Women On Our Own Loves to Dine Out

Members of Women On Our Own enjoy a delightful evening and dinner at The Vistas of the SaddleBrooke clubhouse.

Just like the Cyndi Lauper song “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” each month Women On Our Own (WOOO) celebrates SaddleBrooke life with a wide variety of opportunities, events, and gatherings. Just one of many options is a monthly “2nd Saturday” dinner out at one of the “Brookes,” the “Ranches,” or Catalina eateries. This past month, WOOO members dined at The Vistas at SaddleBrooke One. On a rotating basis, this group also dines at the MountainView Bar and Grill, The Preserve clubhouse, the Ranch House Brewery and Grill at the SaddleBrooke Ranch, and other venues in Catalina.

But wait! There is so much more to Women On Our Own. If you are into playing games, dining in Greater Tucson, movies, day trips, book clubs, pickleball, or hiking, WOOO has a place for you! What a great way to make new friends and experience new places and opportunities.

If you enjoy playing games, there are so many choices. There’s bridge, Hand and Foot, Mexican Train, Mah Jongg, trivia, and even a Game Night with multiple games. Best yet, if WOOO hasn’t covered all the games, members can start a new group to play their favorite!

Do you to like to gather with friends to eat? In addition to the monthly 2nd Saturday in SaddleBrooke, a Dine Around offers a wide range of Tucson-area dining experiences. There is also an Ethnic Dine Out for those who like to try foods from a variety of countries. Also, there are monthly themed potlucks, holiday dinners, and wine tastings. There is something for every foodie, and if WOOO has missed a favorite category, members can start a new group!

Do you love day trips, book clubs, and movies? Last year, WOOO visited the Gem Show, the Tucson Rodeo, and Tombstone for just some of our day trips. We not only went to see movies, we went out to eat afterwards. Our Book Club enjoys sharing the joys of reading from member-chosen books.

For many off-campus activities, WOOO members share rides. When appropriate, carpools are set up so we can enjoy riding together. We generally meet at a SaddleBrooke specific location, making sure everyone has a ride, and off we go for fun and friendship.

WOOO welcomes nonmember women to attend our events as a guest on a space-available basis. Also, women who are residents of SaddleBrooke and find themselves as the full-time caregiver to a profoundly ill partner/spouse are welcome to reach out to WOOO for the friendship and support we offer. Please contact Dee Berisha at 520-906-2626 for further details.

Whether you are looking for new friends, new experiences, fun, or trying to figure out how to navigate the world while flying solo, WOOO has a place for you! To join WOOO or obtain more information, contact Dee Berisha at 520-906-2626.
