People in New York always seem to say, "This is a tough city in which to meet people." This group was designed to make it a whole lot easier. Drinking with Strangers is about bringing people together, whether new to the area or native, and meeting up at a local bar, restaurant, or event without the formalities associated with the usual scene.

Drinking with Strangers is a place where friendly people can come out and enjoy good company with other easy-going, receptive people for drinks, eats, socializing, and making new friends.

Drinking with Strangers is free to join, and is currently a work in progress. Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated. We'll try to keep the rules to a minimum. I do have one:

Don't create an awkward environment for others. Members who are not respectful and friendly towards others will be removed from the group.

Thanks for joining; I look forward to meeting you at the next event!

This group is open for all - singles, married people, new-in-towners, and people who have been in the tri-state area for a while and are simply looking for a new group to go out with in NYC. Membership is FREE, and you only have to be friendly and fun to join!

P.S. As a thank you for joining our group, be sure to check your new member welcome email for a discount code to be used towards your first Meetup event.

Psychic Angel Tarot Reading

Online event

Click this link to sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/online-psychic-angel-tarot-readings-tickets-105308364152 (We have readings on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday so after you click the link, choose the date/time you want) You will have a personal one-on-one psychic reading live via video from Martha of Martha's Tarot (world-renowned psychic / 5 star Google rated). The reading will last between 15-20 minutes. Martha connects with your Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels to bring you the most helpful and uplifting information. When reaching for a new level of understanding of our lives, when we have a very specific question we would like an answer to, or when we would just like to know if we are "on-track"; that's when we find support through any number of psychic readings. Martha ALWAYS connects with love and light. She believes in the strength and power of God, Source Energy (or whichever term feels correct to you). Her aim is to help you gain understanding, identify opportunities, to hone in on possible events or circumstances that may be of help you. ------------------------------------ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: "Her reading literally changed my life..." - Angela "My reading with Martha was wonderful. She offered real insight into an uncomfortable situation I was in, which proved to be very helpful. Plus, the cards indicated there would be an upcoming celebration and not too long after my reading my brother announced he was getting married. So exciting." - Rayna K. "The reading itself is a vibration shifter..." - Barbara A MESSAGE FROM MARTHA: I am a psychic and a medium: the cards are a tool for my abilities to flow to you. How My Psychic Abilities Work for You: ​Clairvoyance: I see images like snapshots and symbols or stories that unfold in my mind like a movie. Clairaudience: I hear clearly messages in the form of words, sentences or music. Clairsentience: I feel the feelings and energy of those near and far and make clear sense of what it is I am perceiving. Medium/Channel: Using all of the above mentioned abilities as well as allowing information to flow right through my mind from our Spirit Guides and Angels. I do my best to step aside and allow them to use my knowledge and senses to express their messages to you. .........................................

REAL GOOGLE REVIEWS: I can confidently say that I will definitely be going back to her! Her kind and gentle soul along side her sunny disposition made me feel open and connected to her instantly. Her reading was extremely positive, and enlightening. - Danielle, Orange County, NY --------------- Thank you so much for everything honestly. I can't express enough how grateful I am to have met you. - Joseph, Dutchess County --------------- I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the reading was! Martha provided me with so much information, clarity, and helped to guide me in the right direction. She’s very honest with her delivery and feedback. She’s an excellent listener and it’s clear she’s genuinely interested and makes an effort to connect to her clients; I felt like I Knew her for years! I will definitely be back again! 5 STARS FOR MARTHA! - Alissa C., Queens, NY Click this link to sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/online-psychic-angel-tarot-readings-tickets-105308364152 (We have readings on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday so after you click the link, choose the date/time you want)
