03/26/2019 - Twenties Only Networking Night: Eat, Drink, Mix, Mingle, Socialize, Network & Connect

Our Age Specific Networking Nights are a special series of casual social gatherings where we ask that participants are respectful of the age guideline that is posted for that particular night.  It is a fun and casual way to meet others in our group who are from your generation.   The Playwright Irish Pub on 35th street is centrally located and very accessible from all subways.  They have a cozy lounge on the 2nd floor that we will use for our gathering.  The drinks are affordable and the food is excellent.  Here is how it works:  

  • Arrive at The Playwright between 6:30-7:30pm for cocktails and socializing at the bar.
  • Our NYSN host will be on hand to welcome you and introduce you to others in the group.
  • We will have a section of the lounge set aside for our group. (look for the signs)
  • There will be a fun ice breaker game at 7:15pm with prizes.
  • You can come for one drink or stay longer and grab a bite with your new friends, it's up to you.
  • Our host will see who is interested in sitting down for dinner (separate checks) around 7:30pm.
 
If you are new to the group this is a good event to come to since you will be surrounded by people you can relate to.  It will also be a slightly smaller group (20-30 people) than our larger parties.  It will be easier to have conversations.

Funny Women of a Certain Age Comedy is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all. They’ve raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work. Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.  A comedy show for the ages. Female comics who tell it like it is cause they just don't give a crap anymore.  We have purchased a block of 10 seats for this show which features our own Tracie Jayne. (one of our NYSN hosts). ...read more...
