Come join us in celebrating the Argos Inn having received the Preservation League of New York State’s 2017 award for Excellence In Historic Preservation!
We will celebrate this award by having our own small-town-Ithaca version of the Preservation League’s swanky award ceremony which was held last month in the historic Manhattan Yacht Club. Our ceremony will be thanking the artisans and others who worked so diligently together to restore this beautiful property into the bustling, well-loved gathering space that it is today. We will have before-and-after photos on display, complimentary finger foods, and a plethora of historic cocktails to imbibe.
Avi Smith, the Argos owner, will be giving tours of the building talking about the renovation as well as showing the now completed third floor hotel suites which are so fresh that the plaster walls haven’t even dried yet!
On this night we will also be paying respects to the eclectic history of bar culture by encouraging 1920’s era ‘speakeasy’ attire. Anything fabulous and/or vintage will do 🎩
Gathering begins: 5pm
Tours: 5:30 & 6pm
Toast and Awards: 6:30pm

We had so much fun playing this Porchfest! Thank you so much to all of you who came out. This was our second year performing on Tioga St. and we hope to do it again next year. This year was special to us because we were able to collaborate with other great musicians in our area. Matt played a number of classical guitar pieces with Bill Hurley (on violin), and our friend Isaac Sharp, who recently moved to town, performed some amazing arrangements on the same porch.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Porchfest – you’ve got to check it out. Bands play on their own or a friend’s porch. They schedule the musicians in one of four time slots and then provide maps, so everyone can walk or bike around town catching all the great music. And there is a lot of great music! Over 100 bands are playing this year, with music ranging from classical to roots rock to country to pop to reggae to punk rock and from Appalachian to Brazilian to Irish to Swedish to Zimbabwean. And more!
Lily and Matt are musical duo who perform an eclectic mix of songs accompanied by virtuoso nylon string guitar. Their repertoire ranges from jazz standards to quirky modern pop to European ballads. You might hear Cole Porter, then something by Fiona Apple, followed by a popular French song or If I Only Had a Brain. Also, the duo enjoys a variety of languages and perform songs in English, Russian, Spanish, German and French.
