On March 8th, Come Celebrate Greenjeans' 2nd Anniversary!

NYC offers all kinds of experiences and activities,
but I'll bet you've never been to a barn dance here before!

Barn Dance!
Thursday, March 8th
8-11 pm

The Hungarian House

213 E. 82nd Street (btw. 2nd and 3rd Ave. in Manhattan)
$15/$12 university students w/ID & seniors
Ages 18+
(due to NYC's liquor license laws, children are unfortunately not admitted)

Join Jae and I along with legendary fiddle players and contra dance callers Dudley & Jacqueline Laufman for an evening of spirited music, happy faces, and the most fun cardio workout you've ever had! (Contra dancing is like square dancing, but New England style.)

The space has a bar and cafe, so come and make a night of it. No experience or partner required!

Growing up in New Hampshire, the highlight of my summer was the Northwood Community Craftsmen's Fair, and the highlight of the fair was Dudley Laufman's contra dancing. (Well, and the sugar-coated homemade lollipops I only got to have once a year, but those helped with the dancing!)

I never imagined I'd get to see Dudley play in New York City. How lucky we are that he's coming just in time for our anniversary!

Our real birthday is March 9th (same as my Mom's), and we'll be in the shop, so stop by and say Hi if you can't make it to the dance. Maybe we'll even have birthday cake!

The Barn Dance is a regular event taking place every 2nd Thursday of the month at the Hungarian House and organized by NH native Dave Harvey. Check out their website to learn more.

Shine up your dancin' shoes,
and we'll see you at the dance!
