FLOWERS ABOUND AT HOUSING WORKS BOOK CAFE IN SOHO

On Friday night, I swung by the Housing Works Book Cafe in SoHo. It's one of my favorite diggs in Manhattan. The joint had shut down early, and from the fancy frocks of folks standing by the door, it looked like a wedding might be happening.

On Sunday, I came back to HW and it was filled with the prettiest fall-colored floral bouquets. (See above for blurry cell phone pic!) When I asked the volunteer working at the cafe if there had been a wedding there over the weekend he said "Yeah, three!" Evidently, HW Book Cafe has become quite the place to have parties. Housing Works even has their own catering company, appropriately called The Works.

A great thing about using the Book Cafe or The Works for an event is that the money goes towards services and programs for folks living with HIV and AIDS.
