After 18 years in the New York radio industry, NYSN founder Dave Cervini launched the New York Social Network.  Now after planning social events and gatherings in NYC for over 22 years he has some pretty interesting stories to tell!  Join Dave  for a casual storytelling night where he will share some of his favorite memories that include funny, shocking, heartwarming and some not so nice things that have happened over the years.

Dave has had the honor of touching over a million people in the last 20 years with the activities that he has been involved with.  Most of it has been a great experience.

What to expect:

-This a storytelling hour (not a comedy show).

-Doors open at 6:30pm for socializing, appetizers and cocktails.

-Fun icebreaker game so you get to meet others at the event.

-At 7pm 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…

The Good

  • Amazing friendships and connections
  • 90 marriages
  • Awesome adventures throughout NYC and the world
  • Hundreds of thousands of dollars and volunteer time given to charities
  • Once in a lifetime experiences
  • Lasting memories

and The Bad…

  • The bad events
  • The socially awkward moments and people
  • Gossiping and fights
  • Hookups and breakups
  • The dumb things we do when alcohol is involved
  • Covid
Cost: $15  (VIP members $10) Covers the room rental/set up and staff fees

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!

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.


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

Dress Code:  Casual

Ages: 21+
