Event Details

Socializing 6:30-8pm. Showtime 8pm: This event can be best described as the most social night of fun and laughter that you will ever have.  A NOTE FROM NYSN FOUNDER DAVE CERVINI: The number one question I get get from our members and friends at events is "How did you get started doing this?"  and my answer is simple..."I wanted to make friends in the city".

In 1997 (when I moved here) MeetUp and Facebook did not exist. After months of trolling the bars on the Upper West Side I realized that I needed to do something more constructive. I started to plan social events for local charities to make friends (and meet a woman, let's be honest).  After about 6 years of doing this as a hobby that I loved, I quit my job in the NYC Radio industry and started running Speed Dating events for 8 Minute then launched New York Social Network in 2004!

Now comes the fun part....

So, think about it, almost 20 years and thousands of events that bring people together who are from all over our city, country and the world, who now live, work or play in NYC!  This makes for some interesting stories!

Add to that all the reasons why people come out (to make friends, network, connect, find true love, hook up, try something new, do something they love or are just bored of what they are doing) and you have an entire book of fun, sad, heartwarming and disgusting stories  that will make you laugh and cry!

I have the honor of touching over a million people in the last 20 years with the activities that I have been involved with.  Most of it has been a great experience. But I never realized that I would also have to become a psychologist as well as an event planner when dealing with all these people!

What to expect:

-This is not a theater, it is an Irish pub

-This is NOT a comedy show but a story telling hour

-Doors open at 6:30pm for socializing food and drink.   We will sit everyone together who would like to eat at 7pm

-Fun ice breaker game so you get to meet others at the show.

-At 8pm you can find a seat or hang by the bar as we will get things going.  Seating is on a first come first served basis.

-The storytelling will last about 75 minutes where I will share how I got to be here as well as all the amazing things I have experienced over the years of planning these events which have resulted in..

Please note that this evening will contain graphic language and adult topics and situations.  Everything that will be presented actually happened!  I won't embellish on any story to make them more funny as they are already funny and unbelievable enough!

Can I come alone?  Yes 98% Of those attending will likely come on their own.  Feel free to bring guests if you would like.  Our staff will be on hand to welcome you and introduce you to others in the group.

Dress code: keep in nice and neat!

What is the atmosphere like?    It is not a theater with formal seating.  There are plenty of cocktail tables for you to sit at. There will also be space at the bar.

What happens after the show?  We will stay at Playwright drinks and conversations until they kick us out!

Cost: $10 in advance $15 at the door. ) Covers the room rental/set up and staff fees
