When set of artists combine, plan, produce and market a program there are various terms to refer this activity. e.g Production, Staging.

When a set of friends make a plan to attend a program (say, to attend a movie/drama/watch a game), really attend that and then discuss/share things about that program, is there a single English word to describe their whole activity?

I can think of 'enjoyment', 'entertainment' etc, but I don't think they really describe the situation I describe above.

    I don't believe there is a single, atomic English word which captures all those aspects of the experience, nor a short, standard phrase. – Dan Bron Jun 7 '15 at 13:51

  • do you mean sort of like "a day out"? we planned a day out in NYC. – Fattie Jun 7 '15 at 16:24
  • Agree with @DanBron. I think the closest you can come would be something like: "We soaked ourselves in a day of baseball." – Tushar Raj Jun 7 '15 at 17:02
  • It's an "event", but somewhere the event must be described. – Hot Licks Nov 4 '15 at 23:22

Let's suppose you go to a museum with friends who are interested in contemporary painting. You spend the whole afternoon at the Paul Getty Museum and then go somewhere quiet to discuss your experience. I would call this "a didactical entertainment" or "a didactical experience".


There are social websites for this, for example see Movies and Discussions Meetups, is that what you mean?
