. One story involves our staff being very talented in seeing the best and brightest of our members from their initial interviews. It’s very rare that the staff mentions a potential connection to a member, but in one case it was undeniable. Without disclosing this person’s identity, our staff mentioned the potential for a connection in the club during someone’s interview. It was an instant connection when the two met, and we didn’t say until later on that it had been the match mentioned in the interview. The two are really cute and are thriving together!

Although this is just one example, meeting people through a meetup in Miami is easy with Events & Adventures. When people focus on just having fun, everyone is single and everyone shares common interests in the activity, sparks are bound to fly!
