We now meet Monday evenings at PARK PLAZA Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights

Because of a scheduling conflict at Pane E Vino, we are moving our meetings — at least for the next few weeks — to the Park Plaza Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights.

Beginning Monday, May 7, we will meet at 6–7:15 at PARK PLAZA RESTAURANT220 Cadman Plaza West [click for map] (between Clark and Middagh streets)

Park Plaza is within one block of IRT 2/3 trains, Clark Street Station, IND A/C trains, High Street Station, B41 and B25 busses to Tillary Street; the 4,5,M and R trains, Boro Hall station, are just a few blocks away.

There is on-street parking (metered until 7 pm) and an adjacent parking garage which costs $2/hour, with ticket validation by restaurant.

This is a reasonably-priced restaurant with an “endless” diner-like menu — there is practically nothing you can’t order.

Members will pay the restaurant directly only for what they order. A gratuity will be automatically added to each bill. (Payment by cash or credit card.)

Come for the Fellowship — every Monday — starting this week on May 7 — 6 pm at Park Plaza Restaurant.
