Come for a very special summer outing at the South Fin Grill in the center of South Beach on Staten Island.
Enjoy a great view of the ocean, the boardwalk and the Verrazano Bridge along with sangria or any of their outstanding cocktails.
With charming staff and a beautiful location, this great venue makes a visit to the under-appreciated boro of Staten Island a treat!
Thanks to organizer Shawn Cowls of FFR/Princeton BTGALA and co-hosts Ryan Grubbs of Brown TBGALA & Matt Hyde of Cornell U GALA! Thanks also to Rosemary Palladino and Natasha of Yale GALA for helping get the word out!
We especially invite gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered men and women alums from the Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools and our friends from NYU, Stanford, Duke, UVA, Georgetown, Northwestern, Amherst, USC & Emory. Our friends and loved ones from other schools are also welcome to join in.
Getting there? If you're driving, we're at the corner of Father Capodanno and Sand Lane right at the boardwalk.
Ever been jealous of the fancy express buses that the outer borough residents have?
It is a few bucks more than the subway, but it will get you there quickly and in style.
Try it with the X5 bus from midtown all the way there (57th & 3rd, Lex & 34th, or 23rd & 1st).
You can also take the X4 (Greenwich & Battery), X7 (West & Carlyle), X8 (Trinity & Rector or Water & Pearl?) from downtown Manhattan or the S51 or S81 from the Staten Island Ferry.
Get off at the corner of Father Capodanno and Sand Lane. (Ask the driver to tell you when that is!)
