Historic Tour of the Apollo Theater
253 West 125th Street, New York, NY, USA 10027
Organizer: John Ciferni
When: Saturday, November 9th Arrival time: 10:30 a.m.
Tour Begins: 11 am (last about 1- 1 1/2 hours)
Please plan on arriving that the theater 20 MINUTES EARLY. You will need to purchase your ticket and get settled first. The tour starts promptly at eleven! Individual weekend tickets are $18.00 for the tour but if we have twenty people or more tickets will drop to $16.00 per person.
Additionally, I am asking for each person to bring one additional dollar to give to me at the start of the meet up. This money is used to cover the costs of having a group on the meetup website.
Let's eat and discuss our experiences-
After the historic tour of the Apollo, I obtained a number of recommendations on a few places that we could go for lunch. Harlem has a number of traditional soul food resturants. The following were recommended by the Apollo when I called today:

Manna's Resturant- website under construction.
I think this will be a great event and should be a blast! Check out the website for more historical information on the Apollo: http://www.apollotheater.org/about/history
