THE LAST DAYS OF GLORY DAYS.
DISCOUNTED ADMISSION TO MCNY! READ BELOW.
So you have read my wonderful reviews of this equally wonderful exhibit, and now you’re realizing, “Oh, crap. It’s December, and the exhibit is going to end soon. I better get myself uptown to the Museum of the City of New York before the exhibit is gone and I feel like an idiot.”
But if you need further incentive, Roger Kahn is coming back for another talk!
THURSDAY • DECEMBER 6 • 6:30 PM
Walter O’Malley, Horace Stoneham, and Robert Moses:
When the Dodgers and Giants Left
Roger Kahn, considered the dean of American sports writers, moderates an examination of the forces and personalities that led to the departure of the Dodgers and Giants 50 years ago this season. Kahn is joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnists Dave Anderson of The New York Times and Jimmy Breslin of New York Newsday, and Michael Shapiro, author of The Last Good Season: Brooklyn, the Dodgers, and Their Final Pennant Race Together (Doubleday, 2003). Reservations required. $9 for non-members of the Museum; $5 for members, seniors, and students.
And if that’s not incentive enough: if you’re tired of yelling invective at the television screen every time Steve Phillips says yet another idiotic thing on ESPN, he’ll ALSO be at MCNY:
TUESDAY • DECEMBER 11 • 6:30 PM
Wait ‘till Next Year: What’s the Future of the Yankees and the Mets?
For New York fans, the 2007 baseball season was full of heartbreak (the Mets’ regular-season collapse), redemption (the Yankees’ struggle to the post-season) and consternation (Joe Torre’s move to the LA Dodgers). But what about next year? Len Berman, sports anchor for NBC 4 News, will moderate a discussion about the past and future of the Yankees and Mets with fellow sports anchors Ducis Rodgers, of CBS 2 News; Steve Phillips, ESPN Baseball Analyst and former General Manager of the Mets; and 40-year New York sports veteran Sal Marchiano, of CW11 News. Reservations required. $9 for non-members of the Museum; $5 for members, seniors, and students.
But here’s the kicker: Metsgrrl.com readers can get reduced admission to MCNY! You can get admission to both of these talks for the low, low price of $5. That’s what members, seniors and students pay. You can get the reduced admission by calling MCNY to make a reservation and when you do, mention metsgrrl.com and you’ll get in for $5!
