What are some clubs / societies I might be interested in?

I recently plopped down some cash and joined the e-chapter of a niche psychology-related society and have really enjoyed the webinars and opportunities to network with like-minded people. What are some other clubs or societies in which I might be interested? Reasonable membership fees are OK; details inside. [more inside]

Shared Interest + Consistent Meetings = New Friends?

I want to join a committee, board, or club, and have a regular reason to meet folks a couple times a month to some specific end. Ideally, the other people in the group would be of both genders, and some would be in their late 30s or 40s. I live in Brooklyn. What’s available to me that I don’t already know about? [more inside]

how to find or create women-only gatherings, groups, clubs, and meetups?

Help me understand civic associations/organizations in the US

I'm interested in joining a civic association (like Lions Club or Rotary or Kiwanis or Junior League), but I don't know anything about these organizations, whether I would actually enjoy belonging, or whether they would want me to join. Can you tell me about the characters of the various clubs, any personal experiences working with them, upsides, downsides, membership selection processes? [more inside]

Hollywood culture

My nephew is fresh out of film school and just moved to Hollywood. I'd like to get him a membership to a museum, theater, or some other cultural institution / organisation. What are some cool places in that area a bright, nerdy 20-something might want to visit regularly? (does not necessarily have to be film related)

When a group's dynamics get stale -- Give up? Or Rekindle?

About a year ago I joined a group that meets several times a month about spiritual topics. I was warmly welcomed and found great comfort in the group. However now, I am beginning to feel like the group is pretty much the same every meeting. I know Person X will talk about Thing X; Person Y will bring up Anecdote Y; etc. Should I quit? There's a twist... [more inside]

Not that kind of gentlemen's club

I'm in NYC and am interested in traditional gentlemen's clubs, like the University Club and The Knickerbocker. Is there an accessible version of this kind of club? Something with a library and bar and maybe food? I'm middle class and don't have an especially high-flying job and don't have any amazing social connections in the city, so it would have to be a straight-forward application process. Does anything like this exist or would it defeat the point of these clubs if it did exist?

Dance music in Cleveland?

We're considering a move to the Cleveland area, and one of the deciding factors for me is going to be the quality of the local dance music scene. But that leads me to ask: what's the deal with the local dance music scene? Does one exist? I've found a couple of online forums but they seem to be moribund. So what's up, Cleveland? Anyone dancing in converted warehouses until the sun comes up? Are there gigs to be found for dance DJs here?

Help for a wayward gay?

Where does a lonely girl go to dance, safely?
