An Idiot's (Me) Guide to Making Friends Outside of Bars

Postby anishkjain » Sun, 29 Mar 2009 6:48 pm

This Crazy Notion...
That I'm not the only one who gets a little jaded of meeting people in bars. Drinking and dancing is fun, but variety is the spice of life. The usual haunts of CQ, Club Street, Mimolette, KM8, etc. can get a little bland. Something different is exactly what's needed to refresh the palate! Men/Women/Young/Old/Single/Married/Straight/Gay; all are welcome.

A Little About Me:
I've been in SG for about 7 months now and moved here from NYC. And yes, as cliche as it sounds from NYC, I work in financial services. Oh, and 25/m/USA/UK.

Outing Ideas
Classic Options:

1) Drinks
2) Dinner (I'm vegetarian... so steak houses and Japanese food are out)

Less-Classic Options
1) Paintball (10 person minimum, ~$60/head)
2) Kickball Game
3) Wine Tasting Event
4) Cooking Class (Holland V or Raffles Hotel)
5) Underbelly of Singapore Tour (This would be HILARIOUS)
6) X-Box Tournament (I suck at Halo 3, but at least I got 4 controllers)
7) LAN gaming (getting beat up on by Singapore High Schoolers... sweet)
8) Hot Yoga Class (
9) Nature Hike/Kayaking
10) Going to see a concert with a bunch or new, random friends
11) Bike Rides on East Coast
12) BBQs (At someone's condo or rent a villa on the East Coast)
13) Tennis Doubles
14) Basketball Game

And I'm sure the list goes on!

Just a few ideas.

If anyone's interested, shoot me an email. If I get a few responses, I'll email everyone and we can start something.
