Creating a Phenomenon

Merriam Webster Dictionary defines Phenomenon as "An event that can be observed and that typically is unusual or difficult to understand or explain fully."

How does the word Phenomenon pertain to us? Well, we are members of a group that partakes in events that are meant to meet people, have interesting conversations, make connections, and to have fun. The end result of these social events, hopefully, is an experience that satisfies one of two human primal instincts. One is the human instinct to be loved and accepted. The other primal instinct would be fear of rejection.

Just Say Hi

Hi guys,

I want to do a quick note to start a conversation about our group, pertaining to meeting people and having fun during the process. Actually, this is a prologue to another message called "Creating a Phenomenon" that I plan to blog in the next couple weeks.

As many of our members know, ones that have been to at least one of our events, we are not your typical social group. People are amazed, intrigued, pleasantly surprised at how social and fun our group is. Even the most social person, I included, have butterflies meeting new people. The initial fear, however, is quickly supplanted by ease as people soon realized everyone is friendly. Soon enough, you'll be talking, smiling, laughing.

In my last blog, I wrote about why we changed our name to MPCEvents. Well the immediate result of that was when we did our first three events in New York City, August 22nd, 23rd and 24th. Let me tell you on my experience travelling to New York to do those three events.

You may have noticed that we have a new website and a new logo. Or you may have not. The logo still has the same colors and still have some of the initials. The new domain name though very different in print visually seems familiar. After all MPC stands for Meet People Chicago. This seamless transition was on purpose of course. 

If you have ever lived in Chicago for more than a few months, one thing you know you need to do before you move out of town is to enjoy a day (or night) in one of Chicago's best rooftops. This is because Chicago, as we locals like to say, has two seasons: Winter and Construction. Laughs aside, our summer is woefully short. We may have three months of good weather and that's it. And until recently, Chicago wasn't known for rooftop bars. In fact it's only been in the last few years that there's been a thankful proliferation of rooftop venues. And now (smiles) there are many good ones to choose from. But since we can't choose them all, we'll pick our favorite rooftop bars in the heart of Chicago nightlife, River North. Sit back, relax, and see (and read) where your next outing will be in the coming summer months!

  • "MPC is a fantastic social group. I was brand new to Chicago in June (knowing all of 2-3 people), and decided to give it a try after being here for five days. The people are friendly, fun and it's pretty easy to just bounce around meeting new people. I HIGHLY recommend you give this group a try if you're on the fence. Peter does a fantastic job organizing, and it's always good to get out and explore/drink in new areas of Chicago with people just looking to have a good time."
