I love serendipitous encounters that lead to new job opportunities. This happens more times than I can count since moving to New York and it not only makes you realize how tiny the city is, but how everyone loves to eat and drink. Last year while looking for a new apartment I saw a place in Chelsea with a young female relator. We ended up chit-chatting and exchanging recipes and business cards. A relator disguised as a die-hard-foodie, not the first I've encountered. I love it, it makes the awkward silence gaps of what to talk about disappear, food is a commonality.
I love wine as much as the next sorority sister, but what I love more than wine, especially during the summer, is a cold beer. Craft beers are all the rage so I'm excited to say that "beer dinners" and pairing beer with food have become more and more mainstream.
Turns out my relator friend (who I actually didn't get an apartment from) referred me to her friend and owner of Manchester Pub. Turns out they do beer dinners. Can you see where this is going ...
On June 27th at Manchester Pub located at 920 2nd Ave (corner of 49th) I will be serving two seatings for dinner, one at 6:30 PM and one at 9 PM. This five-course meal will be paired with Speakeasy Ales and Lagers. The theme, Great Gatsby, speakeasy feel. Makes sense right? Dressing up is encouraged.
Reserve your seats early by emailing Lawrence at lawrence@manchesterpubnyc.
