The Audi Club Northeast chapter of the Audi Club of North America is pleased to announce our fourth annual “NEQ Holiday Social” in NYC. Please mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, December 14th & 15th, 2013. We welcome old friends and especially look forward to extending a warm welcome to any new members who join us for another fun and exciting event in New York City.

The festivities will begin on Saturday, December 14th, at noon at the Intrepid Air & Space Museum, for a VIP tour of the museum and the British Airways Concorde.

We have simplified the dining festivities this year and decided to have both cocktail hour and dinner at the same location. NEQ member, Paul Valetutti’s Northern Italian Restaurant, Biricchino, located at 260 West 29 Street, at the corner of 8th Avenue. There, you will be served refreshing adult beverages (cash bar) and delicious appetizers while socializing with old and new friends. Dinner to follow.

For those staying in NYC or close by, on Sunday morning, we are planning a private guided “behind the scenes” tour of Grand Central Terminal from 10 AM to 1 PM. As in our past events, NEQ has made arrangements with The Gotham Hotel on 46th Street to offer special rates for a Fri/Sat/Sun stay, or any combination of day or days, for those who may wish to make a real holiday at this festive time.

Due to seating limitations at the restaurant and tour size limits on both the Intrepid, and Grand Central tours, this event will be strictly limited to 70 people at Biricchino, 20 people for the Intrepid Tour on Saturday and 30 people for the Grand Central Tour on Sunday. Please sign up quickly to reserve your space. Attendance is not required at all venues, you may sign up for each independently of the other, if you choose or need to.

NEQ is now setting up the sign-up process. Booking for the event will be through motorsportreg. Registration opens Sunday, November 17th, at 12 noon. Instructions for booking the hotel at the NEQ rate are posted on motorsportreg.

Pricing for this event is as follows:

  • Intrepid Tour: Admission to the museum: Adults: $24, Seniors: $20 (VIP Tour charges are compliments of NEQ)
  • Dinner@Biricchino: $65 per person (includes gratuity) + alcohol
  • Gotham Hotel: $275 per night (NEQ rate hold until 12/3)
  • Grand Central Tour: Free if you attend, $20 fine for no-shows

As the event is limited in size, and is just month away, time is of the essence. We are very much looking forward to seeing you all on December 14th and 15th. Do not miss out! Last year was a great success.

Thank you.


Jeff Bennett and Anthony Rivara, your faithful co-event-masters.
