What we're about

This is a a group for people who live and work In NY and the surrounding area, but who recognize we are in one of the greatest metropolitan areas in the world. It's for people who are creatures of the city, with all its diversity, possibilities, opportunities, and excitement. To be sure, we will make excursions into the city--and that includes Queens and Brooklyn as well as Manhattan...and let's not forget the Bronx and Staten Island as well. However, we will get together here on Long Island too, in the interest of promoting convenience and encouraging inclusion by people whose budgets may not allow them to take trips to the city as frequently as they'd like. The point of this group is as much to allow meeting, forming friendships, and having fellowship with others whose hearts belong in the city, as it is to take trips into the city for all that it offers.

Some of the event types we offer are :Museums, speed dating, bowling, pool, golf, bingo, shows, rock climbing, mingles and more.

This group is not for pick-up or seduction techniques, or wingman tactics.

Warm regards,

Upcoming events (4+)

Meetup on The Orient Express Paris, Venice, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul!!

The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!
.
This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The journey will mirror elements of the original Orient Express route from Paris to Istanbul. The Original Orient Express no longer exists. We are re-creating the route using modern trains and conveniences.
.
Paris for 3 days
Venice 2 days
Vienna 2 days
Prague 2 days
Budapest 2 days
Istanbul 3 days
.
Included: train or air travel between the 6 cities, transfers to hotels, train stations or airports, guided tours in each city, one or more meals a day, museum entrances, wine tasting and much more!
In addition, many other options and extras are included.
.
We travel as a group, and also have the flexibility of hop-on, hop-off tours and museum passes with "skip the line" so you enjoy a complete independence. You are free to do your own thing, cater to your special interests, visit other sights and locations in the cities, while still being guided and helped with all the arrangements. You can do it independently, or you can join new friends traveling with you, and do it together. The idea is: come alone, meet new like-minded people and make lifelong memories...without being stuck with the "one size fits all" tour formula.
.
The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The original Orient Express is but a memory. And we are bringing back the best parts.
.
EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul built in 1882 with it's grandeur and opulence.
.
Visit 6 countries: France, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Turkey!
.
$3940 total cost per person, double occupancy.

Just like with traditional speed dating, at the end of the event you will be able to let us know who you were interested in. We will send you both mutual matches (you picked them and they picked you) as well as one way matches (they picked you but you did not pick them).
