More Inauguration Events in New York City
I've been tracking a few Inauguration events for stay-at-home New Yorkers, including a screening at Wall Street's Trinity Church, an NYU screening, and a DL21C watching party in Times Square.
Time Out Magazine has a good round-up of events for the weekend, from a photo exhibit to a Huffington Post bloggers forum to various parties in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Note the events span Friday to Wednesday, and are not limited to THE BIG DAY (a.k.a. Inaugural Tuesday, Jan. 20).
[UPDATE (4:14 P.M.): The New York Examiner reports that the official New York Democratic Party Inaugural party will be at the Public House NYC on East 41st Street from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday night.]
If you know of other events, feel free to put them in the comments on this post. Through being incredibly persistent--she's been e-mailing me for weeks--a promoter from Frederick's Downtown has earned a shout-out for her event. Tegan Miller says, "We will have tons of drink specials and live coverage for the after parties and parades. This event will start after 5pm because most people will still be in work but it should be a really good time."
