Upcoming Events

1. Lower East Side Multi Ethnic Food Tour

Feeling peckish on a Sunday morning? Been awhile since you've visited the LES during the day?

Join us for a walking tour that highlights the people, history, culture and food of the LES. Delicious tastings included!

Mingle with other Young Professionals on this tour, led by award winning guides from 'Big Onion', that combines the history of the diverse LES with a series of small food sampling, or “noshing” stops from local shops and markets emphasizing the neighborhoods of the Jewish East Side, Little Italy and Chinatown. Food tastings are vegetarian or dairy. We’ll end the tour with happy hour at a local bar 

Sunday May 4, 2014, 1PM - 4PM. Tickets and full details here.


2. Volunteer at Project ORE

Do you work or live near the East Village? We are certain this will be the best hour and half of your day.

Serve lunch and socialize with seniors at Project ORE: Spend time with seniors who are homeless or marginally housed, socially isolated and/or mentally ill.

Monday – Friday, 11:30 -1:00.

Come once or come regularly. Come by yourself and meet other volunteers or make it a team outing and bring your colleagues.

Must sign up, subject to availability, so please contact Amy Stollmack at 646-395-4089 or if you are interested.
