Fun with Friends Knoxville Fun with Friends Knoxville Founded in 2018, Fun with Friends Knoxville (FwF) is a highly active social group in East TN with thousands of members. We began as a small group of friends meeting twice a week. Every week we would invite people at the establishments to join us that evening and the following as we played games, socialized and hung out. Realizing the benefit in this, we began a Facebook group page. PO Box 70784 Knoxville, TN 37938 865-279-8250 Email
