In Russia  beer (пиво pivo) is the second most popular alcoholic drink after vodka. The biggest Russian brewer is St. Petersburg's Baltika.  Awesome dance party till late late on Saturday night with LIVE music by "Golfstrom" quartet. Refreshments and Russian Beer "Baltika" (cash bar).

"Golfstrom" Band

GOLFSTROMThe quartet’s front man, singer and accordionist, Sergei Nirenburg, when not engaged in his musical avocation, is a PhD-holding cognitive scientist who helps run a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute facility known as the Language-Endowed Intelligent Agents Laboratory, home of cutting-edge robotics/artificial intelligence research that could make humans!  Golfstrom features Nirenburg on accordion and vocals, Jonathan Greene on clarinet, Brian Melick on percussion, and Bobby Kendall on string bass.  

"Golfstrom" plays “vintage old-world music.” What exactly is that? The dramatic sound of Buenos Aires tango clubs, the joyful and wistful melodies of Gypsy and Klezmer bands at Ukrainian village dances and Jewish weddings, and music from French, Italian, and Russian cinema. Golfstrom dedicates their performance to the many different strains of music from around the world.  Traditional melodies, lullabies, ballads, and standards; klezmer as well as waltzes, tangos, and foxtrots.  Golfstrom takes you on musical journeys in time over much of the 20th century and in space between Europe and the Americas. The music will bring you to the bal-musettes of old Paris, interwar Warsaw music halls, the famous Berlin cabarets of the 1920s, concert halls in the old USSR, and the musical cafés of Vienna.  Their repertoire includes all-time favorites from the old, wonderful Russian, Italian, and French movies. They recreate the dramatic sound of Buenos Aires’ tango clubs, the joyful and wistful melodies that Gypsy and Klezmer bands used to play at Ukrainian village dances and Jewish weddings.
