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.
