We will be going to see an excellent classical music concert in Washington Square Park in the Village, as part of their 61st Annual Music Festival this summer!
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 7:30 pm if you want to come early and relax and eat your own dinner, 8:00 for the concert itself. Please bring a sheet or chair to sit on!

Washington Square Park is the heart of Greenwich Village – located at the base of Fifth Avenue between MacDougal Street and University Place. Take the A/C/E, B/D/F trains to West 4th/Washington Square, the N/R to 8th Street or the Q to Union Square, or the 4/5/6 to Union Square or the 6 to Astor Place.
Arrive early, find a spot, bring a picnic! Bring your own blankets. They do have chairs, but they often get used up.
I will try and get a space for us in some of the grassy areas that surround the stage but if not we will try and save some seats for those coming late, to the extent possible!
Here is a map of the park from the park's website
COST: Free! I will also have some snacks on hand, but bring your own dinner!

Dinner, a blanket or chair, drinks,
I will be supplying some snacks, but bring dinner if you want to have some 'real food'.
