The Rotary Club of Metro NYC is excited to offer our members and guests a diverse experience of Rotary fellowship. Each month, there are two formal meetings with a guest speaker, a cultural outing known as a Fireside Fourth, and at least one service opportunity. Please check our calendar to see what opportunities are in store for you.
Twice a month, RCMNYC holds formal dinner meetings at Playwright Tavern. Our guest speakers are drawn from the non-profit, professional, creative, or entrepreneurial fields. They share their experiences and help to broaden our understanding of a particular issue or industry.
In addition, our Times Square location means that our club frequently enjoys visits from Rotarians from all over the world. Check out our map showing club banners exchanged.
We meet at 7:00 pm on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. The Playwright Tavern is located at 202 West 49th Street, Third Floor. We are now asking guests to register and pay their meeting fee in advance using BrownPaperTickets. Please click here to view our profile, where you’ll find links to all available meetings and events. The advance-purchase meeting fee of $35 (plus the standard processing fee) includes a three course dinner. Meeting fees paid at the door are $40. All are welcome at the meeting, no invitation needed. To reserve your place at the table, please register two days (or earlier) before the meeting date. If you have further questions, please e-mail RSVP@rotarymetronyc.org.
RCMNYC took the Fireside Chat meeting format and ran with it! Each month our club has an outing, hosted by a club member, that explores NYC. Our members have been at the Stock Exchange closing bell, visited the Tenement, Subway, and Metropolitan Museums. We have played tennis, danced to Haitian Kompa, attended the Philharmonic, and much more. While typically a weekend activity, time, date, and cost can vary for these meetings.
Our club volunteers at least once a month at a number of places in NYC. Please see our volunteer page to see the options available to practice Service Above Self.
