We will be going to see an excellent classical music concert in Central Park, at the Naumberg Bandshell. Also, before and during the concert, people can bring dinner and eat together. I hope to see you for the event!
I will bring some light snacks for all, but please bring dinner if you want substantive food. We are meeting at 7pm if you want to come early and relax and eat your own dinner, 7:30 for the concert itself. Please bring a sheet or chair to sit on!
