Friends Trivia with Jameson Irish Whiskey @ Passage | New York | United States

Could you BE any more of a FRIENDS fan? Did you major in lightning rounds? On a scale from 1 to 19, 19 being the biggest FRIENDS fan in the world, are you definitely 19? Are you intrigued? You’re flingin’ flangin’ right you are!

We’ll be hosting the most exciting Friends Trivia with Jameson Irish Whiskey to ever occur in Astoria, NY since Monica and Rachel lost their apartment to Joey and Chandler back in Season 4.

Bunny up at Passage Irish Bar & Kitchen on Thursday, for FIVE unique and challenging rounds of questions. Practice the routine over and over again, use your Unagi, and show off your impressive compuper skills.

The best way to reserve tickets is by selecting a team captain and having them be in charge of tickets for ALL team members.

For example, if Monica, Chandler, Ross and Rachel are a team and Monica gets put in charge, she will then reserve tickets for herself, Chandler, Ross and Rachel = (4) in total.

PLEASE ONLY RESERVE SINGLE TICKETS IF YOU ARE PLAYING BY YOURSELF.

We will send a confirmation email to everyone closer to the event.

Challenge extended… will you be brave enough to accept?

Quintet of the Americas Presents Americans in Paris and Back Again Concert @ sTudio 7 Gallery
Jun 24 @ 3:00 pm
Quintet of the Americas Presents Americans in Paris and Back Again Concert @  sTudio 7 Gallery | New York | United States

Quintet of the Americas, Queens’ renowned woodwind quintet, will present Americans in Paris and Back Again, a program that explores the influence on American composers of Nadia Boulanger, the famous 20th century composition teacher.

Boulanger’s influence was far and wide, with over 1,200 composers coming from all over the world to study with her. In this concert the Quintet will perform works by Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Astor Piazzolla, Irving Fine, and Quincy Jones, all composers who were directly influenced by her, as well as music by Bruce Stark, one of the next generation of composers who felt her influence.

The Quintet will also include an arrangement of An American in Paris by George Gershwin. Ironically, though Gershwin went to Paris to study with Boulanger, she refused to teach him, claiming he already had a unique style and she couldn’t teach him anything.

Seating is limited; first-come, first-served.
