Meet People Chicago Blog

In the last blog, I wrote about how I started the International Party. I knew people would like my story but the interest has been amazing! So far in just a few days, we already have over 500 views!
So, due to all the interest, I've decided to make a blog series about the most common questions asked. Next to "How I started International Party" the other most common question I get is "How did you start Meet People Chicago?". Let me take you back a few years...

The International Party events are the most popular events we host. Almost without fail, we average 100-140 people for every International Party we throw, and it's growing. At first glance, you might not understand why this event is so popular, but if you think about it, I think it makes sense. Chicago has one of the largest international communities in the world. At our international parties we get a sampling of the UN. Brazilians, Mexicans, Germans, Aussies, English, Italians, Koreans, Japanese, and dozens more nationalities abound! Chicago is a very diverse city, who doesn't want to meet people from around the world?
And almost every single international party at least one member would ask me "How did you start the International Party?".

So we get asked all the time, what’s the best fill-in-the-blank (burger joint, pizza place, dive bar, etc.). It happens so often, that we’ve decided to make a series out of it. We’re rolling it out with the best bars in Old Town because that’s what the majority of you have asked, and we give you what you want. As you know, I’m still a relative newbie (but I roll with a solid crew of natives), so if you think this list is missing something tell us in the comments!

Happy New Year! I hope your 2016 ended on a good note and that 2017 is off to a great start. I know it is here at Meet People Chicago. Just wait until you see what I’ve got planned for you. I’m putting together an insane schedule of events so that we can have an epic time together this year.

Before I tell you about what we have coming up this year (and it’s going to be AMAZING!), let’s take a look back at 2016 and everything that we did together.

Welcome to part deaux gents, this is what you really came for.

At this point, you know why you should invest in some nice clothes. You understand that dressing well implies many things about your character, your personal brand and your level of confidence. But what you probably don’t understand yet, is HOW to dress with some style. And so here you are.

I understand that it absolutely can suck to learn about fashion and spend hours at the mall guessing what looks good, so I aim to make this as SIMPLE as possible for you. I’m going to give you a quick lesson on style, links to different clothes essential for every man and exact outfits to wear...the whole enchilada with some extra sour cream on the side. Yum.

  • "Meet People 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."
