Jazz-Age Lawn Party

Let's meet at 11:45 at the ferry departure point in Manhattan... the ferry should leave every half hour, so we'll take the noon ferry. If you don't make it there in time, we can meet up on the island itself! Call me if you need to- [masked]

My dress is cream colored with lots of sequins and has black tassels at the bottom.  (Also- It looks like a lot of people bring picnicking things, like blankets and snacks. but no booze allowed!)

Who wouldn't want to live out the Great Gatsby for a day? Best part- everyone gets dressed up in period clothing. $15 advance tickets. Thought we could head over to Gov island together around noon. Let me know if there's interest!
