Friars know how to have a good time...and we do it a lot!

Social events such as "meet and eats," pub crawls, Ravinia outings, picnics, concerts, movies and ball games are always popular.


Follow Friars' Facebook page to see photos and RSVP for events. Watch your email for new events. Join us at a one of our social twice-monthly meetings (1st and 3rd Mondays) at Ricochet's (4644 N. Lincoln, Chicago) and see what we're all about.


You'll learn about a great ski and social club and make some new friends! If skiing, socializing, and summer-fun things are your faves, then joining the Friars is the right thing for you!

Here's what's coming up!

Sunday, July 12: Picnic CANCELLED


Sunday, August 9: Meet 'n Eat at Galvin's Irish Pub

4 p.m. -- staying hopeful that we can do this in person!

5901 W. Lawrence Ave, Chicago.

A few blocks west of Milwaukee Avenue and a little west of the Kennedy Expressway.

RSVP to Eldeen Carpenter

Plan the next social event and we'll treat you like royalty!


It doesn't take much to please a Friar. But we do love volunteers--we're all volunteers. And we know you have good ideas and varied interests. Share your ideas with us and let's go do something fun!
