Waterfire is an amazing public art installation in Providence along the river. Dozens of braziers are alight on the water, and they are tended by volunteers traveling up and down the river in boats. The most beautiful music is being played over the water, and it’s a delight to all the senses. We are meeting at a sushi restaurant about half a mile away, to make parking easier for everyone. Meet at 4:00 if you want to eat and drink with us, or 5:30 if you only want to meet up to walk around Waterfire. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Mount Holyoke Lyon’s Pride and Dartmouth GALA are hosting and we inviteall our Ivy League, Seven Sisters, MIT, NYU, Stanford, Tufts, and Amherst LGBT friends. Alumni, faculty, staff, and students are welcome. Thanks to our hosts, Donna Albino and Krysia Villon of Mount Holyoke Lyon’s Pride and Susi Kandel of DGALA.

We’re bringing our cocktail series back to Audrey where we had packed events last year. Our cocktail series brings together LGBT men and women of all ages and domiciles for a chance to mingle before the commute home. Please note that this venue’s capacity is limited to 80 people, so come on the earlier side to be sure to get in. When we reach capacity, people will be let in as others leave. We will have a small amount of overflow space available just outside of the lounge.

The Audrey Lounge & Cafe is a beautiful and intimate space in a quiet corner of Murray Hill that is still just a few short blocks from Grand Central, located in the St. Giles Tuscany Hotel.

We welcome Ivy League, Seven Sisters, Stanford, NYU, Duke, UVA, Georgetown and Northwestern friends. Alumni, faculty, staff, and students that are over 21 are welcome.

Dartmouth Night Out in NYC

WHEN: Tuesday, August 31, 2010, 7:00 p.m.

WHEREHighbar, 49th St and 8th Ave. in NYC

COST: No cover. Cash bar.

Summer is slipping by and it has been a while since we’ve all gotten together! Now that everyone is back from their summer vacations (or staycations!), we’d like to get everyone together for drinks at a (hopefully) very convenient spot. It isn’t necessarily gay or lesbian, but New York is- and we can make this place gayer by showing up.

You can get there by CE, 1, or any other train really…because it’s practically next to Times Square. And even though Times Square isn’t that awesome sometimes, it is always fun to look out on lost tourists from a rooftop while enjoying a cold drink.  Bring your friends/significant others/parents/siblings.
