A brief announcement on behalf of the Gotham Knights RFC (I expect those of you who are in town to be there . . . those of you who live out of town, just send money):

Hear ye, hear ye... An open call to all New Yorkers to join the Gotham Knights Rugby Football Club for a night of drunken revelry and merriment (a.k.a. a bar night) at our new favorite pub (and newest sponsor) on the Upper East Side, Who's on First. The ale will be flowing, with Gotham Knights serving as guest bartenders (and they have Guinness on tap!). Rugby matches will be featured on the televisions along with good music blaring through the speakers. You can test your skills at billiards or darts... just don't try dancing... it is strictly prohibited. There will be a variety Jell-o shots for sale and a raffle with great prizes. Donations will also be accepted at the door. The proceeds from this event not only go to help the team make its way to London to compete in the Bingham Cup but will also go to the family of Patrol Officer Tom Fantry of the Mt. Vernon Police Department. PO Fantry is currently in the final stages of terminal cancer and will leave behind young twins upon his death. We will be taking up a special collection to help this family during this difficult time.

Hope to see you there!

When: Wednesday, March 10th from 7:00 PM until whenever they throw us out!
Where: Who's on First, 1683 First Ave. @ East 87th St., NY, NY 10028
