Women On Our Own (WOOO)

The Ethnic Dine Around group at Zemam’s Too. The group meets on the third Sunday of the month. Contact Laurie Foster for more information.

WOOO is an organization for single women living in SaddleBrooke who want to stay busy and have fun. We continue to add new activities. Our latest is the Ethnic Dine Out group, for those with adventurous palates. On the third Sunday of each month, we have dinner at one of Tucson’s many ethnic restaurants. So far, diners have been to Zemam’s Too Ethiopian restaurant and to Chef Alisah’s, which serves European and Bosnian cuisine. Another of the newer activities is the First Tuesday Movie Night. On the first Tuesday of the month, participants have dinner out and see a movie.

If you are interested in either the Ethnic Dine Out or the First Tuesday Movie Night, please contact Laurie Foster at [email protected] or at 268-1057. As usual, members typically meet at MountainView and carpool to the restaurant or movie site.

Our other activities include:

Dining Out: We go out for dinner on the third Wednesday of each month and enjoy a wide variety of restaurants.

Potlucks: On the fourth Saturday of the month, we gather at a member’s home for a potluck dinner and good conversation.

Meetups: Ever feel like going to a place or event, but would like some companions to go with you? Every month, our members get together for activities such as concerts, restaurants, happy hours and more.

Games: Like to play games? We have groups of members who gather regularly to play canasta, Mexican Train, Scrabble, mahjong, bridge and others.

Breakfast and Books: The WOOO book club meets at 9:00 a.m. on the fourth Friday of every month from January to October. Our club meets at the Mesquite Grill to enjoy breakfast and then discuss the monthly book selection. For more information, contact Brenda McBride at [email protected].

Excursions and travel: We periodically sponsor trips to locations both near and far.
