Hold! ANNUAL CHRISTMAS LUNCH

So how about Christmas in a speakeasy? I'm always on the hunt for something different and this seemed to be a novel way to celebrate Christmas, our group & history (genealogy). Meeting on the 2nd floor of Garfunkel's, a charming spot, named after two private bankers turned criminal fugitives, we will enjoy an afternoon tea set up. To mean we will have a beautiful selection of savories (sandwiches), sweets, scones, tea (vegetarian options included). It should make for a nice afternoon and we'll incorporate some genealogy aspects too into the mix. I'm suggesting you bring a photo (of interest to your family history), a new discovery, recommended research site, tip or request for recommended next step in research. Oh and to gain entry - it's a speakeasy after all - you need to enter via The Burgary...

The cost is $29 per person + tax and tip to bring it to all in $38. Alcoholic drinks (beer, wine, etc) are extra and are payable on the day. As I need to pay a deposit any requests for refunds will be only up to 48HRS from the event.

If the meetup system works you should see request for pre payment otherwise will need to post as a new meetup.

Look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

ABOUT GARFUNKEL'S
The speakeasy owes its name to the felonious private bankers-turned–criminal fugitives, Garfunkel & Tauster, who originally used the location as their corrupt bank firm in the 1920’s. To remind guests of the building’s exciting history, a functional bank vault door is used as the entrance into the wonderful Gatsby-esque speakeasy. ABOUT the AFTERNOON TEA
Amy Dubin is a tea importer and she conducts these popular afternoon teas. She shared some photos of past events and it seemed like a different way to bring the group together and make for a seamless experience.

    Bridget, I'm definitely coming and I was trying to add my daughter as a guest, but it won't let me- says I have to agree to the refund policy to RSVP, but I don't see any thing like that. Also, I'm not getting any pre-payment requests. Suggestions?

      Will look into as looking to gain pre payments as guaranteeing to card but may have to "play" with the meetup set up again - but fab your daughter is coming as well!

    I would like to go , but I am a vegetarian and not all meetup groups and / or restaurants are able to accommodate me especially if there is a set menu. Thank you

    • Bridget

      I haven't yet had a set menu as most restaurants have been flexible with a la carte. Either way will make sure vegetarian choices are on offer.

    Would like to attend and meet everyone as it is hard for me to make a lot of the meetings as I am in Westchester.

    June 21

    • Bridget

      Hope so too! It's always great to see regular and new faces!
