What we're about

Want to go out and socialize with folks that are mid-career or more? Or want to have what is next conversations with experience that determines those decisions? This meetup is for 40+ year olds in Western Queens who are looking to socialize with people more in their own phase/s of life.

You'll be able to meet your neighbors in our wonderful Astoria, LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights, Corona, Rego Park and Forest Hills - NW or 7/R/E/F/M people. We will meet in bars, restaurants, or at other events in the various neighborhoods monthly, and we won't have you hike across town (or a bridge or tunnel) to do it (at least not often)! We will mainly have weekend events so for those of you who work in the city, don't have to rush back to Queens (as much as you want to) to try to make an event. There will be a definite emphasis on good food and/or good drinks, and the occasional dinner!

We will be happy to have other organizers to plan events as well, particularly those who consider themselves experts in their respective neighborhoods or aspects of their neighborhoods. Also, if you are under 40, we are happy you attend, but know the majority of the group will be over 40. The group is to have fun, entertain or be entertained! So only interesting, go forward, what is next, and where do we go from here conversations....as well as any good jokes. No looking back, only forward!

Please post a photo in order to be approved as a member (we need to know you are a real person for safety reasons) and then you can happily change it back once you are approved. We reserve the right to delete your membership if you are not kind, do not RSVP/apologize appropriately, weird anyone out, or do not visit the site or attend an event in the last 12 months. Only fun, interesting, nice people (who are not whiners) who will actively participate should attend. There will be a $2 fee at arrival at events to help cover meetup fees (we most likely won't ask for it but we will try) unless a dinner or wine tasting that requires payment ahead of time to confirm attendance.

Looking forward to meeting you all!
