A Year Later, Tim on Tap

One year ago tonight, the top line here ran thus: "Well, gang, greetings from the Big Apple...."

The rest, as they say, is history -- the next morning, after a memorable month of frenzied waiting, B16 named Tim Dolan to the archbishopric of New York.

It's been an eventful year, and really hard to believe where the time's gone... but, well, here we are again.

Fresh off his 60th birthday earlier this month, tonight Dolan will celebrate the milestone with an unprecedented event for a holder of the post dubbed the "American Pope" as the tenth archbishop takes over a Midtown bar to kick off the city's Lenten run of Theology on Tap.

And, indeed, your pages are here to cover it.

The festivities are slated to start around 7.30 ET. And for all the rest, just kick back, relax and enjoy the feed -- but click the play button first.

SVILUPPO: As the Gotham media's learned well what their Milwaukee counterparts held as Gospel -- namely, "Timmy = Ratings" -- an anniversary sitdown (well, part of it) ran tonight on the city's top-rated WABC:
