HOW THE PARTY WORKS: Everyone wears a name tag, but instead of putting your name, you put your occupation (it is a networking party after all). The name-tags are also color-coded so you know who is single (in case that is on one's agenda). Regularly attended by hundreds of great guys, this is the one monthly event NYC Gays dare not miss.

This party is sponsored by Why Weight, where "shift happens"! The Why Weight Transformation Program is an all-natural, safe and effective way to help burn fat, raise metabolism, and improve overall health. They are committed to helping you get to your goal weight and beyond. Choose Happy! Choose Healthy!

SPECIAL THANKS to Global Brands Group for participating in this event for the 9th year in a row. Their donation of the Superhero Underwear and Sleepwear (sometimes one of a kind pieces) is so appreciated. We love you GBG!
