What we're about

This is a social networking community for successful Black women professionals 40+ who want to gather in small, intimate groups (4-8) to explore and dine at upscale NYC "foodie" restaurants and enjoy fun events.

So, come make new friends, network - and have fun while we sample the finest cuisine and events NYC has to offer. Some of our events are often a bit pricey, but then - you deserve and enjoy the finer things in life!

What's Upscale?
An upscale event starts with an engaging, dynamic and diverse mix of people who appreciate great food and interesting, easy conversation about life, current and cultural events, books, plays, movies etc. - in a relaxed, yet sophisticated setting.

Typical Events?

In addition to upscale "foodie" experiences - events may include charity events, museums, performing arts, book discussions, afternoon teas, wine tastings, seminars, spa and wellness days, weekend getaways - and much more!

$$$$ Events Are Typical.

For example, a Play or Music event would typically also include a "fine dining" meal (before or after performance). Therefore, the Meetup would be - the show AND dinner.

Some of the "fine dining" venues are very pricey.

Who Should Join this Meetup?

Mature, fun-loving professional Black women aged 40+ who truly enjoy "foodie" fine dining experiences at upscale venues AND can ATTEND events on weekends (or Friday evening).

Membership to Group is Selective.

This meetup is selective in order to maintain a small, intimate group of Black professionals who actually get to know each other over time.

Diversity Within Our Community.

We welcome and celebrate the richness and diversity of all Black women within our community!

NOTE: We may require upfront deposits for some events. The refund policy for each event will always be made clear.
