What we're about

This group is for wonderful, friendly women who like to socialize, go to live music and other shows, museums etc to make friends. If you are looking for great friends and fun times, you will fit right in. This is a woman’s only group. If we are going to a music or similar show, I always set the event time for an hour earlier so we can chat before the show starts. Of course, you can arrive at a time that is good for each of you.

*****There are $5 annual membership to help pay the annual costs of running the group, which are over $550.

Dues and events are paid through PayPal under the “family & friends” option or thru Zelle, at your bank, both at 973-202-8298. My Venmo is @Barbara-Silverstein-7. At Venmo please also make sure you use the “family and friends” option otherwise a fee is taken out and Venmo, same as with PayPal. I don’t run this group as a business.

I purchase tix to shows mostly at discount prices so that we are assured of sitting together. All tickets must be paid for when I post a paid event and you RSVP. For full price shows at City Winery, money is paid in advance so I can purchase tix. There is no service charge as I have an annual membership there. We have been to great shows there, including, but not limited to, seeing Kevin Bacon and his brother; Bettye LaVette, a long time soul singer in her 70’s, who btw, still has it; a benefit for gun safety and other great artists, Sophie B. Hawkins and Suzanne Vega more recently.

I have many websites where I can get discount tix for shows. Even though I don’t know where our seats will be, we all sit together and I have never gotten bad seats. City Winery has no food/drink minimum. Most other places do. I keep my eye out for free or discount tix daily. I only set up shows for later in the day/ evenings due to medical issues that I have. For any further info please look at past and pending, and future events. Hope to meet you soon!

I occasionally post info about activities that I can not attend but which I think members might be interested in as well as great deals, such as sample sales. Looking for women to host daytime activities.

***A lot of women cancel from attending an event at the last minute or next to last minute or simply do not show up. That is not fair to women on a waitlist or to me as I spend a lot of time setting up events. I keep track of these women and if you cancel twice last minute without good reason you will be placed on probation. After a 3rd time you will be dropped. Other groups do this as well.
