The crowd was far more manageable than last (up to 300, this time we’d say 150) and the way we managed food distribution ran sooo smoothly and there was even some left overs (we ran out last time).
The meal was more delicious than ever with goat cheese and homemade ramp jam spread on loaves with arugula accompanied by a bed of orzo and spring vegetables. It was light and refreshing, a perfect way to celebrate the warming weathering.
There was great electro beats to bump to played by a duo on their magic machines as well as make uppers who glammed us up with sprinkles and pink claws and feathered eyebrows. Fabulous.
We raised more money this time around even though fewer people joined the reverie. $1000 went to The Great Trans-Gowanus Cable project where a telegraph will be built across the Gowanus Canal and people can give and receive message via morse code. I love how we’ve been voting for projects that really incorporate sense of community, intimacy, unity, and general social well being. I actually voted for a guy in greenpoint who wanted to curate a show inside a gym. Sound potential to me. Runners up received $400 to support a project that creates local currency that circulates with the help of businesses and artists. The other project incorporates unemployed artists as dancers for a performance piece.
Suzanne over at fashion skool of hard knocks reports on the dinner as well with some pretty sweet pics.
I’m very excited to announce FEAST will be merging with NBPAC for the next dinner, to take place in front of the then to be completed India Street Mural Project. Woo Hoo!
