Putluck Dinner Party - Tuesday, June 25th at 7 PM
Hi there! My name is Michael and I’m a Couchsurfing host here in New
York. I live just outside Manhattan with my fiancee Adrienne and we're
having a “potluck” dinner party that we’d like to invite our fellow
Couchsurfers to join in on.
A “potluck dinner” is an American tradition where many people come
together for dinner and everyone brings one food item and one drink item
to share with everyone else.
It's a really nice event because you get to meet and talk with a small
group of interesting people in a mellow atmosphere and it’s not super
loud (or super late – it ends at 10:30!!).
We're located just outside of Manhattan, at 2728 Thomson Avenue in Long
Island City (map)--very easy to get to by subway. The closest subway
E train: Court Square (also known as 23rd Street or Ely Avenue)
M train: Court Square (also known as 23rd Street or Ely Avenue)
7 train: Court Square (also known as 45 Road)
G train: Court Square
N train: Queensborough Plaza
Q train: Queensborough Plaza
R train: Queens Plaza
If you need subway directions, go to the MTA TripPlanner.
(If you'd like very detailed directions on how to get here, send an email to email@example.com
with "Directions" in the subject heading and we'll get right back to
you. If you don't have a smartphone with you, it's easy to get lost in
When you get to our building, tell the guy at the desk you're here for the Couchsurfing Potluck.
