Horrible Waste of Time & Money - Avoid Urban Outings – Wow - what a huge waste of time & money!
I echo other reviewers - you have NO idea who is in this club before you join - and for good reason - it's filled with social retards who live with their mothers. The events are poorly run - and it's NOT the fault of the "group leaders", it's just that the events are boring recycled Time Out suggestions, are way too expensive, are ineffecient, and the promises of the high-pressure sales folks are just NOT met. Customer service is non-existent, and it's VERY expensive to join (and it's not over with the huge initiation fee - they bill you monthly as well!).
Save your money, join another club - something for a lot less money - or do volunteer work of some sort if you want to meet people. Urban Outings is horrid.
Avoid it! They're just after your money... – Ask yourself a question --> Would you join a group that does any of the following:
- Doesn't allow or want you to meet other members or attend events before joining
- Uses high pressure sales tactics
- Requires long term contracts with large up-front fees in addition to monthly and event fees
- Charges you fines if you're late or are unable to attend events
- Recycles the 'Around Town' section from TimeOut and charges you cost + 50%
- Has a large number of socially retarded losers and trolls as members
- Has poor customer service and a poorly designed, rarely updated website
- Is just interested in the fees you pay.
Learn from my mistake and do yourself a favor: Pass on Urban Outings. Your social life and your wallet will thank you.
A Great Way to Meet Gay Men – Its refreshing to attend cooking, Yankees games, and galleries with fun gay professionals who have interests, can hold a conversation, and are into more than online hookups and bars. I've made quality friends at Urban Outings. The members are approachable. I love the convenience of registering for events online the details automatically emailed to me. I dont think Urban Outings is too expensive. I spend more on dinner at a restaurant than fees for a whole month of Urban Outings, and I meet more quality men and have many choices for my social life!
A Complete Waste of Money!!! – They high pressure sales tactics to sell you an extremely expensive membership which covers next to nothing. You have to pay to attend each events in addition to the membership fee as well, as pay for meals, etc. They don't give you afree pass to check an event out before you join. The website used to sign-up for events is not user friendly. You cannot see who is attending an event until you sign up for the event.
This is a pretty pathetic attempt to justify salaries for overpaid event planners for what most would consider normal everyday things like brunch or bowling or the movies.
Editorial Review – Social club for gay men with more than 30 events planned monthly including cultural and athletic events, parties, trips, more.
