About Buffs And Brainiacs

This Is How Our Story Began


We often post events organized by NY Minute Dating and New York Social Network. In such cases, we will include the appropriate notation. We are in NO WAY affiliated with Cheeky Date or SpeedDate NY.


​​Like trivia? What about wine? Are you an art lover? A yogi? We've got you covered. Our goal is to create niche and larger-scale events to help people connect.  In addition to developing social events & activities open to the public, we also open our events up to select NYC Singles Meetup Groups. Our social events in NYC & Boston aren't just for singles, either. Unless otherwise noted, our networking events are open to all. We also organize events for LGBQT Professionals.

Some of our events will include:


Scavenger Hunts (MOMA, Grand Central, etc.)
Trivia Nights

Wine Tastings

Many of our NYC & Boston networking events cater to niche groups: Art Lovers, Ivy League Grads, International Professionals, Fitness Fans, Games & Mysteries Lovers, Wine Lovers, Singles, Singles Over 40 in NYC  & Boston, 50 & Over Professionals of NYC & Boston, etc.

We try to create networking opportunities for people who  wish to interact with peers with similar interests.
