Brush up on your Fitzgerald and Hemingway in time for this outdoor bash, where part of Governors Island is transformed into a Prohibition-era soiree. Over two separate weekends, you can Charleston to Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra playing jazz staples, while donning your finest flapper garb and Zoot suits. Then Lindy Hop over to the bar for decade-appropriate cocktails (that promise to taste better than bathtub gin).

He will present some of his most famous songs and american anthems like “Piano Man” and “All my Life”. I will not miss this! The tickets are almost gone for one of the american-culture idols ever.
