Chicago is a large city. It has millions of drinking age men and women. Dozens of neighborhoods with thousands of bars, clubs and restaurants. Meet People Chicago is in a unique position. We have been to hundreds of locations with thousands of our members. And with each event, we experience the good, the bad and the ugly. Besides our superhosts' experiences, we get immediate feedback from our members.

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.

So you’re new to Chicago, starting to settle in your new home and neighborhood. You’re getting a feeling for what life will be like in Chicago; there’s so much to do, isn’t there? Unfortunately, doing all of these things are sometimes not within our means…but they can be. Simple things like planning a budget, keeping track of your expenses and saving are pieces of advice we hear all the time but don’t like to think about. I know I definitely don’t like having to worry about keeping within a budget. Sometimes I wish I could be a spending crazy savage, throwing my money at life’s most absurd luxuries like suit pajamas, but then realize that it could be better spent elsewhere. In this section, we’ll go over your finances as they relate to settling down in Chicago and tips to save some money. Let’s dive in.

  • "MPC is a fantastic social group. I was brand new to the city 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 the city with people just looking to have a good time."
