Are you a New Yorker? Lucky you! If you are looking for a new way to make friends
and you want to be part of a community, The Lunch
Club is the place for you!
If you plan to visit New York City you're invited too!
Believing this organization would be a terrific connection for NYC visitors, SoloDining.com asked The Lunch
Club founder Jared Nissim if the organization was open to "outsiders." Here's his response:
I hadn't thought of marketing the Lunch Club to visitors since it's been all about locals meeting locals,
but I think it would be nice to have visitors from out of town :-)
The Lunch Club is a full-time community organization with over 1200 members in their 20's and 30's.
Many come to The Lunch Club because they have their daytimes free. Some are just in it for the dinners (The
Lunch Club After Dark).
Gatherings are hosted in the East Village or Lower East Side several times a week for lunch (or dinner), good
times and socializing.
You will always be introduced to the people around you and you're sure to make many new friends with similar
schedules. They encourage you to come alone!
Whatever your situation, they have gatherings that fit your schedule and hundreds of great people to meet, connect
and keep in touch with. They have a "Virtual Clubhouse" that makes it easy!
It's FREE to join! You just buy your own meal. To learn more about The Lunch Club and how it works, click: here
