Summertime Kick-off at Antoines: Rooftop Garden, Sunset and BBQ TOO!!

Hi All,


To kick-off the official start of summer, Antoine has generously offered a meetup on his rooftop garden.

Even more generously, he has offered use of his bbq grill so we can have a good eats in the midst of a lush garden and a beautiful sunset.

Deits:  The event is potluck and perhaps we can organize so that some people bring grillable foods, some bring "drinks" (with and without alcohol) and some snacks.

Location is in NYC on the east side and exact address will be sent to all who rsvp.

Please keep in mind space is limited to 27 people, if you rsvp and are unable to attend, please change your rsvp so others in the group can attend.

Lastly, we discussed a possible seedling exchange, but as most people will be coming for work, I don't think this will work (unless anyone suggests otherwise).

See you all there and stay tuned for additional rooftop events being planned.  July and August dates!

    By the way it's my private penthouse... it's not a rooftop garden...don't be wrong. Don't ask the doorman the roof top...we don't have one. That would be weird. Thanks
