I'm Sarah Sociables and I'm an event hoarder.
Event hoarder. I hoard cool events. Well I used to, now that I’ve grown up a bit I’ve learned to share them with others. Like yourself. You see, I’ve always been excited about all that Calgary has to offer. THERE ARE SO MANY FUN COOL THANGS HAPPENING EVERY DAY.
Sarah Sociables is who I became when I found my community of people who get excited about Calgary fun too. (That brings a tear to my eye just saying that, I luv you guys!)
This is the place for 30ish-somethings Calgarians looking for fun stuff to do.
You’re too old for the club (sorry to break it to you) but you’re not dead yet either. Let’s line up a Friday night you're excited for. Whether you want to chillax at a pub with a frosty cold pint, wear a stunning dress at a fancy gala, or experiment with speed-dating at a speakeasy I’ll will show you the way my friend.
Because YOUR SOCIAL LIFE IS YOUR LIFE. And I don’t mean that in like a “being popular is everything” sense, I mean that all the other parts of your life are adulting.
You commute. You clean your car. You pay bills. You run errands. You make phone calls. Repeat.
Is this it?
Jeeze I hope not.
You also need to make space to LIVE.
Think about what makes memories: spending time with people you love and who you enjoy being with.
More of that, please!
If you know me, you'll know my favorite thing is sharing social activities happening in Calgary. It makes me so happy that this resonates with others.
This is extra special to me because Best of Calgary is a “people’s choice” award. Remember that scene in The Mask where Jim Carrey holds up the trophy statue "You LOOOOOVE MEEE! YOU REALLLY LOVE ME!"
This was my Jim Carrey moment.
I think you are mistaking me for a Kardashian, but I appreciate the comparison. And while I wouldn’t call myself “famous” I’ve gathered a good-sized community of local peeps who are interested in the same things I am. This is wonderful.
New restaurant! COOL!! Fun event! AMAZING!
Let’s all be excited about it together.
Maybe I’ll see you there?
First of all, I feel ya. When I first moved to Calgary I was so desperate for friends I put an ad on Kijiji looking for females to socialize with on weekends.
(Don’t tell anyone that story.)
Second of all, when all my friends started getting married and popping out babies they fell out of the social scene leaving me high and dry and friendless AGAIN!
What I’m telling you is, it’s okay.
I've been there and I figured it out and so can you.
Your social life isn't dead. Trust me, you're waaaaay too young and cool for that. I throw party events and you definitely need to check one out or multiples (they have different themes). Find your peeps! And just relax and have a good time.
Your worries about friendlessness will fade into the night air as you’re out on the town with a hot pile of awesome people living it up.
If you have a reliable friend group (a miracle really!) and you want to hear about adult-oriented fun cool things happenin’ you need to check out YYC Sociables.
If you don’t have a reliable friend group (maybe you’re new to town, maybe your friends just suck, maybe they are all grown up and you’re just not there yet) then my fun, friend-making events are perfect for you.
So come. See. Get excited. Meet people. Drink a beer. Come to another event. Be my friend. Make a friend. Relax. Do it again. I’ve literally just solved all your social life problems.
Get out to the best places
A weekly digest of Calgary’s coolest happenings. It lands in your inbox every Sunday with links to all of the upcoming events that you actually want to go to. This curated list (made by a real life 30-something who likes to go out in Calgary a.k.a. moi) is not available anywhere else.
Make new friends at awesome places
Get the night out on the town you deserve. Make some memories and come home with some hilarious stories. And if you're worried about showing up alone, it's okay because people are actually encouraged come alone to these events. So no, you won’t be the lone weirdo in the corner pretending to send a text. Trust me, that is not how MY events go. (I would be personally offended if that was the hell I was sending you into.)
