French Picnic@Roosevelt Island HUNGER GAME - FREE OUTDOOR Movie

Jam PACK FUN SUMMER SATURDAY!!

NYC-LIC-Roosevelt Island walking tour plus first outdoor Hunger Game Movie on Roosevelt Island PICNIC

(Beat that ERIC! Well, to be truthful, it was Eric's walking tour + eating that has inspired me! So, thanks to Eric, this is now possible. He has you well trained! Whoooahhha! Oh, also like to thank LEAH for recommending this FRENCH MARKET on 1st Avenue and 62.5 street.)

http://www.marchedusud.com/menus/lunch/

We MEET at 1136 FIRST AVENUE, Marche Du Sud, to pick up our French picnic supplies or sandwiches, pizza, or $15 salads + beverages = $20 DINNER. Hey, it's FREE MOVIE! And we are doing this picnic with class. Oui. Keeping you fit and healthy!

****Every one ought to bring a blanket, shawl, or waterproof fancy shower curtain to sit on at Roosevelt. Did I say with class?

*The walking tour starts at 4:30pm promptly from Marche du Sud in Manhattan, and we will be walking across (or if you are late, you will have to walk by yourself, Entrance is on East 60th Street, midway between First and Second Avenues)


*the 59th STREET BRIDGE, aka Queensboro Bridge (FUN FACT: you know this song ... "FEELING GROOVY" ! Spontaneous song singing along bridge highly encourage for this group outing!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_59th_Street_Bridge_Song_(Feelin'_Groovy)

"The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world". -The Great Gatsby)


*to Long Island City (aka Queens)
circuitously to Roosevelt Island
find good spot to picnic and eat while waiting for movie~
Once movie starts, it may be too dark to see what you are eating!

Give $2 meet-up fee to Lily then.


Trivia for the HUNGER GAME movie starts at 7pm where they reveal every thing already -- so, you have all seen this movie before, right?

(for those who just want to join us for the MOVIE, yep, there's the $2 meet-up fee still, and come find out group -- you'll surely recognize some one, just comment below so we won't wait for you in Manhattan!)


Apres the movie, we will all WALK to hop on the F train from Roosevelt Island, no round trip hike that night.

    If it rains, it will happen @ 6pm, where we can go into buildings in LIC to hide out, ok? Show up, people! This is a once in a lifetime group thing to do together. [masked] if you change your mind and want to show up.

    UPDATE: http://rioc.ny.gov/pdf/SMS2013.pdf

    Hunger Game is showing only on this date -- there is no rain expected at night, am predicting ;-), besides, our blanket to put over the grass is a fancy shower curtain (waterproof), right?

    If you do miss this -- other movies are listed here for you to go with your own group:

    Hi Lily, the weather forecast for this Saturday: scattered thunderstorms possible. If so, will this be cancelled or you got another back-up plans in the event of rain?

    June 25, 2013

    • Lily

    Sounds like a recipe for a great day: a picnic in a park with awesome views, Roosevelt Island, trivia, and of course, Jennifer Lawrence. What more could one ask for ;)? Looking forward to it and meeting everyone! :)

  • Kathy C.

    So if I haven't seen the movie yet, I probably shouldn't come because of the trivia part?

    2 · May 15, 2013

    • Lily

      SOLUTION: For those who haven't seen the movie, make sure YOU STEP away when they announce "TRIVIA" at 7pm. Come back in about 15-20 minutes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
