To switch it up for all you tired bar queens, try the Transit Museum at Grand Central Station. New Yorkers are prone to missed connections, and we all have had them!

This Thursday meet up with your missed connection at the hub of New York City transportation starting at 8 PM! Sophie Blackall, known for her Missed Connection Illustrations will be there to help you put a face to the memory. Vanderbilt Hall, Grand Central Terminal, NY NY.
