I've made a reservation for Sunday 4 Dec at 12:30pm. Now while the restaurant is Italian there is a neat historical twist. For those not familiar with Palma in the East Village (Cornelia St and Bleecker) there is in fact an early 1800s carriage house behind the restaurant! It is now used from time to time for private events and so we should have an opportunity to briefly tour it that day and gain some background on it. Palma offers great cuisine and the prices appear reasonable ($12 + up) - so thought wouldn't it be neat to have a little history woven into our festive lunch. We can always round up the experience with a "last call" into another historic landmark "McSorleys". Look forward to seeing you there!
Another great idea from a member of our group: likely some / most of you have read a book of late that was for interest about a point in history or helped expand your research into your family history. Why not share a review of such a book while we enjoy a festive lunch.
