San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
New in town and having trouble meeting people?
Lived here your whole life but want to make new friends?
Did you grow up here, leave, and just move back?
Come break the bubble with us.
What is Break the Bubble, you ask?
We host events to help you make new friends. All you have to do is show up and we'll do the rest.
What makes Break The Bubble different?
It's a way for Minnesotans to meet new people and make new friends! For one, it's at a brewery. People tend to open up a little after a few beers. For two, there will be a theme. Something to get people talking. Our first two events were a huge success, so we're going to run future events in a similar fashion.
What's the format?
- Show up
- Slap on a name tag
- Introduce yourself to someone new
(Try to avoid talking only with people you already know. Mix things up; that’s the point!)
What's the theme?
The theme this month is Two Things. On your name tag, you'll put two things you're passionate and/or excited about.
- Matt's excited about 1) pizza, and 2) connecting people
- Jeremy's passionate about 1) travel and 2) TOWIE
- Jen's excited about 1) hiking and 2) themed Christmas celebrations
They don't have to be about food. They can be serious. Or funny. Or whatever. Things that make you a unique snowflake.
Remember that you'll be asked about these things all night, so come prepared with wackiest, most interesting things about you. It’s going to be awesome – this is an event not to be missed!
But I'm an introverted nerdy tech guy who is most comfortable as a wall flower and has problems striking up interesting conversations with strangers. Is this event still for me?
Yes, definitely! Everybody's there to talk to people they don't know. Which means everybody feels a little awkward.
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope! Just your awesome self.
What if I get hungry?
There will be a food truck, plus you can bring food into the bar. How cool is that?
Help us help you be awesome!
We realize it's only two weeks away, so we also need your help in spreading the word. Invite your friends, tweet about us, blog about us, post on facebook, or something else. Capacity is limited, so we ask that you only RSVP if you're really going to attend. Just because it's a free event doesn't mean you can RSVP and not show up. Don't be a Facebook "Maybe” (creeper). Other people want your spot!
One last question, where can I go for more information?
If you have any questions, comments, or would like to volunteer, please let us know by clicking on the big "Contact the Organizer" button on the right menu.
