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

The tradition continues!

Thanks for attending the annual Thanksgiving Classic!


The End of First Thursday

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 gather one last time, on November 4, 2021 at McSorley's to salute a 35 year tradition.
