Cafe Edna is excited to invite you to join us at our first HOLIDAY PARTY on Saturday, December 20 from 8-10PM. We’re looking forward to celebrating everything we’ve shared at the restaurant and in the neighborhood with drinks, food, music and amazing company. Friends, family, foes, flames and other associates are warmly welcome.
Tickets are $20 per person at the door and include an unlimited two-hour open bar with appetizers. We will be honoring the groundbreaking work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City and a portion of your ticket sales will be directly donated towards the life-changing relationships they help develop and nurture. We encourage you to think about volunteering as an older sibling yourself.
Come hungry, come thirsty, come to unwind and start the evening off right with all of your Greenpoint friends! Our very own local celebrity — Dana Rachlin — will be guest bartending throughout the evening and, much to our chagrin, she’s got a mighty heavy-hand. Buy your tickets today and see you there!
