BOO! (That’s a regular boo, like this sucks.)
Due to impending buckets of rain and suspended MTA service, tonight’s GASTROBALL at the Brooklyn Brewery has been canceled. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but you can blame it all on that pesky Hurricane Sandy.
This was a fundraiser for our Classrooms in the Kitchen program, so if you feel compelled to donate the fee, we salute you. If you are donating, stop by the store this week to pick up your bag of candy and goodies! If you need your money back, that’s totally cool too. Just contact us at the store to let us know and we’ll process it right away.
Many, many thanks to Brooklyn Brewery for offering to host the event, and also the following vendors for donating candies, apples, dj services, gift cards, crack pies and so much more.
Brooklyn Brewery - Enid’s Restaurant - Canal House - FingerLakes Farms - Momofuku Milk Bar - Ruth Bourdain - Darin & Greg Breznitz/Finger on the Pulse - Chef Johnny Iuzzini - Mary-Frances Heck/Bon Appetit - Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche - City Reliquary - Ovenly - Liddabit Sweets - Salty Road - Ki’Xocolatl - Food 52 - Mile End Deli - Saltie - Vine Wine
