Tag Archives: The Welcoming Committee


Are you looking to connect with a friendly group?  Want to mix things up and make more friends who are open to going out, trying new places and possibly planning a weekend or two away? Boston’s very own The Welcoming Committee (TWC) has now expanded into Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. This Friday, TWC, will host their monthly, Guerrilla Queer Bar (GQB) event, where they take over a traditionally straight venue and fill it with members looking to have fun and share a few laughs.

Like The Welcoming Committee’s Facebook Page to be among the first to learn where this Friday’s Guerrilla Queer Bar will take place in Boston, Philly and Washington, D.C.

TWC is coming to D.C.

Guys DrinkingReaders of this blog may be familiar with The Welcoming Committee, a LGBT social group, that organize fun evening out and ‘take-overs’ in and around Boston.  The group is mostly comprised of 20-30 somethings although those of us in the 40+ crowd have been known to also crash social events they have organized.  TWC (for short) recently expanded into Philadelphia and will soon be coming to Washington D.C.

If you happen to live in the D.C. area and read this blog, would you mind leaving a comment with a way for me to get in touch with you? I’d like to connect The Welcoming Committee with some of my readers in the area.

TWC’s Newbie Party is tonight in Harvard Square

TWCAre you new to Boston or just in need of meeting some new people?  The Welcoming Committee is hosting their Newbie Party tonight from 6:30 to 9 pm at The Beat Hotel (13 Brattle St., Cambridge) in Harvard Square.  By the way, The Beat Hotel is a bar – not a hotel.  It is The Welcoming Committee not the come and sleep with me committee :-)

These regularly hosted gatherings give you a chance to learn more about The Welcoming Committee, the activities they organize in and around Boston as well as a chance to socialize and connect with a group of fun and friendly people.  Curious but shy? Shoot me a note in the comments section, and I can tell you more about the group and tonight’s Newbie Party.
