If there are also any other paint night or craft events coming up, they will be listed on this page on the left under "Upcoming Events". 


Fitness Social Events 


Staying active releases endorphins "happy hormones" and sharing the same hobbies as a friend makes it so much fun. At a couple breweries here in Florence, they would host yoga and beer events and other work out events. Many of them are on the weekends during the day or evenings but they also have them during the week too! If they are coming up, they will be listed on the left under "Upcoming Events" on this page. 

Going to a gym and bringing a friend as a guest or yourself as a guest is a great way to have some mommy time. We have also been blessed with a couple new yoga studios in Florence! If there are any gym or studio special events coming up, they will be listed under "Upcoming Events" on this page too.


There are a few regular 5k runs in Florence too! Look out for the All 4 Autism (usually in March) and Run Like a Nut run (usually in November)! As the events get nearer, they will be listed on the left side on this page under "Upcoming Events". 

Trivia Nights & Popular Sit Downs


Why is it that trivia nights always coincides with drinking nights? Because they are a great combo in using brain power and laughter power. 

Trivia Nights

For those who like to use their brain power with others, trivia nights are a great way to hang out with your mom buds. They are usually at night and are hosted regularly at several locations. Here's our list: Mellow Mushroom (always on Tuesday) and Seminar Brewing (always on Wednesday).

Mellow Mushroom has their trivia nights every Tuesday at 7pm. It's free to play and you could win Mellow Mushroom Gift Cards, exclusive merchandise from breweries & distilleries, free pitchers of beer and more! Address: 120 Dunbarton Dr, Florence, South Carolina 29501

Seminar Brewing has their trivia nights on Wednesdays from 7pm - 9pm. I notice that sometimes they skip a Wednesday here and there. Each week, "Right Answers with Wrong Travis" awards winners, and they'll award a grand prize at the end of 12 weeks. Address: 551 West Lucas Street, Florence, South Carolina 29501
