I Forgot It’s Wednesday (IFIW) is a concept that the talented Jenny Dorsey started with her husband 2 years ago after meeting him at Columbia Business School. It is a unique dining experience in NYC.
During Business School, Jenny and her husband Matt, found it difficult to find a comfortable environment to meet interesting strangers and talk openly with friends. So, they started the I Forgot It’s Wednesday dinners with a unique mission to actively engage people on a deeper level.
Jenny is a professional chef and has a background in fine dining. Most recently she was part of the team at 2 Michelin starred Atera, in New York City. Her husband, Matt, a self-taught mixologist, recently won the Star Chefs Cocktail Competition. Amazing duo, right?
Since January 2014 they’ve hosted 70+ dinners, including 3 large scale popup events.
They just relaunched their dining experiences in New York City last month, after taking over San Francisco by storm last year.
They were named the “#1 supperclub in SF” by the prestigious 7×7 magazine, over Michelin-starred Lazy Bear! In addition, SF Weekly, Eater and other renowned publications featured them!
Their February relaunch was profiled by UrbanDaddy. They’ve since been written up in Huffington Post and Epoch Taste as well!
