If you are into good, VERY good literature, plus you enjoy good, VERY good music, and yet…a drink (why not?!)…then this is the place to be!

When? On January 21st, 8pm!

The Bushwick Book Club hosts once a month great shows inspired in memorable books!

“Every year, we use a different Kurt Vonnegut book as inspiration for new songs, art, dance, food. It’s been our tradition since 2009 when Bushwick Book Club began at cafe/venue “Goodbye Blue Monday”. It is also the alternate title for  Vonnegut’s “Breakfast of Champions”.

Oh, I’m particularly excited to be holding our first show of 2016 at Counter Evolution because the owner and founder is Jim Malone who is also a musician and songwriter and Vonnegut lover. Not only is his space acoustically warm and perfect, but he loves Vonnegut. Perfect gets more perfect,” says Susan Hwang.

The event is called GALAPAGOS by Kurt Vonnegut. Plus, several fine songwriters and choreographers will be filling the room with book-inspired sound and movement.

Entrance is by donation and you can also BYOB – Bring Your Own Bottle!!! So, feel free to bring in any type of booze that makes your heart smile, lol.

FYI: Just for those who do not know – Counter Evolution sells stunning handcrafted furniture #MadeinBrooklyn from reclaimed bowling lanes.

See you all at the Bushwick Book Club!

If you enjoy these types of events, you might also consider reading about Bluestockings Bookstore. They are a community-driven bookstore that hosts fantastic events. They bring in some of the most brilliant minds to share experiences, teach and engage with all guests.

Besides their stories, we also go to their events not only to support, but because their work is definitely worth seeing live and learning about!

We’ve interviewed a while ago an amazing artist called Fernanda Feher. In no time, she became a really close friend and we became huge fans of her work!

Fernanda is hosting a 1 month exhibition of her latest work called “While you were Sleeping“. It’s a project curated by the one and only Janaina Tschape!

The opening reception will be on October 22nd. It will happen from 6pm – 9pm at the Fine & Raw Chocolate Factory in Bushwick, Brooklyn! The place is the coolest Bushwick chocolate factory and everything there is delicious!

The exhibition will be on until November 22nd!

See you all there!

Even though this party is quite well known by New Yorkers and tourists, it’ one of the best events in New York. The Jazz Age Lawn Party is an outdoor day party on Governor’s Island that takes you back on a journey.

What to expect? Amazing music, dances, great food & drinks and performances.

As a result, guests dress up with very creative clothes and props. It definitely gives you a nostalgic feeling of experiencing the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Check-out the amazing video below done by our Visual Storyteller Oli Alexander, exclusive for BTSNYC!!!


More about the Jazz Age Lawn Party:

“The Jazz Age Lawn Party, now in its 11th year, is New York City’s original prohibition era inspired gathering. Hosted and conceived by Michael Arenella in 2015, the event started as a small gathering of fifty friends.
They came together on Governors Island to revel in the music of the Jazz Age, as performed by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland.

The event is carefully crafted and nurtured, growing into one of New York City’s most beloved summer events. This historically sold out event attracts 20,000 fans over two weekends. Guests come together to discover music and zeitgeist of the 1920s and 1930s. Plus, they learn the hottest dance steps of the time, frolic in their flapper dresses and glad rags. Plus, they enjoy sophisticated bites and vintage-inspired cocktails in a romantic, playful setting.

The event is consistently selected by the New York Times as one of “New York’s most memorable events”. The party offers a unique, interactive experiences.”


Lastly, costumes are not mandatory, but yes, dressing up as if you were in living in 20’s and 30’s is recommended.

So, if you have no idea where to start from with your costume, Dora Marra can help you with the best accessories!

In addition, don’t forget that our experts can also give you a hand in recommending a few spots to dress up and even organizing the entire experience for you!

Have fun at NYC’s Jazz Age Lawn Party!

The Natural Gourmet Institute was founded on the principle that what we eat significantly affects our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Of course, we couldn’t agree more with this statement, since we are huge believers of “we are what we eat”.

They’ve created a framework for healthy food selection. It’s based on high quality ingredients, concepts of Eastern & Western nutrition and a variety of dietary paradigms.

They offer different types of courses, like the ones below:

  • Summer Immersions: A summer course where you learn not only the theory, but also have hands-on classes;
  • Certificate Programs: Students work and meet accomplished chefs, industry experts and partners;
  • Classes: Some last 5+ days, other 3 days, others only a couple of hours. Student go home ready to experiment in their own kitchen;
  • Professional Training: You’ll master the art of healthy cooking through 600 hours of rigorous, life-changing culinary education.

Furthermore, most of the products used are organic, which we particularly enjoy, since we only shop organic.

Plus, they offer a super unique Friday Night Dinner. This three-course vegetarian dinner is both innovative and beautifully presented. Something New Yorkers love! They charge $45/person, which is a super reasonable price for a NY dinner. And last, it’s a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle), so feel free to bring in which ever drink makes you smile!

And don’t forget to check out their book store. You’ll find amazing books that are actually pretty hard to find out there.

Alternatively, to organize an experience with friends with true NYC cooking classes or to put together a corporate activity for your clients or team, contact our experts to learn more. It will be an amusing activity for everyone!

Komeeda: A Thanksgiving For Friends, By Friends

Events Up Coming Friendsgiving Komeeda

Do you guys remember of the post about a summer “Dinner Under the Bridge” pop-up by Komeeda we wrote a few weeks ago? Well, here’s another Komeeda pop-up for you – last one of 2015! It’s a Thanksgiving For Friends.

Events Up Coming Friendsgiving Komeeda

We love everything about Komeeda’s Thanksgiving For Friends: Friendsgiving.

Last year, Komeeda hosted the “kommunity’s” members for a multi-course Spanish style tapas meal. This year they are doing it bigger, better and…in Brooklyn! We just love it, after all, we are Brooklyn-based!

They have partnered up with a rustic venue and two of Komeeda’s favorite chefs Chef Florvil Valdez and Chef Paula Ignacio. Both are former chefs from their Showdown event, where chefs compete for the 1st place title!

If you’ve been to their last two Showdowns, you’ve had a couple of their to-die-for culinary creations. Now, they will be teaming up and putting together an innovative multi-course Friendsgiving feast for their kommunity.

Date: Thursday – November 19, 2015
Time: 6:30pm – 9pm
Location: Downtown Brooklyn – exact location will be disclosed 48 hours prior to event only to those with confirmed tickets
Availability: 30 Seats
Tickets: Early Bird RSVP: $55 (SOLD OUT)  |  Standard RSVP: $60


To read about how it all started, read Jabber Al-Bahani’s statement below:

“Waking up in a hostel in Barcelona one morning, a fellow hostel-mate asked… “comida?”

What I assumed would be a quick lunch with an Argentinian hostel-mate, quickly grew into a group lunch with seven people from all over. Australia, Holland, Argentina, Spain, Libya, France, and of course… me the New Yorker.

We enjoyed two hours of food and drink at a mom & pop tapas restaurant off the beaten path, sharing our journeys & dreams for the future; all with no worry of judgement. I never expected to have this unforgettable experience with the random people that I met, but it felt so natural!

Komeeda is an easy way to discover unique gastronomic events, taste exciting new foods, and interact with other interesting guests, in addition to the passionate chefs who want to share their stories.

To find the perfect family-style Ethiopian feast, low-key beer & burger pairing, or whatever dining experience is right for you, explore Komeeda’s events.”

So, if their story excited you, don’t waist more time and go buy your ticket!

See you there!

The event gathered 120 amazing people and raised funds to graduate 70 new cooks in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!

Take a look at the fantastic outcome of Gastromotiva Benefit Dinner NYC night on the video below!

And still, a little more about Gastromotiva:

 
Gastromotiva began operations in São Paulo in 2006, followed by Rio de Janeiro in 2013 and Salvador in 2014. It will soon open in other cities in Brazil and Latin America.
In addition to Vocational Kitchen Training, we encourage dissemination of Social Gastronomy in Brazil and worldwide. Why? To show food’s powers to transform.
Good work is always recognized.

Gastromotiva has become a bellwether in Brazil for its power to transform not only in the gastronomic market, but also in the third sector. In the name of founder David Hertz, the organization has received awards and tributes which enhance the value to the initiatives and projects undertaken.”


Also, we are very fond of working close to charities in New York and promoting their work. Feel free to reach out and contribute in ways, at your reach.

In addition, if you are a company, and have an upcoming Gala, we work with fantastic customized experiences that can be auctioned to help raise money.
