GNYM Performing Arts Festival - Mensa Talent Show
Manhattan 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Who has more talent than you? Come on, show us what you've got.
Maybe you like to watch. We've got something for you, too.
It's time once again for the Annual GNYM Talent Show! As talent lies in many different areas, each year GNYM's Talent Show revolves around a different theme. This year's theme is Performance! We're calling on all of our members to show us your skill - whatever you can do, no matter how mainstream or off-the-wall, we want to see it! In years past we've run the gamut from magicians to singers to speed-eaters to comediennes, and we can't wait to see what we'll get this year.
Admission is free for all. Refreshments will be served.
(A board meeting precedes at 1 pm. Talent show 2 pm.)
To perform in the Mensa Talent Show, or for any other questions related to the event, please RSVP to GNYM President Leon Feingold at email@example.com or (516) 850-4533. We'll see your talented selves there!

Travel alert: Manhattan is more car-unfriendly than ever. Cross-town traffic is horrible. The location is in the Theater District, near 42nd Street, Times Square, and Port Authority Bus Terminal, so local car and pedestrian traffic are high, and parking is scarce. On post-summer weekends, car traffic and demand for parking are higher than usual. Actual travel time from Queens Midtown Tunnel to the door can be 2 hours. From Long Island, the subway or LIRR + subway (or walk 10.5 blocks) reduces travel time by 1.5 to 2 hours.
