We're 6 weeks away from GOTO's big summer party (7/30/09 at the 79th Street Boat Basin), so we thought it'd be fun to post a slideshow of our favorite pictures from GOTO's first 3 summer events.
For our first summer party (August '01), we classed it up in the garden of the Merchant's House Museum
. A jazz band serenaded a few hundred GOTO supporters and we were joined by Appel Farm founder, Albert Appel.
The following year, we traded the jazz band & Merchant's House for steel drums & the Peking
. Docked at the South Street Seaport - and with a capacity of close to 600 "passengers" - the Peking was an awesome
outdoor venue for us. We were at the Peking for four summers in a row. Everyone had fun on the Peking.
Except the guy who tried to climb the 170 foot mast and got arrested ... true story.
