Yes. I am still in my parking lot obeying the rules of making New York City Covid-free. And, NYC is doing very well in comparison to many other places in America. I was excitedly looking forward to entering Phase 4 and hitting the road with THE RIDE performances starting later this month.
However, BOOM . . .
City officials informed us late last week that even though NYC is in Phase 4, THE RIDE is still not allowed to re-open. This is due to the nature of our enclosed bus and our inability to be in an “open air space”.
Truth to tell, this is only part of the problem. New York City remains deserted and the attractions that have opened are down 95% year-over-year.
So, now, THE RIDE optimistically turns its sights to the next window for reopening and that will be THE RIDE Holiday Edition. THE RIDE will have the opportunity to be the only live entertainment option NYC during this magical season. Please mark your calendars for a Thursday November 12th launch and we will run our 9th Annual HOLIDAY Edition of THE RIDE through Sunday January 3, 2021!
We are healthy, Department of Consumer Affairs and Department of Transportation certified and anxious to rev our motors and hit the streets of New York. Wishing you and your family healthy motors, too!
Stay tuned . . .
Love, THE RIDE
