Established for the relief of boredom and the perpetuation of independence.

First Thursday is Ending

After more than three decades, it's time to end our monthly lunch tradition.

First Thursday began November 6, 1986 as a way for friends to gather after the closing of our beloved bar Chauncey's (formerly McCann's) on East 44th St.

We'll try to gather one last time, on November 5, 2020 at McSorley's.
