Second Tuesday at Dempsey's: Our 7th Anniversary Party!

  • Feb 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We've made it through another year and that calls for a celebration! So join us where it all began for this group as we celebrate our 7th anniversary as a meetup at Dempsey's.

This group was launched Feb. 7, 2007 to support the Irish music scene in New York and provide a social outlet for fans of that music. About a month later, it met for the first time at Dempsey's for the Tuesday night open traditional Irish session (see photo below). There have been some ups-and-downs over the years, many people have come and gone, but 400-odd meetup events and nearly 1,300 members later, we continue to fulfill that mission. And the Tuesday night session at Dempsey's remains our flagship event.

So join us to celebrate seven years of good times and good music at Dempsey's on this night. Flutist Linda Hickman is the special guest and she usually brings some very talented friends along, and there will be some drink specials and plenty of good craic to go around. If you've never been to one of our meetups before or haven't been to one recently, it's a good chance to get re-acquainted with the group and help make sure it sticks around for another 7 years.

See you there!

    Happy Anniversary to us! Great night of tunes and camaraderie, thanks to everyone who braved the cold for this and to Sheila for that amazing cake.

    Great time as always! My only complaint is that I was too late for the cake. Tom Dunn and Liz had the group play some old tunes I love to hear.

      Jerry, It gets very crowded by 8:00. Getting there early assures that you get a good seat. It also gives you an opportunity to meet other people from the group, which is the whole point of Meetup.

      H-m-m-m. I may have been thinking of Baby Peggy rather than Shirley Temple.

    It might have been cold outside, but there was plenty of warmth inside Dempsey's tonight!

    There is a chance I may not be able to make it to this... for several reasons. I will change my RSVP as early as I can if not able to get there.

      I was still trying to make it tonight, but Ive had to push up a road trip to tomorrow b/c of impending bad weather, lots to do to get ready before tomorrow... work, pack, etc.
