The 9th Annual New York City Pen Show begins today and runs through Sunday, October 11, 2009. I have been looking forward to this for some time, and will probably drop by Saturday.
The Show is at the Park Central Hotel, 870 Seventh Ave. at 56th Street. Times are Friday, October 9th, from 11 am to 7 pm; Saturday, October 10th from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday, October 11th, 2009 from 10 am to 4 pm. All three days are open to the public, and I believe admission is $10 a day.
