ABOUT MACEY

THE HOST WITH THE MOST

Making friends as an adult is really hard! People are awkward, flaky, and not impressive....

So I decided to do something about it.

I've been hosting Meetup events for five years. I hosted my first event January 2017 in Chicago. It was snowing and felt like -20 outside. I thought "Surely no one is going to come?" If you've ever been to Chicago during the winter, you know it takes serious motivation to decide to put on 8 layers of clothing and leave your house to go do anything - much less go hangout with strangers?! I was proved wrong. The event was a hit. I realized that so many of us are in the same boat and craving platonic connections like we had growing up, without the pressure and games that come with romantic ones. The pandemic made us crave these connections even more as we spent years isolated and working form home. I quickly discovered my love for connecting people and proving friendships can be made no matter your age or personality. Oh, & that life is a party!

 

If you've ever been to a Meetup event, I'm sure you know the bar is low. Most events are gag-inducing. However, I've come to find that with a creative approach and hilariously realistic descriptions, I can host some pretty rad events! 🎉 Come join the party & find some new friends while you're at it!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

TO KNOW

THE DEAL

DRINKS ALWAYS READILY AVAILABLE

A little liquid courage goes so freaking far when it comes to spending a few hours with strangers. Mentally you know should be binge watching Netflix from the comfort of you own home instead of sharing your life story with anyone who will listen. For that reason, all events will take place somewhere clinkable.

INCLUSIVE, FUN,

& WELCOMING

Confetti Burst

Making friends as an adult is tough... mostly because people are jerks, right?! Look, I can't promise you won't meet someone at an event who isn't a complete psychopath. I can promise to choose fun places, add a unique spin on otherwise dull activities, & to say "Bye Felicia" to anyone crossing any lines.

THERE'S A PANDEMIC YOU GUYS

Ancient Statue with Mask

Ya know, incase you've been living under a rock. Due to COVID-19 and state regulations, it is strongly advised to only attend in-person events if you have had the vax. Many events will still be offered online for those of us who have embraced home life.

SOCIAL LIFE WITH A LOW PRICE

Credit Card

Unlike expensive social groups, my group costs nothing to join! Simply pay for your own food & drinks! Sometimes we do have ticketed events that you can purchase but the majority do not require any payment to attend.
