Meet New People While Having New Adventures in Santa Clara
The first week of April was a busy one for Events & Adventures members in the Bay Area, as we sang, danced, made works of art, and learned how to defend ourselves. All these things were mixed in with a little laughter over wine, and a hike through the redwoods to look at waterfalls.
On Monday, we found our inner artists as we learned to draw caricatures from a professional. The venue was an eclectic warehouse covered with art from the ceiling to the floor. We learned and created while a DJ filled the air with great beats for inspiration. Then on Tuesday, we met for our weekly tradition of sand volleyball, board games, drinks and good company at The Sports Page Bar and Grill. As usual, over two dozen of our members were in attendance.
On Wednesday, we attended an incredible class in self-defence. The Urban Combat Reality-Based Self-Defence class taught us how to respond to dangerous emergencies in the real world. We learned what to do when a stranger approaches and how to react if they were to attempt to enter our cars. Not only was the information invaluable, but the atmosphere was also energetic and incredibly fun. We will definitely be going back to this venue!
Thursday night we cowboyed it up with a line dancing lesson and then mingled at a country-western bar. Then on Friday, over two dozen of our members sang their hearts out when we revisited our favorite karaoke bar. At Events & Adventures it doesn’t matter how well you sing—all your club members will support you and cheer you on from the sidelines. So let all your inhibitions fly right out the window!
When Saturday night rolled around, over two dozen of our members relaxed and mingled at a shoe-themed wine bar. A little wine, a little shoe shopping and a lot of laughs ensued! Finally on Sunday morning, we pulled on our hiking boots and nearly three dozen members hit the trails to walk through redwoods and view breathtaking waterfalls. As always with our Events & Adventures hikes, this event was incredibly popular. It was a beautiful day to get some exercise and to meet new people. So many memories were already created this week, and many more left to make this the month!
