Missed the parade and event yesterday ☹️
Members & Friends of the Holland Society of New York are invited by the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York and the Fraunces Tavern® Museum to attend the opening of the museum’s newest permanent exhibition, “Governing the Nation from Fraunces Tavern”.
The exhibition highlights the period 1785-1788, between the end of the American Revolution and the ratification of the United States Constitution, when the Congress of the Confederation rented rooms at Fraunces Tavern for three government departments. It depicts the Departments of Foreign Affairs and War and the Offices of the Board of Treasury while they were headquartered at the Tavern and helps visitors understand the diplomatic, military, and financial challenges that all three departments faced during this time.
The opening reception will be held on Tuesday, June 21st from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Museum at 54 Pearl Street in New York City. A dinner will follow downstairs in the Tavern’s Bissell Room at 7:30 pm
Reception and Dinner: $130

A former colleague of mine from Starbucks recommended Fraunces Tavern Restaurant and Fraunces Tavern® Museum right around the corner from my hotel.
Wanted a light dinner.
Ordered the beet and burrata salad. Very small chunk of cheese covered in a heaping of watercress. Red beet quarters. Parts of figs. Delish if you got some cheese.
Also shred a George Washington’s Horseback. It’s a majoul date wrapped in crispy bacon. Sprinkles of walnuts. A decent tasty morsel. Plating looks spare.
Sam and Tanhya had the Short Ribs Porter Pie Fish and Chips respectively. Two thumbs from both of them.
The restaurant and museum is located in a very old building. It’s a national historic landmark and the oldest tavern in NYC with several founding fathers patronizing this establishment. The on-site museum opens 9-5. There was pianist with accompaniment the night we were there. Servers were friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive.
Supporting the Fraunces Tavern® Museum at Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York's annual George Washington Birthday Ball. It was a lovely evening with fellow historic preservation supporters and lineage society members. Thank you for hosting such an enjoyable event!

But I had to try. If what I came to do worked out as great and glorious as the Russian Revolution once purported itself, our company would have replanted the egalitarian hammer and sickle symbol through the misplaced ideal of capitalism from the bottom up.
