What do you like to do for fun?

I love to eat at great restaurants. I love going to plays and concerts. Sightseeing and the MOVIES. I am especially interested in learning more about the mid- to north- Atlantic region as I'm a Midwesterner. Work has taken up about 95% of my life since I moved to NYC. I'm kinda over that. I'm ready to relax and have some fun.

What book would you like the group to read for our "Book Discussion Brunch"?

Dare I say it... "Fifty Shades of Grey." A coworker handed over her copy to me about 6 weeks ago. And another coworker/friend has been going on-and-on about for the past couple weeks. So I guess I'll be adding the trilogy to my summer reading list.

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?

Europe and Africa. I dream of the day that I can see Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe/Zambia. I have only seen it on television and pictures. But I believe it may be the most beautiful place on Earth. I've only been through Europe, enroute to India. I'm blessed to say that I've walked barefoot on the beauiful white marble of the Taj Mahal; live, volunteer and study in New Delhi, India. However, there are plenty of places in THIS country, I've yet to travel: the Grand Canyon. Mount Rushmore. Maine! The Gulla-Geechee Region of South Carolina...

What is your favorite thing to do in New York?

I love going to plays. I love listening to live music. And I love going to nice restaurants. So much can be learned about different cultures based on its cuisine.


Hi There! I'm Valeah. I moved to NYC 4 years ago for work. New York is an amazing city and I'm always looking for fun things to do with good people. I just saw this group on my MeetUp page and thought it would be great to join!
