The sunset over the Hudson River from Riverside Park is stunning.  Join us for an after work picnic where you can sit back, relax and socialize with others in this beautiful setting just 2 blocks from the 79th Street subways.

What to expect:

  • A few dozen easygoing members and friends will gather in the grassy area next to the old 79th Street Boat Basin Café on the Hudson River.
  • Our staff members will be on hand ready to welcome and introduce you to others in the group.
  • We will have several ice breaker games with prizes.
  • Fun activities like Frisbee, bocce ball, a cup stacking race, egg toss, card games, and more!
  • A beautiful view of the sun setting over the Hudson River.
  • Bring your own food and beverages.  If bringing “adult” beverages, you will need to be very discreet. (PRO TIP: there are several restaurants, delis, and diners at 79th and Broadway (the subway stop)
  • The best time to arrive will be between 6:30 pm-7:30 pm for maximum socializing and games.
  • Be sure to bring something to sit on such as a blanket, folding chair, or towel.

Cost: $15 ($10 for VIP members) goes for the staffing, games and prizes.  It also means that you are more likely to show up!

How do I get there? The #1 train stops at 79th and Broadway.  It is then a 2-minute walk to the river.

What if it rains? If the weather is bad we will reschedule or cancel and send refunds.

Recommended ages:  21+.  The main demographic will be 30s and 40s but there will be many 20s and even 50s so those folks will feel right at home.

Can I come alone? Yes, most guests do! It’s a great way to meet new people.
