It’s never easy to meet people and that’s particularly true when you’re an adult. I struggle with it all the time. I do not know my neighbors. None of them introduced themselves to me when I moved in, and they all seem scary. It’s even harder to make friends with your neighbors when there’s a pandemic happening and folks are barely leaving the house. But one couple found a unique way to meet their new neighbors, and all it took was a little free booze.
Amanda and Thomas Evans moved to a new city in Florida a few weeks before the pandemic hit, so it was hard for them to become friendly with their new neighbors. Amanda says they met a couple while walking their rescue dog around the neighborhood but that’s about it. She notes, “Typically, you would bring people cookies or pie or invite them over for dinner, but we weren’t sure about how people were feeling.”
So, without being able to the normal neighborly things, the couple came up with a plan to reach out. They put up flyers in the neighborhood inviting folks to their driveway for free drinks. “Hi, we’re new to the neighborhood and would like to meet our lovely neighbors,” it read. “We will be in our driveway with drinks, ready to meet any neighbors who would like to stop by. We can’t wait to meet you.”
They also put a sign up in their driveway, and apparently, it worked like a charm, and they now have a lot of new friends. As Anthony shares, “free beer is a pretty easy way to get people to show up.”
