June's approaching and I wish I could be in New York cause soon it will be time for the Jazz Age Lawn-Party on Governor Island again!
Do you remember the magnificent photos of last editions?
Well, this year while waiting for the Party, you have another date to save cause the State of New York has cut funding for programming on Governors Island. While the island will thankfully remain open, there will be no funding provided for entertainment on the island and at this moment there are not the necessary funds to provide a dance floor and stage for the 2009 Jazz Age Lawn-Party, so this Sunday will be held a fundraiser gala.
Featuring Michael Arenella and His 12-piece Dreamland Orchestra, this promises to be an enthralling night of music, dancing, cocktails and treats. A silent auction will be held featuring items from: Ellen Christine Millinery, Cassie MacGregor Millinery, Bumble & Bumble, Olive’s Very Vintage, Lori Mclean Jewelry, OK Cigars, Cercle Rouge Restaurant (Tribeca), Duane Park Restaurant (Tribeca), Flatiron Lounge, Hey Sailor! Hats, Cobblestones Vintage, and others. Handmade chocolates will be sold from local chocolatier Chocolate Meurens. A wide variety of wine, prosecco and cocktails will be served by expert mixologists at our open bar courtesy of Hendricks Gin and D.O.C Wine Shop, as well as complimentary hors d’oeurves from gourmet charcuterie Stinky Brooklyn.
So, take advantage of the long weekend (Monday is Memorial Day!) and attend the Dreamland Gala in your finest Roaring Twenties evening wear!
It will be held at the enchanting Green Building , a 19th-century warehouse nestled along the banks of the Gowanus Canal, in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Located at 450 Union Street, it is just a short walk from the following major subway lines:
- F/G to Carroll Street
- R to Union Street

Sunday, May 24th 2009, 9 p.m.
$30 (includes open bar, hors d’oeurves, and live entertainment!).
If you're in New York, please don't miss it!
