If you plan on meeting us BEFORE the game. we'll be at Havana Central (catchy name, cool bar) on Broadway (west side of the street) between 113th and 114th around 12:15-12:30 or so. The best bet is to take the 1 Train to 116th Street.
If you plan on meeting us AT the game, we'll be at the main entrance of the Arena in the Dodge Fitness center. Join us at 1:45 PM to get your ticket ($10) to the big, big game. Again, your best bet so take the 1 Train to 116th Street, from there, walk through the Main Gate at Columbia. You may either consult the map, a friendly coed or walk to the main quad, take a left at the first set of stairs and head north past the lion statue and to the digital sign. Down those steps is the entrance to the fitness center. (whew)
Another scenario is that you may plan on meeting us at Grand Central Station. The station itself is quite grand and central, so we'll be sure to be in the main central hall at 5:00 PM (but likely wandering around the halls long before.)
Finally, we'll be at Maggie's (21 E 47th between Madison and Park) between 5:30 and 6:00 PM. From there, the sky is the limit. We're also working on an Inclement Weather Plan B if its too nasty out to walk up 5th Avenue to look at the window displays.
Hope to see you Saturday!

We’ll likely end in the early evening at FAO Schwartz where Brooke will reenact the scene from Big on the actual piano with Robert Logia in person. From there….who knows? The Subway Inn has always been a delightful haven for shady patrons tired after a day of walking.
