    @bretonvirgniia:  6 Degrees?  They have pretty positive reviews but not very many.  Want me to leave a one star review?  =)

     

    In Philly, Yelp is a pretty good gauge of what’s good and what sucks…but Toronto’s yelp pages don’t seem as developed.

    Never been into it. Went clubbing a grand total of twice after I turned 18, and one of those was my first date with Fiance (we all went in as a group). I hated it both times.

    But hey, Fiance and I have the memory of our first kiss being in a gay nightclub. Winning!

    We much prefer bbqs, quiet drinks at friends places, and pub dinners.

    I can relate to a lot of you bees. I’ll be 22 in June, and I just really don’t go out much. One of my bridesmaids goes out every weekend and multiple times a week. I don’t judge her or anything. It’s just not my cup of tea at all. Fiance is the same.  He was a partier before I met him and he just kinda grew out of it. If we do go to the bar we usually go before it gets wild (college town = many bars). We pick quieter bars to hang out at.  There are SO many rude people here it makes it no fun. Also, I’d rather have wine or a Mike’s in our home so I can browse the internet and watch Netflix!

    @bretonvirgniia:  Toronto is a very young scene in general, way too big on the club circuit. You may prefer clubs or bars just outside the GTA. Stiletto Social Club in Oakville was a fabulous club. I find that downtown is wayyyyy overrated!!! I also love Bier Markt!! Not a club, but a great place to grab a drink, catch up with friends and get out of the house. This is my usual hangout from time to time. 

    It sounds like your over the whole club scene, and I don’t blame you. Same people, same music, aggressive men and expensive!!! I agree with expanding on your social crowd if you can. I know the feeling. All my friends are still into clubs and I skip every weekend! Lol

    @bretonvirgniia:  Yikes, a minimum of 3 nights a week?!?!  I couldn’t handle that.

    I think most of my friends are in a similar life stage, so maybe that’s why it works.  I do have some single friends, but they’re actually less inclined to want to go out than some of my friends who are married and/or in serious relationships!  (That’s just a personality thing, though.)

    Do you have any friends at work?  I’m not originally from Omaha, but I’ve made all of my close friendships through work (or meeting other people through those friends).  I might be lucky because I’ve had the opportunity to work with some pretty awesome people, but I think it would have been really difficult for me to make friends otherwise.  (I know there are other ways to meet people, of course, I just think for me personally it would have been difficult.  I’m not very extroverted unless I’ve started getting to know someone, and that’s easiest for me when I’m working with them.)

    I’m 50 / 50. Depends on; my mood both on whether to decide to go out and then when I am out, people in the club and my tiredness level. Now I consider what else needs doing over the weekend.

    Meh, I’m a stay at home kinda gal. I’ll curl up with a movie, blankets, pizza, and some wine any day. I’m not big on going out.

    I do love a good English pub though as long as it has a more relaxed atmosphere. I’ve never been to a nightclub, and I frankly have no interest.

    I’m a total introvert, so I’m perfectly happy sitting at home and being on the Bee. This is plenty of social interaction for me for tonight. 

    I’ve never been to a nightclub, and the only time I was even interested in going was when I was barely 18 and my best guy friend of 7 (now almost 10) years wanted to take me. 

    FH and I have gone to a pool hall before. I liked that. We don’t go often, and we’ve only gone with small groups of people (once with his dad and sister), and I’m not terrible at pool once I get the hang of it.
