Attending Events & Adventures activities is worth it. I was new in my area so I wanted to meet new people and find things to do. Before attending my first event I didn't know exactly what I was gonna enter into, but it went really good. I've been to a lot of trips for a year and a half since joining. I do five to eight events a month, like hiking and going to restaurants and dance clubs. We recently did hang gliding and so far it's my favorite. I've had a good experience and I found new friends. I'm going to do the Friday the 13th event that's coming up in my area.
I originally heard about Events and Adventures through my sister. The club caught my interest because it provides an opportunity to meet new people. I work in a cubicle so I'm kind of isolated. I was nervous and excited before arriving at my first event because I wasn't sure what to expect. But it changed after I arrived. It was a splatter paint party and supposed to be at the facility but it ended up being in the parking lot of the club. I've attended 10 events and trips so far. They were all ones that I haven't done previously so they were things that I can now say I've done. Some of them I might do again while others I don't want to repeat anymore.
All of my travel and hotel experiences have been local. I did the zip line at Trinity Forest, the stand-up paddle boat at White Rock Lake, the fencing in Farmers Branch, the glass fusion at Quiggly's Clayhouse, the splatter your paint thing, the newcomers gathering, and the game night. I did one this past weekend. However, I have to look and see what coincides with my schedule because I've gone back to school. I'm still too new to meet any people that would be my closest and dearest friends so far. I'm also not looking, at this point in time, for a romantic meeting. My experience was great. In fact, I have recommended it a couple of times to my friends. I got to meet more people than I have in any of the other events even if I never really knew what that was before that night.
I wanted to get out and do new things that I could not come up with on my own or haven't thought of before. This made me interested in joining Events and Adventures. I was nervous arriving at my first event but when I introduced myself to people and get to know everyone, it becomes second nature. I've attended over 30 events, and the skydiving event that happened back in August was worthwhile. Traveling was fine too and has been exciting overall. I also went to a pumpkin picking apple orchard patch out in Jonamac in Malta, Illinois. In attending these events, I'm making tons of new friends. I’ve probably met more people in the last six months than I did all of last year.
I like meeting new people. I joined Events & Adventures and have attended a lot of events. The Escape Room was pretty fun, I’ve been going to more of the mingle stuff, like the dinners but haven’t had a chance to go on the camping stuff. I also try to do a lot of stuff during the week but this year’s been a little bit harder for me to get out because of my work schedule. I’ve only met a couple of new friends and not really much in having met any girls because there’s not a huge amount of females in my age group at Events & Adventures.
I'm relatively new to Vancouver and single so I thought to check Events & Adventures out. So far, I've attended two events. The first one that I went to was the ice breaker and games night that they do once a month. And my favorite was the second one that I went to. We went on a harbor cruise boat party and it was really fun. I really enjoyed Events & Adventures and the people are really great, but it definitely seems to be way more women than men. That’s what some of the other girls were saying, too. But the good thing about when we went on that harbor boat cruise party was we were only like a group of 12 that went on. But then there were 250 people on that boat so it wasn’t just us.
So when I go to events where there are other people, I have my home base of these Events & Adventures people and I don’t have to hang out with them the whole time. That’s why it worked so well because I had a group of people and a set of tables I could hang out with, but I could also go and mingle and dance. And there was a whole lot of other things going on other than that. I've also recommended them. In fact, I bring my friends with me to events and they all wanna come with me.

I was interested in getting out and meeting new people, and I've done that at Events and Adventures. I go to about ten events per month, and going to Ireland and Spain were particularly awesome. They were both eleven-day trips. They also had us meet at a central location in New York. We also got together which was okay, but it could be better. There are standard touristy tour bus tours that we can choose to go on or not. Most people go most days, and they're a lot of fun. They get all the touristy stuff out of the way. Then we've got free time in the afternoon and evenings to explore the cities and nightlife. I've also participated in the Seattle Symphony, volleyball, whirly ball, trampoline dodge ball, bonfires at Golden Gardens and Alki Beach, and Comedy Night at Emirates.
I got interested in joining Events & Adventures to see outdoor activities. I've been to 5 events, and my favorite was the hiking trip. I've also been to orienteering game nights and a Piano Bar event. I've made some new girlfriends because of these events. I also planned to do flag football.
With Events & Adventures, I could do things and meet up with people instead of talking to them via fax or messaging. It was fun and relaxing. I've had new experiences and it was all-around a good time. I got out of it what I put into it. I was a bit nervous on my first event, the orientation, since I didn't know what to expect. But I’ve been comfortable enough since I was interviewed and everybody else was interviewed and went through the screening. I didn’t know that it was gonna be that fast. Right after the orientation, we went bowling and people tried to get to know me in a genuine sense.
I have since gone camping twice, and I now go to two activities in a week since I joined in April. The Wildman Adventure camping trip has been my favorite because we did activities that I have not done before. The weekend was full of activities and the camper that hosted us did a good job. It was fun and we were in a good spot. We didn’t have to worry about food because that was part of the whole package deal. The food was good and there was a lot. I also signed up for upcoming hikes and I have my weekly volleyball. I’ve made a lot of new friends. It's nice to be around a commune of people who have careers and their life is going well. I don't feel like they are talking to like just to sleep with me.
I like all the different stuff that Events & Adventures do. So far, I have attended 20 events with them. I really enjoyed their outdoor events like hiking and pool parties. The fourth of July party was fun too. I definitely made some new friends. I would like to be able to register for October events but my account is blocked. I can’t register until the end of the month which really sucks. The whole user-friendliness of the website and the registration process is wonky. It distracts a little the value that I feel I'm getting out of what I pay for as part of the club.
I got interested with Events & Adventures since I like doing fun things and getting off my couch. On the day that I signed up, I was at my first event about four hours later, which was the orientation and game night. So I didn't have a chance to think about it. Then I attended three events last week, another 3 events the weekend before that, one last night, and two this weekend. I've done game night, Pedal Pub party, sand volleyball, orienteering, a hike, the Dueling Piano Bar, and when there was a glitch on the Pedal Pub once, we went on a pub crawl of our own walking around. Pete's Piano Bar is definitely the most fun at all of them so far. I also cannot wait for the bowling. But I lost track of quite a few events and have not had a chance to do a trip yet. I have found some friends and I am loving it so it's definitely a lot of fun and keeping me active.
I heard about Events & Adventures on the radio at 2 o'clock in the morning on a cold February going back to Montana. At first, I was skeptical. I heard it again and I let myself go to see what it's about. So, I pretty much scheduled online and came in and then I found out really what it was about and what it all entailed and gave them a try. What encouraged me to want to become a member was all the activities that I had no clue existed here.I've only been a member since May, and, right off the bat, I went on two camping trips. I've done almost a hundred events by now. I was pretty calm and casual about the first event. I did six years in the active duty of the military, so I was used to just jumping into things and not knowing what to expect, but hope for the best. So, I was pretty excited to get in my first event and then I got there and met the host, who is now a good friend of mine. She introduced me to everyone,
we played volleyball and it was a blast. Furthermore, the host always knows how to make everyone feel welcome. I got to witness it firsthand with new members always coming in and how anxious they look. When they meet the host, they start meeting everyone right off the bat before the event even starts. Everyone's calm and it's like everyone's known each other forever.
I never tubed before and didn't know what the New Braunfels Memorial Day tubing and camping trip all entailed, and it was my favorite trip so far. I now made friends in Dallas. My network had grown pretty much overnight on my first big event - that makes Events and Adventures great. The ones that I've gone to overnight, which have mainly been the camping ones, have never been a disappointment. I have recommended Events and Adventures to friends and then they decided to up and leave Houston.
My social circle shrank considerably after going through a divorce. I wanted to new people so I signed up with Events and Adventures. I was excited the day that I signed up and I went to an event that night. It was a meet and greet at The Perch, Chandler. When I got there, I was a little nervous because I wasn't sure what to expect. By the time I found where everybody was and sat down, everybody was saying hi and started to talk right away.
I already did about nine events. I enjoyed the indoor skydiving, bowling was really fun, pickleball was pretty cool, and volleyball was awesome. There hasn't been anything that I've been to that I was bummed about. And then Monday is BYOB painting, Tuesday is pickleball again, and I'm signed up for something on Wednesday. I've got a busy week next week. The activities made by Events & Adventures has been fun. I'm enjoying myself - I even hang out with some people outside of the club a couple of times. I definitely made some friends. I am single and it's great if something happens, but it’s not the priority at this point. In addition, the people that run the place are pretty cool and I definitely like the coordinators. Everybody's been very helpful, so I definitely dig the experience. It's an entertaining experience.
I was already living a lifestyle of Events & Adventures. It was just that I don't have the time to always plan my own event anymore because of work. The people I live with suggested Events and Adventures for me when somebody heard their commercial on the radio. I felt excited and happy when I went to my first event. It was a mishap and was unexpected. It was Drag Queen Bingo. The group was gone, like they weren't there, but we still had a good time. We still mingled, talked, and got to know each other. We ate sushi, and it was still fun.
I was going to a lot of events. My favorite was the art gallery, and what I liked about it the most was it was an actual member who showed his work. It was cool to see a member's work and get to know him as an artist. It was also cool to talk to him as well as other people who were there. I've also gone to a dinner and a movie, and I've been to a baseball game. I went to a camping trip too. I pretty much do a little bit of everything. I had about 40 events in my first couple of months before I finally slowed down. I have a couple of people that I'm still in contact with even without the event.
I became interested in Events and Adventures so that I could get out and do stuff over just working and going home. I've been in since October last year and I've been to 200 plus events. I've been to Trapeze, the BSF Waterpark and Lego which was a lot of fun. Trampoline dodgeball is also a really good one that they do every once in a while. The only trip I've been on is the camping trip and I really enjoyed it. It was very well-made and well-organized. The host took care of everything very well. I've made a lot of good friends and I've told a lot of people if they knew anyone to go ahead and join.
Factual basis uncertain
This club has no concern for anyone's well-being. If a member threatens you outside of club activities they won't kick them out or do anything at all. You have to pay out of pocket for ALL activities that are not in the clubhouse. The refund period is way too short. People don't give out contact info at events and you almost never see them again at other events.
Events and Adventures' scheduled get-togethers got me interested, and I really enjoy them. I was nervous arriving at my first event but I had a great time. I've been to six events within over a month, and the lake excursions were my favorite. I've also done wine touring, wine tasting, happy hours, trivia night, kayaking at the lake, and I've made new friends.
I like the fact that Events and Adventures has activities almost everyday of the month. It allows me to pick and choose when I’m available to go and join one. I felt neutral before getting into my first event with them. I was feeling it out at first, trying to see if it was going to be a good fit or not. So far, I've only attended one event. It was a new members’ icebreaker. Unfortunately, Army socked me with new training and it’s going to take me out for about 14 weeks. So I’m going to end up having to cancel my membership.
I made friends but I didn’t get any phone numbers. Nonetheless, I met some great people. If I end up being stationed back around the Houston area, I definitely would sign up again. I like that they provide more open atmosphere, that there’s no schedules or constraints to the activities that we did at the meet and greet. They had a lot of options available and let us go about doing it how we wanted. They had board games, ping pong tables, card games and they just let us do our own thing and then we meet other people.
When I moved to the Dallas area, I didn’t know anybody and I was newly single, so I thought joining Events and Adventures would be a good opportunity to explore. I've been to 15 events and my favorite was when we had a game night one night. It was pretty fun - just hanging out and playing the game. Mostly I’ve been to dinners and happy hours. We went to skeet shooting last week. I’m not signed up for anything yet right now, but there’s a party boat on Sunday I’m looking at and that sounds pretty good. Also, they have a lot of events and most of them are free which is good, but they need to get more people. It’s usually the same 20 or 30 people coming to every event even though their website shows 2,000 members. They should send out emails and say, “Hey! We haven’t seen you for a while. Please come out.” I’m pretty happy with Events and Adventures, but the only bad thing about it was the price.
One thing I like about Events and Adventures is that they host these exciting activities that mostly I like getting involved in, like skydiving and sailboats, things that are not really on the normal routine a lot. I attended about 10 events in a span of two years. I was feeling awkward attending some of the events because people were single like me and also a little bit nervous. It was hard to connect with people who attend to these events at times.
My favorite event was the dog sledding where we went up to Duluth. The travel was two hours and it was a group ride, which was nice. On the way there, I had a nice conversation with the other people. But the thing is, they were older than me. Then when we got there, I love their educating us and I love how they allow us to train us how to get the dog ready go on the sled, getting us involved with the dogs. I wish we could ride it for just a little bit longer. But then again, it was more of an introduction. There was also a big racing horse there and it was the first time I ever got close to one.
I also went to karaoke. While waiting for my turn, I was talking around with others in the bar. And it did feel awkward because there are people who are just standing there, all nervous and didn’t wanna talk. They only talked to someone who they felt most comfortable, while some were not even willing to introduce themselves. I also attended a Latino dance class and other ones that I just signed up for but was unable to attend. I feel disappointed that I didn't get refunded for those.
Overall, I love the events. They are exciting and fun but getting involved with new people that I don’t know made the events dead. The down part is talking and trying to get along with other people who were nervous or were there to make a friendship. The open up atmosphere is not really open to people. I feel the host could’ve done better in getting people to socialize or make everyone at ease.
I really like Events and Adventures. There's always something to do. I can go somewhere with a group of people, and I can meet new people or hang out with people I already know. I was a bit nervous during my first event, but once I got there, they made me feel really comfortable. Since then I’ve been to the Hot Yoga three times and I've also gone kayaking which was my favorite. Then I've been to the rooftop party, the Single Mingle, and the birthday potluck. I’ve met some new friends.
I have been a member of E&A for over a little over a year. I have a serious financial need to have the $100 each month for living expenses. I was emailed the fine print in the contract stating that after 30 days I would not be able to cancel. I was never told that was the case when I signed the contract. They will reduce my payments, but that would mean I would have more time added to my contract. I have only attended one event. Most events have an additional cost to attend. I am very disappointed that I can't terminate my membership. Please think twice about joining this.
I was in a long relationship that ended back in 2004 and it did not go well. And so I took some time off out of the dating scene and focused on myself for a few years. And then I decided to start checking out the dating scene a little bit. I tried several dating sites like Match, eHarmony, IJL, OkCupid, Tinder and Bumble but decided to go with Events & Adventures, which I had been considering for quite some time. I went in, had an interview, and signed up. The gal that interviewed me was very clear in her communication that this isn’t a hook up club but an opportunity for people to get out, make new friends, try new things.
There was a host here in the Seattle Chapter that was really positive considering everything he has to deal with. I’m very impressed by his work. However, I had a really bad experience with a host on my third event. I showed up on a poker night but the person who was going to put on the event passed away, and so they turned it into a mingle at a bar. The host didn’t have any signage, which was fine because I just went up and said, “Hey, I’m here for the Events & Adventures.” They said, “Oh, it’s upstairs in the back corner.” I signed in, ran to the restroom and when I came back, I got into a conversation with the host. He said, “Events & Adventures is for desperate people.” And that the salespeople who got me to sign up are supposed to hype it up.
I was actually very upset about that so I said, “Well, I have to disagree. I’m not really desperate because I have a very large and a lot of good friends. I know all of them and I’ve met all of them and try to meet new people.” It’s not even about the activities because I do most of the activities that Events & Adventures does, but I’m trying to get to meet new people. And so he was like, “Yeah. Well, if you meet and if you see any good, nice guys, attractive guys or good catches, you kinda have to be there like right when they start to try and snatch them up before anybody else does because otherwise they’re gonna go off and they’re just gonna get snatched up by someone else really, really fast.”
A part of me thinks that Events & Adventures just needs a warm body to coordinate the logistics at the time of the event. And often times the hosts, other than the introduction and signing in, are very easy to ignore or avoid if I don’t want to be around them. And then I got to know other hosts and found that that was not a consistent perspective with other hosts.
I’ve realized that I’m not going to meet a love interest, but I have made some really good friends. In fact, I’m preparing for a dinner that I’m hosting at my home for about seven other people that I have met through Events & Adventures. Me and a friend from E&A also signed up for the Cuba trip in January which I'm really excited about.
My membership isn’t even up until late next year, and I’ve already thought about whether or not to sign up again. If I’m going to stay, I might as well just pay for a lifetime membership because of the trips and the convenience of having somebody else plan them. It’s good for what it is and it’s better than It’s Just Lunch. They accomplish what they need but they need to work on recruiting better guys because it’s mostly girls and some are not always very pleasant to be around at events. There have been times that I have decided not to go to an event because there are people I don’t enjoy being around. But all in all, I'm satisfied with E&A for at least making the best effort to fulfill its purpose.
I'm interested in doing different events and the trips so I joined Events & Adventures. I was a little nervous in my first event and now I've attended seven trips and my favorite trip is the Grand Canyon rafting. I just went to volleyball on a Tuesday night. I'm thinking about doing the Cuba trip but from looking at the prices, they are charging about double what it should cost. They should do a better job of pricing their trips. I recommend them to other people, but it's always with the caveat that one won't get a discount on any of the events. A lot of the new people I meet are always disappointed that they pay so much to be a member and they think they're gonna get discounts on events but they don't. But over the year, I've found a couple of significant others being with Events & Adventures.
This company was designed to steal your money!!! The only people that benefit are the people who work there!! They get you in the office and say everything to hold your money then give you misled information then when you realize within the time period that you do not want to be a part of their cult, they threaten you with legal actions to make your credit go bad! I just moved here and was told it's a good way to meet people and I went and paid $100 fee as Paul stated that I had to!!! I told him I am not working and that I just moved here!! He said he would give me a good price as this would be a good way to meet people!! Two days later I called to ask them to cancel my membership because I honestly can't afford it and the money grabbing scam artists told me all kinds of story!!!
I asked to speak with the owner because I have never been to one of their events or adventures and would like to be removed!!! They started telling me that I signed and need to pay the remaining money!!! I told them I am not asking for the $100 back. They can keep it!!! I just moved here and have no family and limited resources and only enough money to buy food and pay my rent and these vultures would prefer to see you die of starvation and be homeless!!! Do...not...join!!! Red flag!! Red flag!!! Red flag!!! Red flag!!! Scam!!! Scam!!! Scam!!! Anyone who writes a good review either works there or is benefiting from the money they steal from you!! Be very careful!!!
I was fairly new to the area, worked from home and was looking to meet new people. I was excited when I arrived at my first activity with Events and Adventures. I've been with them for four months now and have probably attended 20-30 events and trips. Their Pie and Beer was a good pairing. It was in a new location of Dallas which I didn’t frequent, and it had a really cool vibe and neat concepts to it. Additionally, we had a wine and cheese pairing, we did an escape room, dinners out at new restaurants, game night, and some of the standards in our area. I also do volleyball every week. With Events and Adventures, I've made some new friends and it's been very good so far.
I was new in town and wanted places to get out to and to learn about the city, so I joined Events and Adventures, and it has been great. Lately I’ve been going to one of their events a week. The camping trip is my favorite because I love to camp. I've gone canoeing and partying with them, too. I'll be going to a mingle, then I'm going to Duluth next weekend for the Tall Ships Festival on Lake Superior. Events and Adventures does a wonderful job. I’m really impressed with their leadership.
What got me interested with Events and Adventures were the different activities they offered and I also like to do fun things with people. I joined in early June, and I've been traveling a lot this summer for work so I haven't been able to go to many events. I've only been to three, and they were fun. I was a little nervous during my first event but it ended up good. I've been to two dinners and then the hiking trip which I liked, and I'm planning to do a few of the events this coming weekend. Since I've only been to a few things, I haven't seen the broad scope of the members in Houston, but from that small pamphlet I've seen, it's not very diverse. In the dinners that I went to, it was 90% women which was okay. Everybody needs more girlfriends.
Thank you for your feedback! We love hearing positive stories like yours. Hope to see you out at more events soon!
Original review: Aug. 6, 2016
I wanted to be able to get out and meet people, so I signed up with Events & Adventures. I felt a little nervous before attending the first event but felt better after. Everybody was very nice and I’ve made friends. I've attended probably 40 or 50 events and I like doing the sports activities, such as the volleyball, wallyball, parks and hiking events as those were fun. I also like the theater and mingles where we meet at a local bar or restaurant and have dinner or drinks and visits. I'm going to Spain next and I'm looking forward to it to be so much fine.
Somebody told me about Events & Adventures, I tried it, and since then I've been a member for three years. I've done indoor rock climbing, kayaking, and the Premier Club. I've made two new girl friends because of the events. I signed up for a few things in August like the President George Bush Museum, a couple of hikes, the Premier Club, and the dinner theatre which I call the "popcorn theatre" because people throw popcorn at the actors on stage. It’s fun, very interactive, and they’re always comedies.
My friend and I were new to the area and we were both working 80-plus hours a week and needed to make time for our social life. She was potentially going to join Events & Adventures and she told me about them, then we joined. I was little anxious arriving to our first event because they didn’t provide a lot of information and I didn’t know what to expect. The site says we got to call and come in, so I was hoping it wasn’t gonna be a waste of time. My friend and I both went in at the same time and did a two-person interview.
I've been a member since March and have attended about 30 events and trips. My favorite was the Memorial Day camping which was shenanigans for days. It was an adults only campground so it was absolutely fantastic. We met with the Chicago group that had lots of great people and we have made a lot of really close friends who we clicked with and hung out with. Tuesday night volleyball is always fun, too, during the summer. So far I've also participated in Geek Trivia, paddleboarding, and the camping trip while my friend, Gloria, has done the horse races. I plan on doing Labor Day camping and a few more others. It's just frustrating that recently, I was having difficulty trying to get in contact with someone in the office and it seems like there's a lot of hoops to jump through to try to get to my final answer. I was able to take care of it today, but took a two-week process. Still, overall, it’s been good.
