Dues-paying members of the ARChive, were treated to a cocktail party on Thursday, December 6 (6-9 PM) and treated to the hillbilly sounds of Susquehanna Industrial Tool and Die Co. It was ballads, boogie and blues to all, and to all a good night! (BTW, members get to shop before the general public! If you’d like to JOIN, call 212-226-6967 for details.)
