Weeknights are easier to secure a venue -- most organizations I belong to schedule things for weeknights for that reason. Otherwise, we'd be sharing a crowded space with obnoxious hipsters or we'd have to pay a large cover fee to have a room by ourselves. Also, weeknights accommodate the people who work in Manhattan but don't live there, or who aren't in town on the weekends. People who don't live here are not gonna come into the city for a couple of drinks on a weekend, especially in the summer when no one's here! There are other poly events on other days of the week, and -- weekends are for more artsy things! LOL.
If you want a poly event on weekends and don't find one to your liking, you could start your own Meetup!
