Events and Adventures is a social club for singles. We run 30-50 events each month in the Minneapolis area, from hiking and sailing to house parties and world travel. No photo-dates - no match making. We believe that when you relax and have fun, that is when you are the most attractive to other people. Events and Adventures is the natural, organic way to meet other singles for friendship or dating. We do the work so you can just sign up, show up, and have a great time!
I joined this group last year and quickly found that not only was it a horrible waste of money... try about $100/month plus you have to pay for any activities you participate it... only to find that it was made up of some of the oddest/creepiest individuals I have ever met. They make you sign at least a year long contract and do not let you test it out before hand.
I was so desperate to get out of this group that I paid a ton of money to get out of it (it saved me about 40%) in the long run. These people do not care about you or the fact that you're uncomfortable... the bottom line is that they are after your money. I have nothing to gain from writing this review, I just want to watch out for other people, because I wish somebody would have warned me from this group and saved me a couple of grand. : (
What a great organization! I have learned so much about the city and have done some many cool things and met so many amazing people. I
So much fun!! Met a lot of awesome new people and the events are great. I love having something to do every night im free. I have tried lots of new things that never in a million years I thought I would! Highly reccomend if you are just looking to get out and have a good time.
I've already met so many fantastic people and I look forward to each event and what it has in store! Every event is different and I'm discovering new places and things that I love because of the club! So fun!
Don – E&A has got to be one of the Twin Cities
horrible!! – Down a long hall to a cheap office with plastic chairs, low ceilings and dusty lights. Offered tap water in a paper cup. Met by a young woman who peppered me with questions about my relationship history and mental health. I repeatedly explained that I was there to get information only. She was unable to provide prices or examples of any local activities, only the generic model's photos seen in ads. She told me she could not tell me details for fear I would show up uninvited. I asked to speak with her supervisor. When she left the room I picked up a paper left in front of me on the table. It appeared to be an information sheet for clients. When she returned she began yelling that I was not supposed to look at that, and that I did not have the "qualities" they were looking for.
I found the staff rude, the secrecy suspect, and the entire experience humiliating. I wouldn't attend one of their functions if they payed me.
Events & Adventures is a SCAM – E&A is a scam, and I don't believe one positive review that has been written on the City Search site. Based on all the other negative reviews, the positive ones must have been written by E&A! The sales people are extremely high pressure, not forthcoming, and even negotiated down from the $2K price when I wouldn't immediately sign on the dotted line. Their sales tactics are unethical. Know your rights. In MO everyone has up to 3 days to cancel a contract. The concept sounds fantastic. But like anything else if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Unless you can afford to lose $2K plus, save your money!
I'm having a ball – well, i jouind a few months ago and was a bit scared because i have been hanging out with my friends that i've had for the past 5 years since I left California. Heres the kicker...I've been sitting on a happy hour stool talking about all the things we should do. Follow me on this one...We never did anything.hehe.i can't even tell you how many years my best girlfriend and i signed up for tennis lessons and din't do it. Golf was the same. needless to say I heard about the club from my neighbor who a membe a while back and he had a ball. Needless to say, I decided to do it and have played golf and tennis! Is anyone proud of me besides me????anyone?I would give another half star.
That is what one of my best friends--one of my best friends who is married--said to me. We were chatting about our weekends and plans for the upcoming week. After she heard my plans, she said, "You do the most INTERESTING things!" I said, "It's all with Events & Adventures." She was happy for me and envious all at the same time.
Before I joined the club, all but one of my friends were married. Have you noticed? Married friends aren't available to go out with you every weekend.
Events & Adventures has been great. Now I go out and do fun things (without having to call 10 people to find ONE who is up for it). I've got some of my best friends from the club--people to go out with on the weekends. (Yea!) When you're out and about, you're bound to meet a great guy--and a more interesting guy, too. I'm just not that intrigued by a guy I meet in a nightclub whose social life consists of tipping a beer bottle. Give me the guy that is rock climbing and salsa dancing or whatev any day.
It's been a win-win-win. You establish great friendships, you meet great people to date, you have a good time doing "interesting" things, as my friend Rachel would say.
