Catch Future Generations at the Next Wild Honey Pie Dinner (1/24)

All images © Jackie Roman

Lately, one of the hottest tickets in Greenpoint is to the series of dinners being hosted by The Wild Honey Pie. The monthly event, which began last year, starts with a three-course dinner before a small set by an up-and-coming artist. The dinner party has been held at several locations around the neighborhood including Archestratus Books + Food on Huron Street. Needing to find a bigger space that can accommodate more guests and equipment, they’ve moved over to Le Fanfare (1103 Manhattan Ave). That’s where this month’s dinner will be held on the 24th with the local band Future Generations.

It also happens to be where last month’s dinner happened when the guest musicians were Wilder Maker. In need of a nice pre-Christmas night out, I checked it out with a neighborhood friend. As with the dinner on the 24th, $40 gets you everything you could need. Continue reading
