NOTE: This is an order-at-the counter restaurant. Limited menu at breakfast. Let’s try something different! We’ll meet for Breakfast at Arepa Please in Brooklyn/ Riverside Area. This will be followed by a Broadway/Opera Concert at Friday Musicale. You can join for either or both. https://www.arepaplease.com
Doors open at 10:30. We’ll sit together if we are able. If not, sit where you can and we can visit after the concert.
I’ve been really missing my old neighborhood and attending hidden gems like Friday Musicale. They host FREE concerts for the area. The concerts are then followed by a complimentary assortment of nibbles, hot tea and coffee. Donations are always appreciated.
