Water Into Wine: A Pop-up Feast
Let's: Start disrupting undignified restaurant practices by gathering for an experimental restaurant project at a private pop-up location. Join a completely seasonal, local, sustainable, vegetarian, organic underground feast. *ALL of Chowbunga's fees will be donated to YANA - A Hurricane Sandy-related relief effort.*
We’d love to host: New friends and community members interested in partaking in a warm, communal and eco-friendly feast. Vanessa believes this event should be affordable for all. If you currently cannot afford a ticket, please contact the host directly and she will gladly accept an exchange of services or products!
Tickets are all inclusive (as with all Chowbunga Pop-ups)
Water into Wine (WIW) is an experimental restaurant project with the mission of improving the efficiency and footprint of restaurants via a series of Sunday dinners and eventually a flagship location. The hope is to completely redesign all traditional restaurant practices. Restaurants are great places for people to enjoy the company of friends and family --But they can be better.
A dedicated volunteer, Chris Devlin, who has worked closely with this project will be coming straight from the Rockaways on Sunday evening to speak with dinner guests. If you’re interested, you can sign up with Chris to volunteer in the coming weeks.
Secondly, we have finalized a fantastically talented musical guest for an after dinner performance. We are keeping her identity a secret for now, but we hope that you’ll sign up for the dinner in order to find out who she is, and on Sunday be treated to a spectacular performance.
Last but not least, Helena Schouenborg, a lovely chef, yoga instructor, and infinitely talented friend has joined the WIW team as a consultant and chef. She’ll be there on Sunday helping with cooking, and speaking about her experiences as a vegetarian chef!
We are really looking forward to this launch event, and are waiting to hear back from several cutting edge visual and environmental artists about a potential post-dinner workshop.
$34 for 5 courses (Bring your own beverage)
$42 for 5 courses plus custom wine pairings for each course
Both include complimentary cocktails
Vanessa believes this event should be affordable for all guests. If your current financial situation does not allow for this price range, please contact the host directly and she will gladly accept an exchange of services or products! Seriously!
