Last Saturday evening, Special Friend and I ventured up to the Big Apple to enjoy the ‘Emerald Holiday Affair: A Special Evening with Alvin Ailey Dance Theater’ hosted by The Eastern Area Arts Committee of The Links, Incorporated. Hard working Links Sandy Burger, Deesha Hill, Gayle Hawkins, and Dawn Hankin planned a wonderful evening for more than 70 members of The Links, Incorporated from various chapters.

Special Friend was particularly excited that there were some other gentlemen at the affair. While he is a good sport and enjoys going to events with me, he is not always thrilled that he is often the only man (or one of few men). Of course, he saddled right up next to the other men-folk during the presentation of programming activities of The Links, Incorporated.
Note to the Brothers: Step it up! Your presence is kindly requested at social events!
We chatted while enjoying wine and hors d'oeuvres before the evening’s performance – which was breathtaking.
If you can see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater on this 50th Anniversary Tour, you really should snap up your tickets immediately!

My good pals from Ailey sent me some wonderful pics from their Opening Night Gala to share with you.
But alas people, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see them.
Have a super day!
