Blame the weather or the writer’s life but, quite frankly, this past winter I was too damn inert to walk / hop the subway to visit any of the cultural and historic treasures that are in my own urban backyard. On her recent visit, Jane Austen got around NYC more than I had, lately…
But this past week I busted out — woo hoo! — and was aided and abetted by the annual Night at the Museums event and book publishing friends who explored tavern “history” with me. Strictly for research purposes, of course.
*If you don’t believe me, see the Fraunces Tavern History 1776 – 1784: “During the week of Evacuation Day, George Washington was in the City, and he made use of the Tavern by dining in and ordering take-out.”
