The Northeast Chapter of the Audi Club of North America is pleased to announce our Seventh Annual “NEQ Holiday Social” in NYC on December 10 & 11, 2016.

We welcome our old friends and especially look forward to extending a warm welcome to any new members who join us for another fun and exciting event in New York City.

***As usual, the event is comprised of several segments, which are sold separately. Join us for all of the activities, or just a few.  Please read the instructions carefully to ensure you register for the activities you want.  Priority for tours will be given to those attending the dinner.*** 

The festivities will begin on Saturday, December 10th, at 3:00 PM at Rockefeller Center.

There is no more quintessential New York Christmas holiday scene than the tree at Rockefeller Center.  We will begin with a guided tour extending us an extraordinary look into the rich history and breathtaking artistry of one of New York’s most famous landmarks. The tour will touch on the great works of art and architecture that comprise the center, including the most significant buildings, gardens and spaces.  The tour will last one hour and fifteen minutes (3:00 – 4:15).

At 4:30 PM, an additional tour of Radio City Music Hall, one of NYC’s most spectacular theaters, will follow the Rockefeller Center tour.  

This tour will offer us an insider’s look at the Music Hall, the art deco masterpieces and the secrets of the great stage.  We may even meet a Rockette.  This tour will also last an hour and fifteen minutes (4:30 – 5:45).

The Highlight: Cocktails and Dinner at Biricchino

For cocktails and dinner, we will be returning to NEQ member, Paul Valetutti’s Northern Italian Restaurant, Biricchino, located at 260 West 29 Street, at the corner of 8th Avenue. Cocktails will begin at 7:00 PM with a cash bar and Paul’s incredible spread of charcuterie. A sit-down dinner will follow around 8:00 PM. Those who attended our social in 2013, we are sure, will fondly remember our wonderful dinner there.  Those who did not attend are in for a real treat.  Bring a healthy appetite. For our listening pleasure, Tamar Korn’s “Kornacopia”, a superb jazz quartet, will be entertaining us during dinner.

Gotham Hotel

As in our past events, NEQ has made arrangements with The Gotham Hotel at 16 East 46th Street to offer special rates for a Fri/Sat/Sun stay, or any combination of day or days, for those who may wish to make a real holiday at this festive time.  Achtung: The NEQ rate hold and room block at the Gotham Hotel is only guaranteed through November 23! Details here - you can book your room at any time -  The Gotham Hotel- NEQ Holiday Social 2016.

"Empty Met" Tour

For those staying in NYC or close by, on Sunday morning, we are planning a very unique event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (on 82nd Street and Fifth Avenue). The “Empty Met” private guided tour of the museum truly is a rare opportunity. The intimate tour is limited to 25 attendees and we will be one of only several private tours in the museum, before it opens to the public. This hour and a half exclusive tour through the Met will allow us to journey uninhibited through an institution which hosts over 5,000 years of art from every corner of the globe.  As we roam the galleries with one of the museum’s most engaging guides, we can take photos without the crowds and enjoy the surreal experience of being part of such a small group in a building that normally has many thousands of daily visitors.  The tour starts at 8:30 AM.  

Due to seating limitations at the restaurant and tour size limits on all three of the tours, this event will be strictly limited to Audi Club Members and their family/friends.  Please check your membership status at prior to registering.
