Women Take Over at WSP Event Thursday Evening
WE NYC/Women Entrepreneurs, part of NYC Department of Small Business Services “dedicated to helping women start and grow their businesses,” is hosting an event “Women Take Over at Washington Square Park” on Thursday, May 17th at 8 p.m. featuring New York City-based all-female drumming group Fogo Azul and “calls to action by other great NYC women.” Well, that’s a little vague but I have attended some WE NYC events and they usually go all out. You can RSVP here. This is likely at Garibaldi Plaza, east of fountain.
Also on Saturday, May 19th at 12 noon is a Netflix promotion at the park “celebrating the impending release of the newest season of ‘Arrested Development.'”
(Have you noticed more commercial activity at the park lately? Hmmm.)
As for the WE NYC event, Fogo Azul alone is worth seeing. Check out these photos below of the group at Garibaldi Plaza from last summer!
I wrote at the time: This all-female drumming group, Fogo Azul NYC (which means Blue Heat), is excellent. I have no idea if this recent performance at the park was scheduled or impromptu but the Brazilian marching band took over Garibaldi Plaza last Wednesday evening and delighted all:
The seating was still in place for Washington Square Music Festival (last show of the season at the park).

The photos above came from this post in late June of last year: Washington Square Summer: Drummers Take Over Garibaldi Plaza, A Tree Falls, Fountain Flows. Fun to revisit!
