Note: Due to the great response to the first party (filled up within two days, before a note was even sent out!), our group is now having a second party a week later :-) Let's celebrate New York Philosophy's one year anniversary! Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, we can grill, drink some wine, and philosophize under the stars! I am throwing two parties - a week apart. Please RSVP 'yes' for only one party or the other :-) This is a potluck party. Everyone has the following options - toss in $10, or toss in $5 and bring a food item to share! I would prefer it if most people can bring food items, but for those who cannot, that is okay! The funds will be used to buy griilling items, pizzas, and snacks. And this event is BYOB - and that stuff has a tendency to disappear :-). Does a bottle of wine count as a shareable item? After discussions, our feeling is that if a member is not going to drink, then a bottle of wine is a good contribution. But if a member is planning on drinking their own wine, then two bottles is needed :-). It's up to the discretion of the organizer at the door, but since the extra $5 goes to the disabled, it is usually not too controversial a point. Obviously a bottle of liquor counts as shareable; otherwise, at least I have a couch for that member! Feel free to show up as early as 7, and these parties usually go until 3 in the morning, so drop in anytime in the evening. Since there will be so many people, if you'd like to come early and leave early, or come later and leave later, that is fine! Or, stay the whole time! This fund-raiser is for New York Philosophy's chosen philanthopic recipient - the Mickey Mantle school in Upper West Side. Hope to see you there! John
