Sign-up by calling 206-789-1217 or email [email protected]

*Backyard Lunch Groups – Small in-person gatherings (New)

Date/Time TBD
Join a group of 5 others and meet up for lunch outdoors once a month.  These meet-ups will rotate among those in the group who are able to host (no worries if you cannot host – please still join!).  The group will decide upon a mutually agreeable day and time to meet each month.  To keep these events COVID (un)friendly, please bring your own lunch, eating utensils, and drink.  Then take it all back home with you afterwards.  These meet-ups can happen rain or shine! Sign-up by calling 206-789-1217 or email [email protected]

*Phinneywood Walking Group (New)

Date/Time TBD
Want to get outside and walk?  Please join others for a walk through Phinney/Greenwood once a week on 1st Ave NW (a street has been closed to through traffic).  We will keep this group small.  Once the group is formed, you will choose the day and time that works for the group. Sign-up by calling 206-789-1217 or email [email protected]

Zoom Supper Clubs (New)

Date/Time TBD
Would you like to join a Village Supper Club?  Because of COVID, supper clubs will now meet via zoom.  Join a group of up to 10 people for a virtual dinner together, once a month.  Once it’s safe to eat out at restaurants again, the group will move to in person dining at various restaurants around NW Seattle.  This is a self-governing group, with no leader.  When you are able to eat together in person, you will take turns choosing the restaurant for the month, and making the reservation. Sign-up by calling 206-789-1217 or email [email protected]

Let’s Binge! (New)

Date/Time TBD
Do you enjoy binge watching shows?  If so, this is the group for you!  The first show will be “The Office” on Netflix which is the ultimate feel good show.  Once the group is formed, you’ll agree upon how many episodes to watch each week.  You will meet weekly via Zoom to discuss the show and share in the laughter.
