|Dear Friends and Family,
My birthday rolls around again. I want to invite you to a special night, hoping you may share some time with us.
FRIDAY, MAY 1ST
Maya Azucena entertains with Strings concert at WNYC Radio – First Fridays in The Greene Space
The Greene Space kicks off its monthly series of First Fridays mixers. It’s Friday, so WNYC will invite listeners to drop in, let down their hair, sip a complimentary drink, enjoy great food, and mingle with WNYC hosts and fellow listeners.
Richard Hake, local anchor of The Takeaway with John Hockenberry and Adaora Udoji, and Patrik Henry Bass, Essence magazine Senior Editor and The Takeaway contributor, will emcee, while award-winning vocalist Maya Azucena provides the dance track. Azucena has developed a dedicated international following with her classic soul voice and her progressive music, which bridges soul, hip-hop, world and dance music.
You must be 21 years of age or older to attend (all attendees will be asked to show ID at the door).

BIRTHDAY AT FREEDOM PARTY – FRIDAY MAY 1st
Meet us at The Canal Room at 11PM, May 1st It’s my favorite dance party in New York.

*** Free if you show up in your Birthday Suit.
**** If you have freckles and you are in your Birthday Suit, The Canal Room will pay you! ($1 / Freck)
Here’s a description: The Freedom Party is a celebration of life, liberty and music. We keep people grooving all night to classic dance hits, be it hip-hop (mostly old school), R&B, reggae, 80s, rock, house, soul and funk, doing our best to keep the dance-floor vibe up-tempo, happy and fun. We expect all patrons to be in high spirits, ready to DANCE—not argue, fight, act disrespectful or foolishly, or bring any ill-will or negativity through our doors.
Dress code for the evening is “casual but cute.” No overly-baggy clothing, no athletic wear, no jerseys, no do-rags, no baseball caps, or white tees. Jeans and sneakers are fine, but in good taste. There is a mandatory coat check required for all patrons.
Our door man reserves the right to refuse anyone not in compliance with the above, so again, please make sure your guests are aware….
