Culture on the Cheap
FRIDAY: Supper For A Good Cause
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
It’s been a long time— too long— since I have a nod to the wonderful Co-Pastors who operate the Greenpoint Reformed Church. Not only do these lovely ladies give succor to our neediest—- but they’re really cool to boot! This post is an attempt to catch up. Here it goes.
This upcoming Friday, September 17, they will be conducting a fund-raising supper for their food pantry and soup kitchen.
The (tentative) menu (whose produce/foodstuffs has been donated from local farms/businesses!) is as follows:
- Soup—Sunchoke with crispy brussel sprouts
- Salad—Vegetarian Nicoise: Lettuce, string beans, potatoes, boiled eggs, etc…
- Main Course—Creamy Polenta, fire roasted tomato ragout, grilled veggies, garlicky greens
- Dessert—(the most tentative menu item!) Sugared crepes, carmelized apples, Van Leeuwen ice cream (!)
A cocktail hour will be conducted in the backyard from 6:30 – 8:30 as well. Among the offerings are:
vodka with mint syrup and raspberries and bourbon with ginger juice and lemon—as well as wine–$8 suggested donation per drink.
This includes “snacks”. Check it out!
