I stopped by Saturday night at Yuri's Night NYC, which was co-produced by my friend Liz Kennick, who owns a B&B here in Brooklyn. According to Wikipedia, "Yuri's Night is an international celebration held on April 12 every year to commemorate two separate space exploration milestones. The first milestone was the launch of the first human into space, Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961. The second milestone was the launch of the first Space Shuttle, STS-1, on April 12, 1981."
It was a lot of fun and I took a couple photos before the wine kicked in:
And on the way home after the wine was starting to wear off:
