Apple Fans Celebrating Steve Jobs' 57th Birthday with Party at Fifth Avenue Retail Store
Today would have been Steve Jobs' 57th birthday, and a number of Apple fans are taking the opportunity to commemorate his life and legacy, with the topic currently appearing on Twitter's list of top trending topics worldwide.
Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
A pair of Apple fans in New York City are planning a party in Jobs' honor at outside Apple's flagship Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan.
To fete what would have been Jobs’ 57th birthday, dancers will gyrate to Bob Dylan songs while vegetarian birthday cake is served and black turtlenecks are handed out to hundreds of Apple fans, according to the event’s organizers, Brendan McElroy and Seth Rogers. [...]
“If you want to respect his memory, the best way of doing it is focusing on a lot of the positive memories we have of him,” [Rogers] said.
The party is planned to take place from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM today, and CNBC earlier today aired an interview with the two organizers about their plans.
