Occasionally, I will meet my friends at the coffee shop when all of us have free time. We usually meet together in the evening on Saturday or Sunday at the weekend.

I occasionally meet my best friend for lunch or dinner. Because I do not have too much free time. I works every week and study at weekend for English class.

I fall into pattern of family life so I hardly have a chance to meet my friends. But if I have time I prefer a calm coffee shop for meeting because I am very sick of crowded places. I like coffee too so I think it would be best place for me.
I can only go out without my kid in the weekend because my husband is off and can handed me out to be care for my daughter.

I always meet my friend at her house. Then, 25 minutes later, we decide where we want to go. We usually go for a walk or go window shopping. Then, we go for a coffee.
