On Sunday April 1st at 6PM, my favorite 60's folksinger for the 21st Century, David Roth, will be performing at the Uptown Coffee House underneath the Nautical Museum on City Island. I went up to City Island on Super Bowl weekend for a dry run so to speak. The Museum wasn't open on Saturday but there certainly were plenty of restaurants to choose from and the lecture at the Public Library was quite interesting.
If you would like to join me for an afternoon escape from Manhattan, email me. If anyone says yes, I'll come down to Grand Central and meet in front of the Transit Museum at 2 o'clock. If you don't email me by noon, I will leave from 86th Street. Concert tickets are 15 dollars at the door. It is too late to get the pay in advance discount.
I will be returning to Manhattan the same way after the concert so for those of you who attend, we can return as a group.
Bring a MetroCard with at least 2 fares so you can get home on the bus and subway easily. We will wander through town and pay a visit to the Nautical Museum. Bring money to eat or drink or shop wherever you choose.
I still haven't seen the movie City Island but for those of you who would like to see it before you go, you can find a copy here.
NOTE: For those of you who want to go up on your own, you might also look at the BxM8 bus as a source of transportation. For those of you who will not be in NYC for this concert, here is David Roth's performance schedule.
