At a lovely brownstone party Daily Challenge publisher Tom Watkins celebrated his 83rd birthday early with a host of family and friends in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020. Held at The Comos Club, the whole delightful shindig was entitled “Tommy Watkins 165th Semi Annual Birthday,” dapper as always, he greeted guests, posed for dozens upon dozens of pictures and embraced family and longtime friends all evening. A key figure in the Brooklyn community for decades, Watkins was honored by the presence of prominent electeds and local business folk such as Assemblywoman Tremaine Wright, and former Assembly and City Council members Annette Robinson and Al Vann.
