It was a special night.  I think my tweet captured the sentiment.   We gathered at Citi Field last night.   It involved more than a game. Shelly posted on Facebook some nice pics of the pre-game ceremony.  The outcome on the field remained secondary (thought there certainly are those happy or not at that) to the commemoration.  Bottom line,

Things will be better
Posted By : Corey Bearak

A year ago I blogged about gathering virtually for Passover (and for others, on Easter). No one thought then we would still be dealing with COVID19, albeit with many of us “vaxxed” or on the way to be such. Nonetheless its a big deal that we were able to gather in our small but safe core. My daughter took care of making sure a new seder plate she p

Baseball is back this weekend
Posted By : Corey Bearak

Baseball is back this weekend. For real.  The Mets hosted the Yankees in a summer exhibition game.  Last night's outcome confused. It included players I do not expect nor want to play when the games count but it was nice to experience it via the telly. There’s more tonight. Did you check it out last night?   Do you plan to watch it tonight? It a

Let's extoll service on the eve of honoring two greats
Posted By : Corey Bearak

President’s weekend honors our first and 16th Presidents. Why not honor them by extolling public and community service? Many we know toil in government gigs at all levels. Next time your see them or speak to them (or email or message them), just thank them. Many of them and many of you also perform some community service. Describe something better

When I think about the approach of Thanksgiving, I think about more than giving thanks for my family, friends, colleagues and my life. More and more the focus involves giving. I only hope I do enough. The Tuesday that follows Thanksgiving – Giving Tuesday – represents a culmination of giving efforts through Gotham. As Friday’s blogger repeatedly re

A void
Posted By : Corey Bearak

I do not recall feeling like this last fall. Perhaps because I had most of the summer 2018 to ease into things. All I know is some sort of void exists. My team plays no longer. The only recent event involved a firing of the manager. On the other hand Friday's blogger’s team still plays. I find I really miss watching my team and attending the games.

Another Gotham Knight at Citifield
Posted By : Corey Bearak

Independence Eve my wife and I enjoyed hanging out with some 250 of our closest friends, their spouses, (some of their) other family members, their friends and associates, and some clients. What better place to hold such a gathering than Citifield, home of my beloved (albeit underperforming in won-loss records and certain aspects of playing a game

Gotham Knights.

The evening before involved a rather large outing of sorts.   Some 265 or so of friends, colleagues, their family, friends, colleagues and clients. Attending either through Gotham City Networking, Inc.® or Kings FDR Tolerance Foundation of FDR Lodge 613, Knights of Pythias.   Citifield. Mets v. Yankees. Five home runs.   Fireworks during the game

Back-to-Back Baseball Games
Posted By : Corey Bearak

The week past I ran two different group outings on successive days to Citifield. Both teams on the field represented New York.   The first eve, we also raised some money for a Foundation I served as President for a two-year stint.   The second eve, for this networking group, I connected some folks who might benefit from the introduction.   I en
