What we're about

Our Group Mission is:

1. Bring together a group of people who love to explore NYC. Our group is dedicated especially to people in NYC looking to make new friends and connections by enjoying in and out of town trips and then sample the local nightlife of NYC! There is so much to do in New York and we plan to bring you best of a variety of events.

2. If we can't host/plan and event, we still want to be your source for great things to do in NYC. We will be sending out a daily email of the Top Things To Do each day(most will be free too!). The email will also be archived on our message board so people can comment and gather there. If we cant host the event ourselves, we still hope members can reach out and get together. ****Please not if you do not wish to receive our daily email, you can adjust your settings so you do not get the email ***

We are all about fun, social, and networking. Events will be in a melting pot of different things, kinda like our great city. Look forward to meeting you!

The Sean Connery Bond Canon, Pt II: Dr. No & From Russia with Love Webinar

Click link for full info and to get tickets ($10, thanks for your support!): http://bit.ly/BondConneryVirtualEvent *** Please note RSVPs on Meetup do not reflect the correct amount of people who will be there. We promote this in various groups and always draw a nice mix of people! *** Description: Later this year, the 25th James Bond film will be released, No Time to Die, starring Daniel Craig. Though he and many other great actors have played the iconic 007 role over the decades, the majority of Bond aficionados still consider the first, Sean Connery, to be the definitive James Bond. It's time to uncover the secrets of this masterful spy series, and determine the greatest Bond films and actors once and for all! Join our special guest hosts for a two-part retrospective on the very first four James Bond films, which are widely considered the best in the entire Bond series to-date. Led by esteemed Bond scholar and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer, part I of this multimedia overview — which will focus on the first two Connery Bond films, Dr. No (1962) and From Russia with Love (’63) — will include: > The origin story of the Bond series, and how it was adapted from Ian Fleming's spy novels of the 1950s to match the unique symbols and scenarios of the 1960s > How the Scottish Sean Connery — former bodybuilder and newcomer to the silver screen — landed the coveted role of the iconic British secret service agent > Why Terence Young, director of Dr. No and From Russia with Love, is perhaps more responsible for the shaping of the cinematic version of Bond than the original character in Ian Fleming's novels > Deep analysis of each film, including why — and how — a Caucasian actor portrayed the Asian Dr. No, and why From Russia with Love should be considered the “first” Bond film instead of Dr. No > Behind-the-scenes film clips, production stills, advertising, and promotional materials Afterward, we'll have a Q&A with Arlen — any and all questions about Bond are welcomed and encouraged!
