AROUND THE CLUB

FROM THE

Dear Members, Welcome back! The warm summer winds are still blowing but fall’s cooler air is just around the corner. Fall has always been a time of reunion at the Club. Reconnecting with friends and fellow members, sharing vacation stories over lunch, attending an event, getting back in shape (try one of our new Pelotons), or simply getting down to business. It’s a second home for so many of us! We are excited to soon unveil our new, state-of-the-art business center. Comfortable work stations, Hot Desks, and boosted cell phone booths will be available for members. Next door to the Business Center is the new Member’s Lounge featuring a restored vintage bar, wood paneling, and artwork. Together, these new spaces are designed to meet your needs for comfort, convenience, and camaraderie. We hope that you’ll find the Lounge to be a lovely escape away from the hectic pace of the city, perfect for conversation and socializing. For members who are seeking quieter pursuits, a library and reading room is now available on the 7th floor in addition to the quiet areas of the business center. The Program and Food and Beverage Committees have an exciting line-up of events in store for us this season as well as some traditional favorites. On September 11, the Club welcomes Director of the MoMA, Glenn Lowry,Williams ’76 to discuss the museums expansion project and reopening this October. On September 16, the Club welcomes JP Morgan’s Joyce Chang, Princeton ’90, Chair of Global Research and Liz Myers, Princeton, ’92, Managing Director and Head of Global Equity Markets as they discuss navigating business with China. Just ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, The Olympic Experience panel discussion, scheduled for November 11, will share some of the challenges amateur athletes face while training for their “moment”. On Tuesday, October 10, in celebration of Italian Heritage Month, we pay tribute to the cult-movie classic, Big Night , with author Joseph Tropiano, who together with his cousin, Stanley Tucci, wrote the script for what was to become one of the greatest food scenes in film making history. A Sundance Jury Review winner, the movie inspired our own Chef Michael’s (see Chef ’s Corner, page 6) culinary journey. Also joining us for this five-course feast – interspersed with movie clips, fine wines, and behind the scenes stories from the film – is Italian food historian, Francine Segan, who is teaming up with Chef Michael to put their own authentic twist on the evening’s offerings. Cheers to these last few days of summer! I look forward to welcoming our new members to Orientation on September 24 and honoring our 50Year Members’ at the annual Luncheon on October 8. This year’s Annual Meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 22 and I hope to see you there. Don’t forget to save the date for our All Ivy Halloween Ball on October 25 and our traditional All Member Holiday Party on December 17. There is so much in store for us this fall. Happy to be sharing it with all of you! Cheers, PRESIDENT

FOOD & WINE

of

CHEF’S CORNER

January 1996. I was just promoted to sous chef at theWaldorf Astoria when I remember seeing a television ad for this movie called Big Night . Finally! A movie about what I love – good food, hospitality and fraternity. Big Night is one of my favorite movies. If you haven’t seen it, treat yourself and make sure you see it before October 10th! The movie had a profound effect on me and how I perform as a Chef. It is about food as a language. A language you can use to create, seduce, and aspire to perfection. What made this film a favorite of mine was its authenticity.There are dozens of foodie movies out there, and only a handful worth watching.This is the best. Why? Because Primo, the faultless Chef (played by Tony Shaloub) and Secondo, his people pleasing brother (Tucci) are so well matched – the casting, the set, and story line are perfect. Some say that Big Night played a role in our Chef obsession and helped predict the future of the restaurant business. Lidia Bastianich, author and co-owner of acclaimed NYC restaurant Del Posto, spent year’s introducing Italian regionality, authenticity and meal structure in her cookbooks, not wanting to force but to cajole her customers into her love of Italian culture and food. Like the Tropianos/Tucci family, my own family’s Sunday dinners, whether at my grandmother’s or my inlaws, were very structured. Antipasto followed by pasta, roast, salad, cheeses and desserts, and finally, fruit and nuts. My family would gasp as my Grandmother brought out course after course. The final scene is epic. No words. Just two brothers, disappointed and broken. What brings them together at the end is a simple, properly made omelet, as authentic as the movie. I can’t wait to share this evening with you and hear from Joe and Francine on October 10. See you at my Big Night! – Chef Michael

Joining Joe will be our own Chef Michael and Italian food historian, Francine Segan to help us recreate and celebrate Princeton’s own Big Night .

THE PLOT: Two Italian immigrant brothers, struggle to keep their authentic Italian restaurant on the Jersey Shore afloat in the 1950’s. A Big Night of food is planned in honor of a special guest who is sure to drum up enough business to keep the restaurant open and even thrive. Things don’t go as planned though. Primo, the chef and a brilliant perfectionist scoffs at “Americanized” italian food. Primo’s brother, Secondo runs the dining room and wants to give the customer what they want to bring in money. “When my cousin Stanley Tucci and I began developing the script that became Big Night , we didn’t set out to write a food movie.We wanted to tell the story of what it takes for two brothers from Italy to make it in America running an “authentic” Italian restaurant. But after the film’s shoot and during the editing process, it was clear that the food had become another character in the film.” – Joe Tropiano

Joe Tropiano’s favorite quote: “Sometimes the spaghetti, likes to be alone.” Chef Michael’s favorite quote: “To eat good food is to be close to God.”

ARTS & CULTURE

The Plaza Stories WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 6:30PM RECEPTION, 7:00PM LECTURE THE PLAZA is the account of one vaunted NewYork City address that has become synonymous with wealth and scandal, opportunity and tragedy.With glamour on the surface and strife behind the scenes, it is the story of how one hotel became a mirror reflecting New York’s place at the center of the country’s cultural narrative for over a century. Journalist Julie Satow will share how this thrilling, unforgettable history of one illustrious hotel has defined our understanding of money and glamour, from the Gilded Age to the Go-Go Eighties to today’s Billionaire Row. From the moment in 1907 when NewYork millionaire Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt strode through the Plaza Hotel’s revolving doors to become its first guest, to the afternoon in 2007 when a mysterious Russian oligarch paid a record price for the hotel’s largest penthouse, the eighteen-story white marble edifice at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street has radiated wealth and luxury. For some, the hotel evokes images of F. Scott Fitzgerald frolicking in the Pulitzer Fountain, or Eloise, the impish young guest who pours water down the mail chute. But the true stories captured in THE PLAZA:The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel also include dark, hidden secrets: from the cold-blooded murder perpetrated by the construction workers in charge of building the hotel, to how Donald J.Trump came to be the only owner to ever bankrupt the Plaza. Julie Satow is an award-winning journalist who has covered real estate in NewYork City for more than a decade. A regular contributor to the NewYork Times , her work has also appeared on National Public Radio, the NewYork Post ,The Daily Beast and elsewhere. Host Alan Segan. Members: Free; Guests: $15. Poster House proudly presents Baptized by Beefcake: The Golden Age of Hand-Painted Movie Posters from Ghana SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 10:30AM Exclusive museum tour by exhibition co-curator, ErnieWolfe III,Williams ’72. Before the advent of digital printing, self-taught Ghanaian artists merged art, cinema, and practical necessity in the creation of hand-painted movie posters. These posters, uniquely painted on repurposed flour sack cloth and ultimately replaced by digital reproduction, may have never been known to the larger public were it not for the efforts of ErnieWolfe III, a dealer in African art and Los Angeles gallery owner. They represent the noble attempt by the best and brightest Ghanaian sign painters of a generation to resist the inevitable onslaught of technology and globalization that would eventually put them out of business by the year 2000.“Crowd Pullers”, as they were affectionately known in Ghana, introduced the Ghanaian public toWorld Cinema, and thereby, to the world at large. This extensive exhibition of approximately 60 posters is the result of three decades of fieldwork and scholarship by ErnieWolfe III.This exhibition opens October 17 and ends on January 5, 2020. Light refreshments will be served. Members & Guests: Free. Limited registration. Location: Poster House, 119W 23rd St., Chelsea, NYC 10011 (a brand new museum dedicated to the exhibition of posters) The Williams Club and the Princeton Club of NewYork proudly co-host this event.

INSIGHTS BY DIRECTOR GLENN D. LOWRY WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 6:30PM RECEPTION, 7:00PM PROGRAM The Museum of Modern Art is currently in the midst of an expansion project that will open in October of this year, following the brief closure that started in June. The expansion, developed by MoMA with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with architectural firm, Gensler, adds more than 40,000 square feet of gallery space and enables the Museum to exhibit significantly more art in new and interdisciplinary ways, increasing the Museum’s footprint by one-third. “Inspired by Alfred Barr’s original vision to be an experimental museum in NewYork, the real value of this expansion is not just more space, but space that allows us to rethink the experience of art in the Museum,” said Glenn D. Lowry,The David Rockefeller Director of The Museum of Modern Art. Mr. Lowry,Williams ’76, has been MoMA’s Director since 1995 and will take us inside the New MoMA for a preview of what is to come. “We have an opportunity to re-energize and expand upon our founding mission—to welcome everyone to experience MoMA as a laboratory for the study and presentation of the art of our time, across all visual arts.” The Studio in the heart of the Museum will feature live programming and performances that react to, question, and challenge histories of modern art and the current cultural moment. An innovative second-floor Platform for education will invite visitors to connect with art that explores new ideas about the present, past, and future. A street-level Projects gallery, free and open to all on the expanded ground floor, will better connect the Museum to NewYork City and bring art closer to people on the streets of midtown Manhattan. The Collection’s reinstallation will reveal a presentation that highlights the creative affinities and frictions produced by displaying painting, sculpture, architecture, design, photography, media, performance, film, and works on paper together. MoMA’s Director, Glenn Lowry, will provide Club Members with an insightful program about THE NEW & IMPROVED MoMA

Late Night EMPIRE STATE BUILDING

Yes, he takes requests. Learn more here: esbnyc.com/visit- empire-state-building/when-to-visit

Bring the Family THE GREAT JACK LANTERN BLAZE FALL SEPT 20-22; 26-29; OCT 3-31; NOV 1-3; 8-10; 15-17; 22-23; 29-30 One of the best things to do in the fall in New York is check out The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze in Hudson Valley, NY. Trust us, it’s worth the trip. Witness an army of more than 7,000 glowing, intricately carved pumpkins shining along the riverside near Van Cortlandt Manor. This is the tristate area’s most spirited Halloween happening. There are also “stargazing” opportunities inside the Pumpkin Planetarium, flying ghosts and a special appearance by Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman. When you go, make sure to take a moment to admire all the lovely fall foliage upstate. Learn more here: timeout.com/ newyork/travel/guide-to-great-jack-o- lantern-blaze
