So we’ve talked about this for a while among various subgroups and we’re just going to do it! So please join us for the INAUGURAL NYC REEDIES WITH KIDS GET TOGETHER! We’re not absolutely sure what we mean by this so let’s start as big and wide as possible! So if you
Currently have children at home of any age
Have ever had children at home of any age
Are interested in having children at home (or elsewhere) of any age
Or used to be interested in having children at home (or elsewhere) of any age
Or are interested in hanging out with folks that fall into one of these categories
Or just want to hang out with Reedies
Or just want to eat some REALLY GOOD OLD AND NEW FASHIONED ICE CREAM!!!
Come join us Sunday, June 24th at 3 PM at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain, located at 513 Henry St., Brooklyn, NY 11231 at Sackett St. As the New York Magazine shares, “Exceedingly kid-friendly soda fountain lets moms and dads (and grandmas and grandpas) share with their progeny the Proustian thrill of their childhood desserts.”
As they go on to state, “Odds are, your kid hasn’t heard of an egg cream. Peter Freeman and Gia Giasullo, the city’s foremost champions of old-school dessert, are out to change that…Sodas are all made with Farmacy's own syrups; ice cream comes from Adirondack Creamery, small, all-natural producer; and the rotating menu of house-made cupcakes, pies, and even red-velvet Twinkies changes daily.”
They also have some sandwiches and mac and cheese, but the focus here is on dessert!!! As I mentioned there have been various folks interested in starting a Reedies with Kids group, so let’s meet and discuss. We can figure out what we want to do and who we might want to do it with (who knows, maybe we’ll end up with several groups (e.g. have kids 0-7, have kids 8-13, have kids 14-18, have kids 19-28,…). But most of all let’s get together and have egg creams, milk shakes and sundaes! And remember, as my brother shares, “Milkshakes are not dessert, they’re a beverage!”
So please join us for the Inaugural New York City Reedies with Kids Get Together on June 24th at 3:00 PM at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain! Come by to eat, chat, visit, and discuss the alumni chapter and future events! RSVP if you wish to Brian Graham-Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you can’t make it but are interested in the idea of the group, drop Brian a line as well! See you there!
