Backyard Potluck with Beyond Bubbie
April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| 2-12
The City Reliquary welcomes the Reboot initiative Beyond Bubbie for an informal Shabbat-style potluck dinner and storytelling event.
Celebrate the rich, diverse narratives of New York City food culture through a dinner in the Reliquary garden. Share tales of your grandmother’s casseroles, your favorite bodega bacon-egg-and-cheese, or your go-to dim sum spot. Marinate in stories from neighbors spanning boroughs and generations while noshing on dishes from kitchens in all corners of the city.
Potluck participants should bring a food that evokes a memory. All guests are invited to bring a prop, poem, or song–something non-edible to facilitate sharing a story with the group.
Scared to share? Contact Zoe Penina Baker from Reboot for help workshopping your story.
If bringing a dish: $2 online/$5 at door. You must have the dish with you for entry at this price.
General admission: $9 online/$12 at door
City Reliquary members: $7 online/$10 at door
Online tickets available through Artfully.
This event is part of the public programs for the current Reliquary exhibition Heroes of the Knish. This show explores the intersections of memory, food culture, and the immigrant history of New York City.
