We’re very excited about all of the positive RSVPs that are coming in for this benefit. Due to the overwhelming response and the limited space, please come to your favorite segment of the evening (as scheduled below) with the understanding that we will most likely have to Rotate the Room a Couple of Times in order to Make the Benefit as Successful as possible. Luckily, there are great bars and restaurants just a few yards from the show so you can plan an evening of fun.

Are you missing those great evening hangs at Red Hook’s iconic SUNNY’S BAR? Well, so are we. Superstorm Sandy gave Red Hook a beating. Like the other businesses in the neighborhood SUNNY’s BAR is slow at recovering and in need of major funding to reopen – so TRIP CITY and the Hamilton Gallery Theater are hosting a benefit to restore our favorite waterfront bar and bring you a SUNNY’S night out on the road…http://tinyurl.com/savesunnys
