This is a group for those who are either "snowbirds" or "transplants" from New York, and are interested in meeting and socializing with other New Yorkers who also live in SW Florida. Whether you are from Lawng Island, Upstate or one of the 5 boroughs of NYC, let's get together, tawk and enjoy one another's company. Make some new friends, share news from our home state, enjoy local casual dining and anything else that looks like fun! We had a very successful kick-off on May 5th with our 1st meetup at GATHER at The Westin Resort in Cape Coral and plan to have a "meet & mingle" in a similar setting on a monthly basis to bring us all together regularly. In addition, 1 or 2 scheduled meetups during the month centered around an activity and in various locations in SW Florida, should satisfy the range of interests and preferences expressed by our members. Our commonality is where we are from, not what we will be doing once we meetup. Lots of interesting and diverse activities to follow.
Let's celebrate the upcoming holiday a little early while being thankful for new friends and 6 months of New Yawk Tawk! Bring an appetizer, small plate, a beverage or something sweet for the entire group to sample. Show off your culinary talents or get a dish from Publix! Bring a friend too! Your friend, spouse or partner does not have to be a New Yorker ! Let me know what you would like to bring so I can keep track and we don't have duplicates!
There is also a pool table room and several big screen TVs if you don't want to miss the news! Lots of seating that is even more comfortable than at Gather with a big island for displaying our delicious dishes to sample. There is no bar, but there is a refrigerator, so bring your own beverage!
