The Until We Meet Again Tour – 25 August 2016, part 2

An effort to take the Until We Meet Again Tour to Governors Island in honor of the centennial of the National Parks failed because of timing. A trip to the Brooklyn Museum ensued. An exhibit of approximately 230 photographs related to sports, Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present, proved inspiring and enjoyable.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 23 August 2016

The Until We Meet Again Tour played three venues today.

First the tour visited Kirsh Bakery and Kitchen for a conversation with Bob Brashear.

The second stop involved a wonderful, touching farewell party at the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations.

The evening gig included Tricia, son Sean, and nephews Adam and Bryan for dinner at Frankies 570 Spuntino.
