Meetup on the Orient Express is our signature trip. Tracing the old Orient Express route, we visit 6 countries! It's an unforgettable escape, the trip of a lifetime! This event was sold out months ago and now we were able to add a few more spots. You have to act fast though! If you want to grab one of these few spots, book by April 8th!

The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!

This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The Original Orient Express no longer exists, but this journey will mirror elements of the original route from Paris to Istanbul. We are re-creating the experience using modern trains and conveniences.

Venice 2 days
Vienna 2 days
Prague 2 days
Budapest 2 days
Istanbul 3 days

Included: train or air travel between the 6 cities, transfers to hotels, train stations or airports, guided tours in each city, one or more meals a day, museum entrances, wine tasting and much more!
In addition, many other options and extras are included.

The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The original Orient Express is but a memory. And we are bringing back the best parts.

EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul built in 1882 with it's grandeur and opulence.

*TO ATTEND CLICK ON TICKET LINK BOLDED IN FULL EVENT DESCRIPTION (Multiple Meetup groups co-organizing so the RSVP's shown are just a very small portion of the total members attending. Space is limited so get tickets ASAP. )

Looking to do something different on a Friday night? We have put together a fantastic night of fun, socializing, learning, playing, eating and drinking at Big Deal Casino Academy, (the only licensed Casino School in New York State).

There is no where else in Manhattan where you will be able to have an experience like this. It is really one of the best social events that we host. Whether you know how to play some of these games or never stepped foot in a casino, join us!

*GET TICKETS AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/casino-night/dates/ ($100 value for just $39!!)

What to expect:
We have rented out the event space for Big Deal Casino Academy exclusively for our members and friends to enjoy a casual night in a casino setting. They have a bar, food and 13 gaming tables. At the beginning of the night come to socialize, grab a drink or something to nibble on, play some of our icebreaker games and then head to one of the gaming tables.

You will be given $2,000 in chips to play with (no cash value and no cash awarded) but those who wind up with the most chips at the end of the night will win prizes! Instructors will be on hand to explain the games, walk you through how to play then let you actually play using real chips!

You can also go from one table to the next. There will be Poker, Craps, Baccarat, Roulette and Black Jack. If you get tired of playing there will be plenty of people to socialize with.

What is included? Fee includes room rental, instructors and dealers and Meetup staff on hand to help you navigate the night and the games.

Is this a real Casino? No, it is a school where they train people to work as dealers for Casinos. They are the only one in New York State. We have rented the space to use for a private party for our members and friends.

Do we play with real money? No, we give you $2,000 in chips that you can play with at any of the tables. There is no cash value and if you bust we'll give you more!

Do I need to know how to play any of these games? NO! That is the whole point of the evening. Come, have a drink, socialize and you can hop from table to table and the dealer student/graduate will teach you how to play Craps, Poker, Roulette, Black Jack, Bacarrat & more.

If I know how to play already is it distracting to have them teaching? No, they are really good at having experienced players enjoy themselves.

Describe the atmosphere? This is a large space on the 6th floor of an office building. They have it nicely decorated because they do private events there. There is a cash bar and they also have light appetizers for sale. When you arrive we will greet you and introduce you to others. We'll figure out where you want to start and get you going! Throughout the night you will be able to switch tables, take a break at the bar, play our icebreaker games and win prizes!

Who is attending? 21 and over. We usually get a good mix of ages.

Can I come alone? Yes, most will be attending on their own.
