• Every Thursday from 8:30pm to 1am the Couchsurfers of NYC, both locals and travelers, get together. To attend this meeting you *don't* have to actually host or surf... if you have a profile on the website, you are welcome! NON-CS friends are also welcome! Introduce them to the events and meetings part of Couchsurfing.

    The weekly meetup is a great place to
    - get some tips on non-touristic sights from locals
    - get to know other perspectives about Couchsurfing from around the world
    - find people to hang out with and make plans for the weekend
    - find a last-minute couch or future travel companions
    - meet your hosts/guests before deciding to share accommodation with them
    - get references and friends for your profile
    - discuss safety, verification levels, or how to use all the information from the website
    - just have a good time with all these friends that you haven't met yet.

    PLEASE READ ALL OF THE RULES AND ADVICE BELOW. Thanks! :)

    PLEASE REMEMBER TO TIP

    In the US, the customary tip is $1 per drink at the bar, and 15-20% of the bill for food or table service. If we get a reputation being cheap with tips, we will not get good service, and if it is bad enough, the bar will not invite us back.

    \___/ \___/ \___/ \___/ \___/ \___/ \___/

    IMPORTANT RULES:

    1. THE MINIMUM AGE TO ENTER THE BAR IS 21. BRING PICTURE IDENTIFICATION that shows that you are at least 21 years old OR THE DOORMAN WILL NOT LET YOU IN.

    2. Do not take your drinks outside the bar (you WILL get fined for public drinking).

    3. Couchsurfing is a place to make friends, not to find a date.
