What we're about

This is a social and business networking community for single male professionals (aged 40+) who want to join professional Black women to explore NYC fine dining venues and enjoy other fun upscale events.

So, come...socialize, network or just make a few new friends while you sample the finest cuisine and events NYC has to offer. Some of our events are $$$$ pricey, but then - you've earned the choice of enjoying the finer things in life!

We welcome single professional men of all races, ethic and religious backgrounds!

If you're looking for "hook-ups" - this is not that group, please move on.

This Meetup is Completely Different!

A Refreshing Way to Socialize/Network With Fabulous Single Black Professional Women!

How It Works:

1) Our professional female singles are members of a separate (parallel) group where I organize the events.

2) As organizer for both groups:

a) I first curate events for the women's platform.

b) Once I have the desired number of female RSVP's - I announce the event on this platform.

There will be a limited number of invitations extended.

3) Since the male/female meetup groups are actually separate, you can't view female profiles (nor can they view yours)

4) So, you ATTEND events (when invite is posted) to actually meet single professional women!

5) If you're interested in attending one of our Meetups, simply RSVP when the event is posted here.

Most important, If your plans subsequently change and you can no longer make an event, kindly update your RSVP so we know who is actually attending the event.

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, politics, movies, sports, etc. - in a relaxed, yet sophisticated setting.

Typical Meetup?

Who Should Join this Meetup?

Fun-loving, single male professionals aged 40+ who enjoy upscale experiences AND also want to connect and network with professional Black women in their fabulous 40's.

This is not a meetup where you pursue profiles and then send emails.

Join only if you want to ATTEND meetups and meet singles in person!

Membership to This Group is Selective.

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