Singles Mingles has events twice or more per month with coffee, lunch or dinner in various restaurants in the New Bern area. We also have wine and appetizer parties or a coffee in the home of a member that would like to open their home up to our group. We also carpool and venture out on a day trip sightseeing something in our area. Singles Mingles is a singles-only group that meets to socialize, make friendships, and have great food and conversation, but is not a dating service.

To Attend:

Interested members will be emailed details of a scheduled activity several weeks in advance. Simply respond to the email if you will be attending. An RSVP is required as space is limited. If your plans change after indicating you will attend, please email the activity leader to inform them you will not attend. To be added to the group's email list, sign up at a general meeting or email the group leader.

Past Singles Mingles Activities

In November 2018, the Singles Mingles Group met at Rita M's house for appetizers. 15 attended for great food, drink and conversation.

In April 2015, the Singles Mingles Group went to lunch at Spice Bouquet. 16 attended and a great time was had by all!

Upcoming Activities

With Fall approaching, here are four Singles Mingles events for October-ish.
7pm Wednesday, September 29th
901B Pollock St, New Bern
Think you know music? Come prove it with our take on a traditional game! We play 30 seconds of a song, you mark the song title off on your game sheet! First three rounds, the first person to come up with a winning sheet wins a prize from the venue. For the final round, the jackpot is a blackout game, and is worth $100-$250!!
So what are you waiting for? Bring your friends and come dance, sing, and rock out to 30 Second Rocks!!
Sunday Brunch, Brad May's house
11am Sunday, October 24th
109 Emmen Rd, New Bern (in Taberna)
Bring yourself and a brunch item to share. Brad will provide coffee, tea, plates, utensils, and glasses.  A good time to get together and socialize!
6pm Friday, October 29th
206 W Corbett Ave, Swansboro
This is a new upscale Italian restaurant in Swansboro that has private rooms for large parties. Let me know if you want to carpool and if you can drive.
Leave New Bern 9am Saturday, November 6th
240 Park Entrance Rd, Seven Springs, NC
(meet in parking lot behind Belk, 3100 Dr. M.L.K. Jr Blvd, New Bern)
"Follow the cliffs' edge for lovely views of the river below. A path bordered by a rail fence leads along the riverbank. Oaks, dogwoods and other trees line the path, often cloaking views of the river with a veil of Spanish moss."
Singles Mingles did a walk at this park two years ago.  There are all levels of trails, the shortest being the "350 yard trail"  (that's 0.2 miles). These are pretty trails, most covered in pea gravel, and very well marked.  There really are 90 foot cliffs overlooking the Neuse River.
We will carpool from the parking lot behind Belk; the park is a one hour drive from there. After going through the visitor center, we will figure out where everybody wants to hike and set up car shuttles so everybody doesn't need to walk the same distance. There are options to stop in Kinston after.
Please reply for each event if you want to attend (use the "Reply" button on your browser so all the responses stay together at my end).  Look forward to seeing everybody!
