Are you tired of having nothing fun to do? Or have no interestingly engaging friends to hang out with? Are you either working that same 9-5 and never taking time to smell the roses? Or just sitting at home on a perfectly good Friday night alone knowing perfectly well you should be out partaking in all life has to offer?

Or is it the other way around, are you always on the go, always visiting cultural exhibits, participating in grass roots events and/or checking items off your ever growing "bucket list", but you wish could find your niche, a savvy adventurous open-minded welcoming group of people who share your interests?

Well either way, you're in luck! ... Introducing (drum roll please...)

NEW YORK WANNA DO, the overall most eclectic, culturally-hip, socially-conscious and fun loving networking group to hit But, don't let the name fool you, we are a gentle bunch lol...

WHO WE ARE:  We are a group of FUN, FRIENDLY and FEARLESS New Yorkers and we are looking to create a great group of true close friends to socialize often while having fun and participating in new experiences and enjoying all that life has to offer. What unites us is our hunger to explore all the amazing things that life has to offer in hopes of expanding our horizons and our desire to help others who have been oppressed in some form or fashion to feel life's magnificence. Together we will seek out thrills and squeezing its juice and enjoying it to the very last drop.

OUR MEMBERS: Wanna Doers come from all different walks of life. Our members are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. All are welcome regardless of age, race or creed as long as you come with an open mind, a loving heart and a “wanna do” spirit.

OUR EVENTS: We make the most of what this great city has to offer by attending a diverse assortment of great events and activities, be it grass-roots events, random fun, dining out, visiting museums, hit a hiking trail, see the latest movie blockbuster, wine tastings, learn a new skill, and taking day trips out of the city, and much, much more!

We're always on a scavenger hunt for new and exciting experiences and when we find them, we dive right on in!

Our events are held throughout the five boroughs of New York City and beyond.  All our events are typically casual and low key. Most of our events such as dining events are generally kept at no more than 15 attendees and when you attend an event with us, you will feel right at home, and you will know everyone’s name.

So... what are you waiting for ?!??!

Get out of the house!
