Trio! SOHO Stroll, John Lennon's Birthday Art Show, Drinks at The Ear Inn!

This happening includes three experiences: a guided walk through SOHO, followed by a special exhibit of the visual art of John Lennon in celebration of his 73rd birthday (October 9th). Here's a link about the exhibit which indicates that there is a suggested (not required) donation of $3 to benefit City Meals on Wheels.

After the exhibit we'll head West on Spring Street to one of the oldest working bars in New York - The Ear Inn, housed in an 18th century building.

SOHO has experienced many stages – back in the 1800’s it was New York’s first red light district packed with risqué entertainment, and in more recent times it became known as “hells hundred acres” before its transformation into an artist and gallery district in the 1970’s. Today it has become New York City’s most popular area for shopping with both native New Yorkers and visitors alike!

SOHO is also a residential extraordinary neighborhood that is unlike any place on the planet! We'll go back in time to the to the Iron Age – where you will experience the magnificent cast iron architecture that makes SOHO a visual feast.  In fact, there is no other place that has this many and varied 19th century cast iron buildings.  You will see the building that had the first passenger elevator, along with the site of the first Broadway theatre that staged a musical, fantastic residences and celebrity addresses.  Join us to experience both the busy and quiet of a very special New York City neighborhood, and you will know why it is a destination for both shopping and living!

    After I arrived late, I just ended up going straight to check out the John Lennon art exhibit. Great art, I enjoyed it. Glad to donate money to meals on wheels too.

    Forecast remains cloudy but low chance of rain between 4pm and 6pm according to the weather web sites. Full steam ahead, I will try and bring some cheer to this dreary day. If you coming please be prepared for rain and we can always shorter the walk and head for the exhibits and galleries!

    I'm worry about the same thing. What if there's heavy rain? I don't mind raining but if it rains heavy, I'll give my chance to other people.

    i seemed to have double booked - and since forecast looks iffy i'm going to cancel - hopefully someone who doesnt mind "bad hair" will be able to take my place :)

    Looking at forecast coupled with distance I need to travel best I open up a spot for someone who can take advantage of Hank s very popular meetups. Someday the stars and moon will align for me!

    One other housekeeping note. Members have requested that people refrain from posting comments that are more appropriately directed at me, your organizer that you can send to me via our group's website which then comes to me via email. These comments typically include laments about being on the waiting list, reasons for cancelling, etc.

    Thank you for your cooperation. PS - I will be starting a Facebook group for our Meetup very shortly.
