Philharmonic & picnic in Central Park

  • Jul 15, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Location change: we'll be meeting near 3rd base of baseball field 4 on the Great Lawn; see this map: http://www.centralparknyc.org/assets/pdfs/maps/cpc_great_lawn_ballfields.pdf

I'm wearing a coral (orange) dress and a big floppy hat. I emailed my number to those signed up as of 3 p.m. Monday; if you didn't get it, email me thru the meetup site. Do not post a comment; I have a hard time with the meet up site on my phone. If you email me thru the site it goes to my personal email account.

Easiest way to get to it is to enter the park at 79th St. and Fifth Ave. on the East Side or 81st St. and Central Park West on the West Side. You'll see that it is the middle baseball field on the east side of the Great Lawn. And if you don't know where third base is, please google a baseball field diagram before Monday!

One of my favorite events of the year! Join us for a picnic on the Great Lawn of Central Park followed by a concert by the New York Philharmonic. I will get there at 5:30 and you can join us up till 7:30. (I believe the music starts at 8.) Bring a blanket and food or drink to share. (You may bring alcohol if you are discreet about it and of course don't drink too much.)

      You may, but do make sure to get there on the earlier side. If you arrive close to the start, there may not be room for you to set up your chair!
