On October 5, for their first event in the fall, the L&E Committee hosted committee members, AABANY colleagues, and beyond for a night of authentic Thai food and delicious cocktails at Top Thai Vintage in the West Village.
It was a night of mixing and mingling where conversations hit topics from committee developments/events, law firm practices, litigation trends, and more. It was a wonderful night out and perfect event to kick off our event calendar for the fall.

On October 22, 2022, AABANY held its 2022 Golf Outing at the historic Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort on a sunny autumn afternoon. The event was presented by the Women’s Committee, Corporate Law Committee, and Membership Committee.
The 27-hole world class golf course, which has hosted the PGA Championship, was designed by renowned architect A.W. Tillinghast. Carpools left New York City Saturday morning for the hour and a half drive to the Pocono Mountains. AABANY members, friends, family and children enjoyed the magnificent colors of the fall foliage on a picturesque day for golf. Golfers met at the Shawnee General Store for lunch and then hit the driving range for some practice swings. Five AABANY foursomes, including several beginners and first time golfers, teed off in the early afternoon and played several holes across water on an island in the middle of the Delaware River. Following the round, AABANY golfers dined together in the Shawnee Inn’s River Room at a table set for 20.
