Are you tired of dealing with precocious 38-year-olds?
Fed up with 20 and 30-somethings who think they know it all? If your answer is yes, yes, yes, we have the cure you need: The Taipei Over-40s Group!
The Taipei Over-40s Group is just that - a group of older people who have at least that much in common: being born before 1965.
This is intended as a social group that will meet at least once a month for lunch or dinner, and occasionally for walks (not too gruelling), special outings to arts and cultural events etc. There are no hard and fast rules - let’s talk about what we’d like the group to be, and what we would like to do.
This group is modelled on a similar group in Seoul, South Korea, which is very successful.
The first meeting is set for Sunday November 14, at 11am. We’ll brunch at a pleasant outdoor patio overlooking a small lake at Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall park. The cafe has an indoor section if the weather is not good.
We’ll follow that with a short walk up Tiger Mountain Trail, which is a little way east of the Taipei 101 Building. The view of 101 and the city from the top is worth the grind up the short hill.
The patio-cafe is called Big Tom, and is at the west entrance to Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall park. If coming by MRT, take Exit 3 of the SYS Memorial Hall MRT station, turn left onto Guangfu South Road and walk down (heading south) about 150 metres until you reach the vehicle entrance. The entrance into Big Tom Cafe is a short distance further.
All 40s and over welcome - Taiwanese and foreigners of all nationalities.
