This is my first time hosting! Come on by around 4:30 pm. The music will start at 5.

The house is equally accessible from the 39 bus or the Orange Line (Stony Brook stn.) Street parking, sometimes tight.

I'll lay out a few snacks. BYOB.

Looking forward!

The reminder email says to come at 5:00 for music at 5:30, but this page says to come at 4:30 for music at 5:00. Which is right? Thanks!
