Philly Couples?

Hi Nesties! My husband and I both moved to Philly for our jobs. Unfortunately, most of the people that work for our companies are a lot older than us.  We're having a hard time meeting other couples/people our age to hang out with.  We aren't really into going to bars and it seems like the friends we have that are our age are unmarried and still bar flies.  Other than PSSC, does anyone know of a good way to meet some couples and make some friends?

Thanks!! :)

    Volunteering has always opened me to new friends--if you are a supporter of animal welfare, there are many rescues/shelters (ACCT, PAWS, Morris Animal Refuge) that are always in need of good people! 

    I'm also a member of our local crossfit gym and have found that the people involved in the CF community are incredibly nice and friendly.  You could also join a local running club as I know they are looking for ALL levels of runners (from speed demons to wanderers).

    Just because you are married, doesn't mean you have to stop going to bars. :)  My husband and I are beer geeks and have met people at brewery tours or special (mid-day weekend events). 

    If you can be more specific with your location, I'm sure we can help out more. 
  • meetup.com is also a good way to meet new people.
  • I feel your pain!  We have always lived in the area, but most of our friends are married with kids and no babysitters.  If you figure out a way to meet normal people, do share !
