Thank you very much for your support of the New-York Historical Society and its public programs. 


For generations, mid-May was the time men switched from their heavier winter hats to their straw boater hats. So cast off your cold-weather gear and dive into spring as you trip the light fantastic with Dandy Wellington and his jazz band. Also on tap: a cocktail bar and a photo booth. Ages 21 +; two drink tickets per person
