I realize the above series of photographs might be a bit unclear, thus I will tender an explanation/description. Someone, upon spotting a discarded nicotine trans-dermal patch affixed to the sidewalk,  decided to draw a cigarette smoking kitty. Don’t believe me? Go to West Street between Milton and Noble and see it for yourself.

FRIDAY: Supper Club Fundraiser at the Greenpoint Reformed Church

October 19, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

I was recently asked by one of the amazing ladies in charge of the Greenpoint Reformed Church (and its Hunger Relief Program) if I would help spread the word about their upcoming Supper Club fundraiser. This I will gladly do as they have— and continue to do— great work here. Here’s the 411 for this event their press release:

We are really excited for our October dinner! Holler (who played at our first supper club last year) will be playing old-time country music in the backyard during our special cocktail hour. As always the meal is TBD, but how could it not include squash, leafy greens, apples and pears?

Our supper clubs are designed to celebrate our community while raising money for our weekly soup kitchen dinners in a communal and convivial spirit. Please join us!

Every week we work to provide delicious, quality (organic when possible) dinners for the hungry folks of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In the bountiful summer months of the year, we have a lot of help from awesome farmers who, via several local CSAs, allow us to glean their overflow. Times are tougher in the lean winter months-our goal is to raise enough money to pay for fresh quality food to last through those cold months. Consider this our “un-can” drive! Help us make sure that “the best” is available for EVERYONE-all year long.

Dinner will be a four-course vegetarian meal using the same great local, organic produce that we use in our Wednesday night meal. The dinner is served family style-which we hope adds to the convivial spirit of the event! BYO wine and come early for a special (extra charge) cocktail hour.

Because our menu relies on the most seasonal produce from local farmers, please stay tuned for the exact details of the meal…

NOTE: a suggested $20.00 donation is requested and you must R.S.V.P. to attend. You can do the latter via the Supper Club’s Facebook page. Otherwise, you can contact the event’s organizer via email at: annefay (at) gmail (dot) com. Check it out!
