We’re so excited for Wednesday’s Not-So-Silent Auction, and you should be, too. We’re going to have a great mix of art, food, and fun. We’d like to take a minute to send some virtual hugs and kisses to our sponsors—without them, our night would be a little less spirited.
First off, we’re going to have the world famous Kimchi Taco truck parked right outside. They’ll be outside before the event, so feel free to chow down on some Korean BBQ on before heading inside for the auction.
Once you’re in, we’ll have hors d’oeuvres and all the cocktails you’ll need to wash them down. We’ve got savory: mini-pizzas and snacks from Mike’s Pizza; appetizers from Bottino and Zampa; artisan cheese from Consider Bardwell Farm; and fresh bread from Tom Cat Bakery. Then, straight from Long Island City, we’ve got sweet: Bartleby & Sage has given us brownies, macaroons, and other rich desserts fitting the season and Court Square Diner has given us the joy of pie and baklava. Your bellies will be happy.
Our bartenders are currently devising some top-secret signature cocktails for the night, but what we can tell you is that we’ll have Sailor Jerry spiced rum, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and Perry’s Tot gin generously donated from the NY Distilling Company. For all you beer drinkers out there, we’ll have Lagunitas. For all you wine drinkers out there, we’ve got that, too.
Of course, you should stay for reasons other than the treats, but we’re thankful that we’ve been given so much this year by our wonderful sponsors. If you haven’t already, buy a ticket to this year’s event!
