Social Events


Post Workout Grub

We sure work up an appetite while swimming, so at least once a week we like to grab a meal together after practice! Join us for a regular Friday dinner at a restaurant near the pool: location changes each week.  Here’s a look at the schedule for the first few Friday dinners (fall 2022): 


Sept. 9 Lieutenant's Pump - Elgin St

Sept. 16 Gabriel's Pizza - Somerset and Bank

Sept. 23 Joey Rideau - Rideau St

Sept. 30 Grounded Kitchen - Gloucester St.

Meet us at about 8:00 p.m for dinner. And let someone know you are coming so we know how many seats to save! 


The best way to stay up-to-date on Speedeaus social activities is to join our Messenger group. Reach out to be added. 


We also hope to organize other social activities, from karaoke to potluck dinners – any chance to see each other with clothes on! If you’d like to organize a social event, send us your idea!
