Folks. This is a scam. Check out the BBB complaints & rating before signing up. Don't believe fake glowing reviews which are all written in similar language/phrasing. Read the reviews! If you signed up, read the cancellation terms carefully. I believe you must send a certified letter within 72 hours of signing your contract. Calls will not do the trick. Do NOT believe anything you are told by the sales reps. This is a predatory business.
I joined a few months ago and I'm having a blast! Tons of cool people and activities every day of the week. I could literally do something every day with this group if I wanted to. Yes it's expensive, but I was so tired of sitting at home and letting life go by. Now I have plans all the time and I've met some great friends! I would recommend E & A to anyone. Give it a chance you'll love it!!
Events and Adventures has me spoiled rotten. They have something going on every day and the other members are cool and laid back. If I had to go back to making my own plans every time I wanted to go out and do something I don't think I would get out half as much. They are the best!
I went out to the Sushi Mingle at Soma on Washington last night and I had a blast with all the members! E&A had gotten Soma to extend their happy hour for us which just made it that much more fun! :) The company was great and good conversation all around. If you are new to town (like I am) this is a great place to meet awesome people while doing cool things!
I had a great time last night. For this to be my first event at trivia nite, the members are very friendly. I can't wait to see everyone again and get away from being alone in front of the TV.
I love camping but not by myself! Love the camping trips/river floats. I have odd days off so when I'm off on a Tuesday or Wednesday there are a bunch of people I can still hang out with. I don't have to setup an evite 4 weeks out just to get 6 people to play volleyball. E&A plays every week!
I just moved to Houston last year and when you are with E&A you just don't get that homesick or lonely feeling. E&A is a life improving step. It's not free but like someone wrote on here, quality is never free.
I originally joined E&A on a one year membership then renewed with a lifetime. It has been wonderful for me. Like many shy people, I just won't go/do by myself. With E&A, I'm always with a group of friends. Now I feel confident to try new things from a new eatery to a new zip line place. E&A is all about meeting people while not a dating/hookup group. That way you make a lot of new friends both male and female without all of those dating pressures. Even better, E&A folks are warm and open. You'll meet a lot of really cool people. Will you meet that special someone? Can't say, but I can tell you about those that did!
When I ask other members to describe the E&A experience, the words I hear most often are: 'safe' and 'comfortable'.
I especially like the new things. Who knew that polo is a really cool game to watch and makes for an inexpensive pleasurable afternoon!
There's an event of some sort every night. Yes, every night. No matter what you like to do, it'll be there sooner or later.
E&A is not cheap. But quality never is. I've been in a number of social/dating groups and feel like E&A is the best value out there!
I've been a member of this club for 3 years and last year around this time, renewed my membership to "lifetime" status because I enjoy it so much. I've met some amazing friends through this club and have seen several of those friends get married to someone they met in the club. I currently live with my boyfriend of 1 year, who I met through this club when I was hosting an event.
I've gotten to experience so many fun activities through this club -- sky diving, zip lining, a day sailing in Kemah (someone else sailed the boat, I just enjoyed the breeze and the ocean and conversation), trampoline dodge ball, scuba diving, hang gliding, horse back riding, ultimate frisbee. Without Events & Adventures, I don't know if I ever would have gotten to do these things!
I won't lie - the club is very expensive to join but I feel it's well worth it. You really do get out of it what you put into it -- go to events, try to meet people, be open to new experiences. You really never know who you'll meet -- that special someone or a new BFF.
Bring your Lawyer when you go to sign up – Its nice to have planned events, but how much are you willing to spend. You buy a membership and here are the Rates 1 yr ~$1500 plus monthly dues at $30, 3yr ~$3000 plus $30 per month dues, lifetime $4200 with no monthly dues. Once you sign up you have 3 days to cancel or you are stuck paying them. They do not make this clear when you go to sign up. Also they do not make it clear you have to pay monthly dues for the 1yr and 3yr memberships which increase the membership costs by $360 per year.
I would recommend using meetup through facebook, going to church. At least you don't have to pay anything for those. E&A makes you feel like you are part of some elite club, but i feel stupid for paying them so much money. This was a learning experience for me. READ BEFORE YOU SIGN!!!
Not What It's Cracked Up To Be! – Yes, it is over-priced. What you may want to know though is......there are equal and even better offerings from other organized social clubs in town that are not as costly. There has been a change in Event Coordinators and I was hopeful there would be some different events. It seems to be a repeat of the same events and venues. They tend to be game nights/events at the club house, games in the park, hikes, happy hours with the occasional sports and arts events. The male to female ratio is anywhere from 1 male to 3 females or more. Great for the guys! The 40 plus crowd that they will lead you to believe is in equal proportion to all other age groups is not. The male to female ratio becomes even more disparate in this age group. The sales girl used the term "professional" ad nausuem in her sale pitch. You may want them to expound more on their definition of "professional" to see if it aligns with your definition. I joined after moving to Houston last year to meet people and I had tried many other social venues before joining. This has been a very disappointing venture. I felt with the price I was paying I would meet people with similar interests. There have been a few; however, I've met more people in other organized social clubs (HSS, BCO, etc.) that were professionals and had similar interests.
