CITY OF THE BRAVE: FIREFIGHTERS OF NYC, NOVEMBER 11TH, 6:00PM – 7:00PM
The 2011 City of the Brave calendar, now in its third annual edition, showcases NYC’s most passionate and well deserving firefighters.  The calendar features heroes from firehouses located throughout the city’s five boroughs, and each has volunteered his time to participate, promote and share his story with the public. Guests who purchase the calendar will receive the opportunity to have their photo taken with the twelve hunky firefighters of NYC!  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of City of the Brave benefits the active members of the FDNY.  The fund, established in 1991, assists the families with medical costs, housing & repairs and school tuition.
LOU PINIELLA, NOVEMBER 13TH, 6:00PM – 7:00PM
Lou Piniella earned three World Series titles (two as a player and one as a manager) during his forty plus years in Major League Baseball.   Nicknamed “Sweet Lou,” he is currently ranked 14th all-time on the total managerial wins list.  As a player, Piniella had a remarkable career spanning eighteen seasons that included American League “Rookie of the Year” honors in 1969, two World Series victories with the 1977 & 1978 “Bronx Zoo” New York Yankee teams and over 1,700 career hits.  He retired this year as manager of the Chicago Cubs and will go down as one of the most beloved and brilliant baseball talents of all time. 
OTTIS ANDERSON, NOVEMBER 14TH, 3:00PM – 4:00PM
Ottis Anderson is a two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants who rushed for over 10,000 yards during his fourteen year NFL career, highlighted by being named MVP of Super Bowl XXV in the Giants victory over the Buffalo Bills.  
An All-American at the University of Miami, Anderson was named the NFL “Offensive Rookie of the Year” in 1979 while playing with the St. Louis Cardinals, the team which drafted him 8th overall.  Anderson is a two-time Pro Bowler and was also named NFL “Offensive Comeback Player of the Year” in 1989, after overcoming numerous injuries from prior years, and rushing for a career high fourteen touchdowns.
