CANCELLED: The Return of John Palmer - December 6th at 6:30pm

UPDATE: We apologize for the last minute cancellation and any inconvenience caused, but John Palmer will not be coming to NYC this week. The wildfires in California are forcing John and his family to evacuate their home. We wish John and his family luck and hope for their safety. All events scheduled with John Palmer in NYC have been cancelled. Here's a note from John himself:

To all,

I am very sorry, but the wildfires and winds here in my area are close enough that we will probably have to evacuate in the next day or two. The winds are not due to let up (50 mph) until Friday, and I cannot leave my family to navigate this potential evacuation without me. 

I am so sorry to disrupt all of your plans for this week, I was really really looking forward to it! But hopefully this time next week I will only be kicking myself for missing a great trip.

Thank you for your understanding.
