Bright and Beautiful Ladies in NY (30’s to 50's)

New York, NY

Bright and Beautiful Ladies in NY (30’s to 50's)

Ladies! We are adventurous, imaginative, enthusiastic women in their 30’s to 50's who are insatiably curious about the people and places that make up NY. If you are open-minded, inclusive and ready to make new friends, you just found your tribe!

Together, we’ll deep-dive into arts, music, dance, comedy, history, architecture, variety arts, craft fairs, antique districts, flea markets, local festivals, and all manner of culture and counterculture. Of course, we’ll find fun and fabulous places to eat and drink along our way. We want our activities to be as varied as our membership.

So come join us! There’s a world of new friends here that can’t wait to meet you!

A few comments:

And your ideas are always welcome! YOU can be an event organizer! We're always happy to help you make your event sparkle!

Some events will be free. But for others, we may ask for a small fee to cover Meetup expenses. Some events may have limits on the number of people the venue will allow. But we’ll always try to have a waitlist.

A few rules to remember:

For the safety of all our members, we require a clear profile photo.

If you RSVP and then don’t cancel more than 24 hours before at 2 events, we’ll have to show you out of the group for 2 months. But that won’t happen because you’ll update your RSVPs and cancel with at least 24 hours notice! Right?

And if you RSVP and we never see you that’s a NO SHOW. 2 no-shows and we will remove you from the group for 6 months.

No-shows and Last-minute cancellations put our ability to book terrific venues at risk! Your event organizers and sister members will appreciate your courtesy especially when there's a wait list.

Be kind and welcoming to everyone you meet here. We ask that you never contact group members you haven’t met in person. Don’t send group emails for any reason. Be respectful in the comments.

Past Lives, Dreams, Soul Travel throughout New York

New York, NY

Past Lives, Dreams, Soul Travel throughout New York

Open to all those looking to find more wisdom, love, inner peace and spiritual freedom in their lives, through better understanding of dreams, past lives and the personal way the universe speaks to us daily. Move naturally and easily into higher areas of awareness and help life flow in a smoother and happier direction. One form of personal meditation we explore is known as a "Spiritual Exercise". This form of simple meditation, using your creative imagination, strengthens your inner guidance and helps you recognize your true identity as Soul, an eternal and divine spark of God.

Nothing needs to be taken on faith. Experience it yourself.

Have you had one of the following spiritual experiences? Come and share; learn more about connecting to direct guidance and achieving personal growth.

* Past-life recall or having a sense that you have lived before (in a meditation or dream)

* Dreams -- that opened awareness, expanded your consciousness, told of a future event, gave you an answer

* Out-of-body or near death experience * Seeing an inner light

* Hearing an inner sound

* Inner guidance (angel, spiritual master, departed loved one)

* Knowingness (intuition, coincidence, déjà vu)

* Unconditional love (from a family member, friend, pet, etc.)

* Sense of oneness, divine love

* Connection with all life -- greater awareness, feeling of inner peace

Creative techniques are discussed in these Meetups to further explore our inner worlds. Similar to meditation, yet more active, these contemplation techniques, such as singing the ancient love song to God, HU, (pronounced 'hue") helps with self improvement, brings self empowerment through greater inner understanding, opens consciousness, helps in understanding how karma is created, how to work through it, and gives guidance on how to achieve states of Self and God Realization.

HU, this ancient and sacred word for God, can be found in the Jewish Kabala, Christian Gregorian chant, Buddhism, the Sufi teachings, Chinese Taoism, as well as in the path of Eckankar. It is a universal word with a very high vibration. You are invited to try it anytime you would like, either out loud or silently to experience the effects for yourself. (

We warmly welcome you to join us in our events and discussions that take place in all 5 boroughs, Westchester and Rockland – a common meeting ground for all who have had or would like to have a life-changing spiritual experience.

Our group is sponsored by Eckankar. Experience the Light and Sound of God. This ancient spiritual teaching offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth for themselves.

To learn more about Eckankar, go to  You can find out about advanced study and the spiritual exercises of ECK.

New Jersey Divas Who Rock

Bloomfield, NJ

New Jersey Divas Who Rock

Hey Divas! Welcome to the New Jersey Divaz Who Rock group! This is a group for adult females of all ages who are interested in meeting new people who share common interests. I have realized that as an adult it is easy to lose touch with old friends and even harder to make new ones, so I hope this meetup can help make lasting friendships! I would like to get together at least once per month to socialize and have fun. Some of the events I am planning include dinner, drinks, dancing, bowling, hiking, movie nights, game nights, trips to NYC and more! Suggestions are always welcomed of course and if you are interested in becoming an event host please let me know!

We understand that circumstances occur. But we ask that if you have RSVPed for an event, and can no longer attend, that you update your RSVP. We want to keep the group open to like minded individuals who are here to meet new people and are open to creating longlisting friendships. Therefore we will be implementing strict rules in regards to "No shows". Which is someone who has RSVP multiple times and have not shown up or informed an organizer before hand.

SAFETY: <br>We want everyone to have a safe and pleasant experience while participating in our meetups/events. By joining the group or participating in anything that is posted, you and your guests are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being.


Getting drunk can come with repercussions far worse than feeling embarrassed. Please take the appropriate measures when it comes to monitoring your drinking as alcohol affects everyone differently. If you notice someone's drinking has recurrently crossed the line from "moderate" or "social drinking" to "binge" or "problem drinking" - please inform the event host/organizers privately. Going out with crowds of people is fun and can often times lead people to drink more. Remember that alcohol does change people's actions and behaviors. Please make sure that while you are attending meetups/events... that you are representing yourself, as well as our group in a safe, positive, friendly, and respectful manner.

<br> If there is someone in the group who has a problem with drinking and driving, please send me a private message. We need to take every measure to ensure that our get togethers are done in a safe manner. The responsibility of planning ahead on a social drinking night is YOUR obligation and no one else under any circumstance. Please always have a backup plan.

New York, NY

Tastes of the World NYC

***TASTE and DISCOVER flavors from around the world one delicious Nation at a time ... all without ever stepping on a plane!*** New York City is home to a myriad of ethnicities that showcase their rich cultures through their cuisines. What better way to explore this rich ethnic heritage of New York City than to sample cuisines from all around the world right in our own backyards without ever having to buy a plane ticket. Come join us we set out on a culinary journey across the 5 boroughs of NYC to locate and sample all the authentic ethnic cuisines and discover some new tastes as well as re-visit some old favorites. No foodie experience required. All you need is a Metrocard, an open mind and a willingness to try new cuisines, and most importantly an empty stomach to come join us as we take that subway ride across the 5 boroughs where many delicious ethnic dishes await. You will be glad you did, and your tummy will thank you for it. All our events will be held throughout the 5 boroughs of NYC, with main focus on the mom-and-pop restaurants located in the outer boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Staten Island, all reachable on MTA subway and/or buses, or even Metro-North. OUR MEETUPS: Good food is meant to be shared. At each Meetup, we will dine FAMILY-STYLE, NO EXCEPTIONS! Final food bill, together with tax and tips will be shared evenly. Any drinks are separate and are the responsibility of the drinkers. Number of attendees to our events will be kept at a small number (no more than 10 to 12) to allow everyone to get to know each other. MEETUP FEE: To help defray the cost of paying Meetup HQ to keep the site up and running, a $1.00 Meetup fee will be collected at RANDOMLY selected events. \*\*NOTE: this group is not suitable for those with any kind of dietary restrictions\*\* Group founded: November 6, 2021

Long Island Love Live and Thrive

Long Island City, NY

Long Island Love Live and Thrive

Healthy relationships really matter! This group was created for those seriously looking for love and for those who have a desire to be active, mostly outdoors. We attract those who 1. have a desire to be active 2. love the outdoors even though online meetings/classes are offered 3. are kind, caring, and compassionate 4. are grateful people 5. notice, appreciate and crave simple, natural beauties in life 6. are low maintenance 7. are nature lovers 8. are friendly, fun, respectful and welcoming Over the past 19 years of growing my Live and Thrive groups, these character traits stand out the most and are the most common in our membership. When you attend any online meeting and/or class I'll be eager to get to know you better and help others more easily connect with you. Just some of the ways I accomplish this: 1. Make a short podcast about you 2. Create a Nature Note of your first name only (it's a great conversation piece) 3. Plan some group dates for you that are low risk and no pressure 4. Encourage you to consistently attend some group outings so people can find you easily and get to know you better I have seen first hand how many long-term relationships have developed over time. Rather than expensive, high-pressure dates, our members tend to want to spend more time with someone who loves simple, inexpensive activities or outings centered around nature.  If this concept resonates with you, I hope you will join us soon and let me get to work finding someone you are truly compatible with! Welcome!

Five Borough Futbol Club (Pick-up Soccer Games)

New York, NY

Five Borough Futbol Club (Pick-up Soccer Games)

Quality, competitive pick-up games without the commitment of a weekly league.

This group is dedicated to elevating the beautiful game for the men and women of New York City. The level of play is intermediate and above, meaning that most of us played growing up and enjoy competing for bragging rights.

We believe in fair play, healthy competition, and inclusive community. We put on the best game in the city because we have the best people in the city.

Every player on the field has something positive to contribute to each game. We do not tolerate ego, unsafe play, negativity, and toxic behavior. Players with a negative impact on the game and on the community will be warned and then banned.

Bring a red shirt and a white shirt. Teams will be assigned before hand based on player skill level and may be adjusted during play to maintain balance. Balls will be provided. Absolutely no slide tackling or unsafe play. Turf shoes must be worn - no studs allowed. 48 hour cancellation notice for guaranteed refund.


I certify that I am 18 years of age or older and that I have no known medical or other conditions that could interfere with my participation in Five Borough Futbol Club Meetup activities. I also understand and accept that the practice of soccer, both indoor and outdoor, involves certain risks of physical injury.

Therefore I, individually, hereby release and discharge, Five Borough Futbol Club Meetup Organizers and Co-organizers from any and all claims, actions, damages, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to any claims of negligence, arising out of, resulting from, by reason of, or in connection with my participation in any of Five Borough Futbol Club Meetup programs or activities.
