Join FFIR Greg to hear the Carlos Henriquez Octet, one of the great Latin jazz ensembles in the world, at Dizzy’s Club at Lincoln Center, one of the most beautiful jazz clubs in NYC. Music starts at 9:30, but we will get there early (8:45) to get a good table, enjoy the spectacular view of Columbus Circle and Central Park, and order some food and soft drinks. Spaces are limited. Meet in C3 Lobby at 8:00 PM.
FFIR Lorena invites you to join her at Twig for a class about plants! Learn alllllll about houseplants as we discuss the different types, how to maintain them, repot them, and how to propagate! Of course, you'll be learning hands-on as you plant your own houseplant family. You'll be taking two planters home with you - enough for the most adorable little arrangement designed to thrive in any shady to indirect-sun locale - even artificial light! Carry bag and hand-out provided as well. Request a spot here!

Join RA Lauren in attending a screening of the film Class Divide, sponsored by the NYU Center for Student Life's Service Film Series! Class Divide is a great 2016 documentary that explores the widening gap of inequality in the West Chelsea neighborhood of New York, focusing on an intersection where an elite private school sits directly across the street from public housing projects. There will be plenty of free food and discussion of related volunteer opportunities!
Surprise your family and friends by sending them a NYC postcard through the actual mail (not email)! Stop by the C3-lobby to say hi to FFIR Lorena and her dog Lucia. They will provide you with a selection of postcards and stamps. All you have to do is write your note. She will even mail the postcard for you!
Join RAs Sophia and Alex for a picnic and walk in the Ramble in Central Park, followed by a lunch-time picnic. Described by Frederick Law Olmsted as a "wild garden", the Ramble's maze of trails amidst its abundant flora and fauna contrasts spectacularly with the formality of nearby attractions. The walking route is about 1.5 miles and will take around 2 hours.
Join RA Lauren for a visit to the Fashion Institute of Technology's Museum! The new exhibition "Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color" showcases men’s, women’s, and children’s pink clothing from global cultures — including India, Africa, Mexico, and Japan — in a historical context, exploring popular misconceptions, symbolic codings, and evolving perspectives of the color. In addition to the clothing and accessories on display, there is an installation of pink toys, dress-up clothes, and other gendered products dating from the 1950s to the present. After coming back to Carlyle, we'll discuss the exhibit over slices of homemade mille crepe cake! Spots are limited, sign up below!
