Welcome to the event page for FEAST: A Literary Dinner Party. It takes place on what should be a blissful balmy June evening in a stunning and spacious loft and rooftop in Bushwick. Read on for how (we think) you should spend an (almost) summer night in Brooklyn.
A Literary Dinner Party
What is it: FEAST is an informal gathering for writers and eaters. It is for writers who like to eat and for eaters who like to write.
What else is it? A spring themed evening, FEAST offers an intimate farm table for you (and just 15 others) to re-grease your writing wheels and re-fill your glasses. There will be a (very) locally sourced 4-course plated dinner while published author Jenn Mattson curates a light workshop as well as some literary discussions and readings.

She currently works as a cheesemonger at Stinky Bkyln and as a cook and kitchen manager at Ripper’s- a surf shack outpost from the owners of Roberta’s and The Meat Hook in Rockaway beach. And while she really loves cheese and flipping burgers, she really just wants to cook fresh food for cool people.
