EVENT DESCRIPTION: A fun online Scavenger Hunt with a mysterious twist! You will be teamed up with other members and friends to try and help solve the mystery through collaboration and online searches.

How it works:
- Register below and we will send you a code to join our Zoom meeting.
- Have a pen and paper on hand as you may need to take notes and jot down clues.
- You will be given a list of clues as the game progresses that you will need to research and investigate both online and with other participants.
- The team that has the most points from figuring out the clues wins!
- We’ll have time to socialize before during and after the event.

The Story: Yuki and Antonio are members of the New York Social Network. They met at one of the events and plan to get married. The trouble is that Yukki’s ex-boyfriend (Billy) is not ready to let her go and plus he gave her a very expensive pendant and he wants it back! He will go to the ends of the earth to stop the wedding and get his gift back! Follow the story of Yuki and Antonio as they travel the world to try and outsmart Billy while trying to tie the knot. You will be teamed up with other members of the group and given clues to find the famous places they run to and the things they did. In the end you will need to solve the mystery of what finally happens to Billy and the pendant.

Who participates in these? The demographics of our online events are varied unless we have a specific criteria listed. For the most part there are all ages and ethnicities. Realistically, this should not matter to you. If there is an event that you would like to do, then do it! It is totally different than physically being stuck at something you are not enjoying. You can “click out” at any time. If you are unhappy with the experience we will refund your fee.

Dress Code: Covid casual

Hosted by Dave Cervini's http://www.NewYorkSocialNetwork.com/ and several partner MeetUp groups. Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what many do... you will always have a host to greet you and introduce you to other members at our events.

Speed FRIENDING - Expand Your Social Network (Online)

Online event


*TO ATTEND REGISTER AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/speed-friending/dates/ (*Multiple Meetup groups are co-organizing so the RSVP's shown are just a very small portion attending. We have at least 20 registered.)

Make new friends and add to your social network - all from the comfort and safety of your own home!

Many of us are now looking to make new friends and find new ways to socialize. Virtual Speed Friending allows you to meet new people and make new friends nationwide - in a fun and safe environment!

We will take all of the participants and break them up Virtually into smaller groups of 3-4 people. You will be in a private online room (for 5-10 minutes) with just your small group (you can see and hear others in your group). The host will provide an ice breaker question. At the end of each round, you will have an opportunity to share contact information privately with people you felt connected with. The groups will then be mixed up again and you will continue to meet more people.

*If you purchased a ticket, don't worry if it says "Unpaid" next to your RSVP. That's just a Meetup glitch. All paid attendees will get Zoom link day of the event. If you do not receive by the afternoon on the day of event, please message the organizer. Cost: $15- $20 depending on how early you register.

Adult Friendly Feud (+ Dirty Minds Online Game Night)

Online event

*TO ATTEND GET TICKET AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/friendly-feud/dates/ (This is a multi-group event and we've already received a good # of registrations so don't pay attention to the RSVPs on one group.)

This is the ADULT version of our very popular Friendly Feud game. There is nothing X-rated, but some of the questions would be considered R-rated or involve adult themes.

We'll also be playing Dirty Minds - the World’s cleanest dirty game. See how highly suggestive clues will lead to the most innocent of answers, only to find out how much dirt is in your head. Get your mind out of the gutter to be the winner of this game!

This completely online event will be LIVE and you will be able to see and hear the other participants while playing. In addition you will get to meet and interact with other participants.

At game time, your host will read off several survey questions on a variety of topics. Your goal is to come up with the number one answer to each question and write it down on your paper. Once the round is over (about 6 questions), we will go through the answers and determine who had the highest score for the round. The winners will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event. Prizes will be an Amazon Gift card!

Zoom link will be emailed to you day of the event.
