What we're about

The Awesome Events Meetup Group is the real-life version of the Facebook page (facebook.com/AwesomeEventsNYC) where people meet and participate in super fun activities together.

While most of the events are free, some will be ticketed. I leave it to you to choose what interests you. For me, it's all about doing things together, meeting new people, and making new friends.

The Awesome Events group is open to persons of all races, colors, religions, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, genetic information, and dogs are welcome too.
