What To Expect

How does this work?

We host events to help people make new friends. Our premise is simple: you show up with an open mind and a willingness to talk to people. We'll take care of the rest.

Our monthly events are usually free; sometimes there's a small charge related to the activity or venue. Register for the event, show up, start talking to people.

What's this I hear about themes?

Yep, our events have themes. Something to get people talking. When you come to an event up, we'll give you a name tag where you'll put your answer to the night's theme. Boom! Instant ice-breaker.

But how does BtB help me make friends?

We create a crucible for friend-making by regularly bringing together fun, interesting people at venues across the Twin Cities. You talk to people - at one event or over the course of a few - and when you find someone you'd like to hang out with, invite them to do something. Something specific. As in, pull out your phone and schedule something. Or get their contact information so you can follow up later. Whatever works for you. Just do it.

About BtB

The right kind of Minnesota Nice.

Break the Bubble was created to solve a big problem: How do you make new friends in the Twin Cities? Whether you just moved here or have lived here your whole life, it can be challenging to make friends. Some call it "Minnesota Nice" while others say "Minnesotans will give you directions anywhere, except to their lake cabin." No matter how you say it, making friends here is hard. We're changing that.

Purely social.

We exist to help you meet new people and make friends.We're not a professional networking organization and we're not a singles group. (But if people meet at a BtB event and end up dating or finding a job opportunity, all the better.) So it's okay to invite someone you meet at a BtB event to do something - no one's going to think you're asking them out on a date!

So this is a singles event? 

Nope. It's not for professional networking either. It really is for making friends. You can leave the pick-up lines and elevator speeches at home. Cool, huh?

“My friend and I were pleasantly surprised when stumbled upon a Break the Bubble event happening at 612Brew. The fun name-tag game helped break the ice and turned what was originally a two-person hangout into a bar-wide conversation. ”
