BLOHARDS/Red Sox Trophy Reception
The Red Sox team did their part – and now the Red Sox organization and the BLOHARDS are combining forces to throw a World Series Trophy viewing party. Behind enemy lines…right here in New York City. Soon!
Where: Union League Club, 38 East 37th Street (just west of Park Avenue)
When: Thursday, November 21, 2013
What Time: 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Program: A brief program of speakers, music, and trivia begins at 6:15 p.m. Dr. Charles Steinberg, Ed Randall, Gov. Wertz, and John Pizzarelli are in the mix. John Quinn with Sox World Series trivia and prizes. And…the WORLD SERIES TROPHY.
Price: $50 for BLOHARDS members reserving in advance, $60 for non-members or walk-ups. There will be passed hors d’oeuvres until 7:30, as well as a cash bar. Pay via credit card online, or by check or cash at the door after, and only after, you’ve made a reservation. To reiterate: No credit cards at the door. The room doesn’t hold but 200. First come, first served.
Kids (or adults) under the age of 12 are free. Just let us know in advance that they’re coming with you.
Dress Code - IMPORTANT: Jackets and Ties for men. Comparably formal wear for women. No jeans, no sneakers, and definitely none of this. We’ll have a pile of crummy ties at the registration desk so you’re not sent away at the door. It’ll be just like the 1968 opening day bus trip and, besides, doesn’t the trophy deserve better than you in your “Duck Dynasty” pajama pants?
Photography: We’ve hired a photographer who’s taken cover shots of Time and Sports Illustrated to cover the event and take photographs of each attendee with the World Series Trophy. These shots will be available starting on Saturday, November 23rd for free download in low-res or high-res formats. Support will be provided in case anyone has downloading issues. If you want us to take an on-the-spot photo with your phone, we’ll do it…but keep things moving and please set your device to NO FLASH.
