Events and Adventures is a social club for singles. We run 30-50 events each month in the Phoenix area, from hiking and sailing to house parties and world travel. No photo-dates - no match making. We believe that when you relax and have fun, that is when you are the most attractive to other people. Events and Adventures is the natural, organic way to meet other singles for friendship or dating. We do the work so you can just sign up, show up, and have a great time!
I can't recommend it. The events are disorganized the event planner does not have a clue and only plans events that are convenient to her and her husband and she complains constantly about having to do any work and bad mouths the members. The lack of integrity with this business is ridiculous. The cost is very expensive, you think you are getting interesting events when you sign on but the calendar is full of stuff that requires as little effort as possible and the members are asked to host the events so that the employees don't have to work. There is absolutely no interest in member satisfaction and members are often ordered to keep issues to themselves and threatened with lawsuits if they complain. Doug E Fresh is way out of line when it comes to the members though. The members are fabulous and fun, but there are way too many other options out there to get out and meet people and you won't feel like you were mugged when they raid your checking account every month and give almost nothing in return.
As a current member and a former host for events and adventures I want to warn people who are thinking about joining how poorly run this organization is and the lies that they tell you to trick you into joining. I have overlooked the lies they told me because I wanted to make the best of it. They claim to have over 1000 members when the actual numbers are around 250 and the active members are probably around 100. They are way overpriced and rumor has it the price is going up. That just shows how out of touch Mark is. Another example of Mark not caring about the members is volleyball. They have volleyball almost every week a lot of the members complain that its too much, but we are told that Mark wants it. The last straw for me was when the owner Mark demoted the event coordinator. He did a great job and his concerns were for the members. Mark said that he was demoted because the two big member parties (Halloween and New Year's Eve) were awful. When I put a poll on Facebook to find out from the other members if they thought the parties were awful. There was only 1 vote for awful and that was from Mark himself, every other vote said it was good or great. Mark then told him to have me take the poll down or he would lose his job.
I've had fun so far! I'm meeting cool people, getting out more, it's been great for me!
A great way to meet quality people in a safe environment. I can't say enough about the club.... I'm finally doing things instead of talking about it!
The best social club in Phoenix!!!!! – I joined Events and Adventures 6 1/2 months ago after putting it off for about a year! Each time I heard the radio ads I thought...I want to join!!! But, I didn't work up the nerve to call until around December 2010 and I AM SO GLAD I JOINED! I have been having THE TIME OF MY LIFE. The group is fun and dynamic, the events are adventurous and so, so fun! I thought it would be a bunch of chumps, but it is a huge group of local, single, pre-screened professionals who are looking to meet other quality singles and to get out of the house to be active and do the things we all love to do. I would recommend this club to anyone who is looking to meet quality, local singles in a safe and natural environment. I even met an amazing guy in the club so who knows what the future holds!!!
Great Place to Meet People – So I wanted to meet people face to face instead of meeting online. I felt that it was more personal and I could get a better feel for who the person is and what they are truly like. I also like the fact every person who comes to the place have to be screened and admitted in. It isn't everyone just come on down. I have fun at every event I attend because they are events I want to be at and the people at the events are nice as well. If you are looking to meet others and are sick of the internet and the pitfalls it brings go to Events and Adventures. You will be very happy you did
Review Events and Adventures – Doug E. Fresh has it wrong his review does not pertain to EventsandAdventures neither the club nor the Phoenix members allow conduct so unbecoming as he describes. Further, his characterization as members being misfits and social outcasts is uncalled for and inaccurate at the least. I do not know why reviews such as his are allowed to be published. Shame on him and citysearch for lacking a better screening process.
One thing I can attest to as far as EventsandAdventures is that each and every human with a membership has been thru a rigorous screening process. I am wondering to myself if that reviewer is angry because he did not make the cut?? For the record this is an upstanding group of individuals that make up the entirety of the memberships I have found nothing that even remotely resembles actions such as Doug E. describes taking place. Quite the contrary...everyone is very self-respecting and also respectful of others.
And, these are healthy and attractive people frankly I am astounded by how wrong that reviewer is in his characterization. Thank God they weed folks like him out during enrollment. If he had made it to member then i might be inclined to agree that there were losers in the shadows...I assure you there is not and he is the type I feel fortunate I can pay to avoid.
Some Facts – This Club is actually Adventures 2000 under a different name.
Take no offense but if you are a nerd, misfit, introvert, socially awkward adult, a social outcast, desperately lonely, etc. then this organization is for you! You will never see one member who looks remotely close to the smiling, good looking, healthy adult professionals in the photos on their website. I saw and met awkward, freaky humans that I had no idea actually existed in our society! I also witnessed some of the most bizarre and unhealthily adult behaviors that I have ever seen in my 40 years of life, or at least since my high school days! Women being stalked and cut off from the herd (group) to be pressured by desperate horny males, members meeting on a bus ride to an event and making out on the bus like in high school, extra martial affairs, Sodom and Gomorra activity, etc.
To join you are taken into a room with the door closed and subjected to pressure sales tactics like they do at car dealerships when you buy a car. Even worse, they play upon your human desires and emotions for the potential for a healthy adult relationship with a member of the opposite sex, or whatever you may be looking for. You will be told whatever you want to hear.
If this review is "music to your ears" then by all means join up! You will fit right in and have a great time. If you are a good looking, smiling, healthy adult professional like in the photos on their website then run for your life! Join match dot com or something where you are in control!
You are lying. Adventures 2000 is not the same as Events And Adventures, they are completely separate companies that have nothing to do with one another other. Your description might fit Adventures 2000, but Events and Adventures is EXCLUSIVELY FOR SINGLES (extra marital affair impossible.). Events and Adventures has around 20,000 members. Sounds like you had issues with Adventures 2000. Take it up with them - and get your facts straight next time.
April's Events & Adventures Review – Hank and I both joined Events & Adventures in early 2004. We first met at a group theater event which was also happened to be one of the first experiences either of us had with Events & Adventures. Initially, we were paired with different people, including my girlfriend, who had attended the event with me, showing an initial interest in Hank. Over the next couple of years, Hank and I attended many of the same events. We’d gotten to know one another, did a bit of harmless flirting, a lot of laughing at life in general and marveling at how we kept finding the wrong people, but also remaining confident the right one was out there. It never failed – we’d get an invitation from Events & Adventures, review the details and always managed to run into each other along the way.
One night, during a Events & Adventures outing at the Hard Rock Café, and with both of us in attendance alone, I looked at Hank across the bar, and I guess for the first time, I saw him as something more than a friend. I pointed him out to an acquaintance and said, “That’s the man I’m going to marry”. From there, it was just a matter of time before I could ask him why, after all this time, he’d never asked me out. Minutes later, we’d made a date for the very next night and have been inseparable since. Two years later, we were married; ironically, almost to the day! I’m proud to provide this Events & Adventures review and even more proud to call Hank my husband!
