I had different sets of friends. There were the classical music friends who wouldn't be caught dead in a pop music venue and the friends who wouldn't go to the opera if you paid them. And jazz people are TOTAL music snobs I had my arty friends to go gallery and museum hopping. My upper east side friends, my Harlem friends and my Village friends. Friends who couldn't read or appreciate anything past a comic book and friends who were college professors.
Where ever my curiosity took me, that's where I went and I never found anyone who wanted to go to all the places I did - so different social circles for different curiosities...Like Jerry Garcia said "What a long strange trip it's been"
