Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday, February 18 for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties! We had a great debut at the Metropolitan Room and raised over $300 for Pilots to the Rescue! (Exact amount to be posted soon.) In case you missed it, here are some photos.
Feb. 18 is going to be a magical night for many reasons, not the least of which because we have an actual magician joining us:
Nelson Lugo, ‘The Charming Trickster,’ is a magician, raconteur, former ringmaster, and burgeoning grifter. Known for heartfelt illusions and wry vaudevillian honesty he is a noted and celebrated performer in the underground NYC cabaret scene. Descended from a genuine Santeria, Nelson Lugo’s singular magical style showcases classic sleight of hand with a nod to the pop culture that has shaped him.
Nelson is just one of the many captivating performers who will be on hand to intrigue and delight you as part of our vaudeville-inspired showcase at the Metropolitan Room to benefit Pilots to the Rescue. We will also have singers, dancers, glass eaters – you know, the usual fare.
