From Brooklyn Based:
“When you join us next Tuesday, November 27 at Brooklyn Brewery, you’ll hear stories about kitchen mishaps and surviving Hurricane Sandy with Brooklyn chefs and authors including Allison Robicelli of Robicelli’s cupcakes fame, who ran a relief center out of her apartment that produced thousands of sandwiches for affected people, then started the Bay Ridge Cares Kitchen now run by Occupy Sandy, Leisah Swenson and Monica Byrne of home/made in Red Hook, and Jami Attenberg, author of the new, acclaimed novel, The Middlesteins, will be reading a juicy tale from a chef who dare not reveal him/herself.
Afterward Work It Brooklyn will lead one of their signature speed networking sessions, this time for food professionals seeking work and new opportunities. You don’t have to be a food pro or network to have fun, though–we’ll also have food from Porchetta, Dreamscoops, Anarchy in a Jar, and Growing Chefs plus raffle giveaways from Seersucker, Farm on Adderley,Frankies, Parish Hall, TALDE, Thistle Hill Tavern, and more.
Raffle and ticket sales will benefit ReStore Red Hook, which is helping businesses devastated by Hurricane Sandy (the majority of businesses on their site suffered damages of $50,000 or more, and they need help reaching their goal). Food vendors will also donate 10% of sales to ReStore Red Hook and Brooklyn Brewery will donate a beer token to each guest attending.
Tickets are $15 and include a free beer and one raffle ticket. You can also select “Donate More!” to support ReStore Red Hook even further.”
