Tavern on the Green’s Christmas Tree Lighting will be taking place for the third year tonight. It will be happening in their courtyard from 5pm to 7pm.
The evening highlight will be a twenty-foot tree covered in over two-thousand ornaments, with a design inspired by the history of the UWS restaurant.
Another dozen Noble Fir trees will be scattered throughout the inside of the restaurant.
10,000 lights will be strung around the perimeter of the building.
Plus, there will be a huge Tavern on the Green gingerbread house in the entry!
The menu will include mulled cider and hot chocolate and Tavern’s signature cookies & donuts.
There will also be live holiday music, including carol singing from LaGuardia High School.
Students from West Side Campaign Against Hunger’s Chef Training Program will also be there doling out samples of their handmade soup to help raise awareness of their organization. Donations will be accepted on site or by texting HUNGER to 77948.
