What we're about

Because we are smart enough to know how to have fun through unique events! So what are people saying about the New York Brainiacs?

"Wow, that event looks AMAZING!", "Oh my, I have never heard of that kind of event before!", "Where do you come up with these ideas, they are incredible"

We get together for fun and unique events including trivia nights, visiting museums, art galleries, classes, wine tastings, music, social mixers, parties, theater, walking tours, scavenger hunts, and more.

Our events are casual and fun with plenty of opportunity for socializing. Anyone can join. Most of our members are single, but it is not a requirement. If your plans change, all we ask is that you please update your RSVP's at least 24 hours before an event.
