First and foremost, we hope you and your loved ones made it through Sandy unscathed. Obviously, much of the city did not. As we await updates from the city on restored power to many of our neighborhoods and MTA service in all five boroughs, we’re reluctantly cancelling our Flavorpill GEL launch / Halloween party at Le Bain scheduled for Wednesday, October 31.
If you’re able to aid in the city’s recovery process, here are a few ways to help:
Volunteer for The Lower East Side Recovers
Sign up to volunteer at NYC Public Advocate’s Office
Donate to or volunteer for the Red Cross
Craig Newmark of craigslist is matching donations to the Red Cross to $25K
United Airlines is matching donations to the Red Cross up to $50K
And, as the city comes back online, we invite you to check out Flavorpill’s Global Event Log.
Be safe, enjoy your city, and we’ll see you soon; we’re looking to reschedule the launch party and will let you know! Our contest is still on, find info below:
SEND US YOUR TOP 3 PICKS FOR EVENTS IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS IN NYC. Send with subject “THE FUTURE!” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will get them +1 to our party, and a few select winners will make it onto our curator board. We’ll post all the winning recommendations as well! GET TO IT!
