Dominican Cuisine, Support Mexico Re-Building Post Earthquake, A Exploratory Evening at Green-Wood, + A Day of Pickles
To celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Essex Street Market is inviting chef Yadira Garcia to give a demonstration and lesson on Dominican cuisine. Taste her homemade sofrito and arroz con habichuelas. Some of the proceeds go to Wellness in the Schools to help fight childhood obesity.
NYC chef Fany Gerson (the owner of Dough and La Newyorkina) is originally from Mexico City and has put together this evening of Mexican chefs and mixologists to help support the relief efforts to rebuild schools in the areas of Mexico affected by the recent earthquakes. Admission to the event at the Remezcla Headquarters is based on a donation to the Global School Spirit Foundation.
For the third year, Atlas Obscura presents a mysterious evening of music and performance at Green-Wood Cemetery. This is an exploratory evening that will feature interactive and surprising performances throughout the grounds. And the company will invite you to join them into a world between the living and the dead. This is a final performance after the first on Friday night.
Walk up and down Orchard Street like our ancestors did and have a pickle here, there, and everywhere. The street will transform into a pickle bazaar with over 20 pickle businesses serving all sorts of twists on the classic pickled vegetable. Come for the pickles, stay for the live music, games, and the home pickling/dancing competition.
