What we're about

***Seeking wonderful women who like to socialize, wine and dine, go to live music and other shows with women friends. If you are looking for great friends and fun times, you will fit right in. This is a woman’s only group. Quite a few men have tried to join and I have attempted to drop them. If we are going to a 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.

*****Membership dues have been raised to $5 for women who have not paid yet or who want to join. Effective July 1st. I have been trying to figure out how to edit this statement and finally figured it out. Dues are annual and can be paid at PayPal under the “friends & family” option or thru Zelle, at your bank, both at 973-202-8298. Will see if I can add Venmo.

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.

I have a good relationship with City Winery Concierge and they help me get seats for shows that I pay for directly thru The Winery. I have websites where I can get discount tix for their shows. Even though I don’t know where our seats will be, we all sit together and I have never gotten bad seats. If I get tix thru The Winery, I don’t pay a service fee as I buy an annual CW membership that gives me advance notice of shows as well. City Winery has no food/drink minimum. Most other places do. Before Omicron, I was getting discount tix to Birdland and a lot of us attended great jazz shows there. I keep my eye out for new discount tix daily. I am also looking for free shows, like the 2 art shows I have set up. I only set up shows for later in the day/ evenings due to medical issues that I have. For any further info please message me.

***A lot of women have been canceling from attending an event until the minute or next to last minute. I am keeping track of these women and if you cancel last minute without good reason 2 times you will be placed on probation. Other groups do this as well.

Jazz with Samara Joy/Little Island Glade

Needs a location

Come hear the latest Jazz newsmaker, 24 yo Samara Joy, at Little Island, Pier 55. She won the Sara Vaughn Jazz competition in 2019. She is the real deal. Samara Joy has been performing around the City and elsewhere for sometime now. Listen to her on Spotify. She is really terrific. I just saw Samara Joy in an ad for Patron Tequila.

I am setting the limit at 10 for now as I don’t know how hard it is secure seats at Little Island Glade. If anyone wants to help me secure seats, please let me know. We will be sitting in the Glade not the amphitheater, in which case look for the silk sunflowers in the grass just outside the Glade if the Glade is full.
