My favorite party at Toy Fair each year is the Toy & Game Inventors party that takes place at Connelly’s Pub in mid-town Manhattan. 100's of spirited toy and game inventors in one place at one time is quite an experience. It’s informal and its fun.
That was why I was happy to see that Mary is bringing a summertime version of the experience to Manhattan on Thursday, June 27 at, yep, you got it, Connelly’s Pub 121 W. 45th St (between 6th and 7th). It will run from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (those are the official times) but I would expect that it will run longer. Sponsored by the Toy Industry Association and The World Congress of Play, ChiTag New York is part of a global outreach by ChiTag. Similar parties have been held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto and London. There are plans for events in Seattle, Boston, Indianapolis, Sarasota (Sarasota??), Minneapolis and Montreal. So stay tuned.
See you in New York.
