EVENT DESCRIPTION

This is where it all began folks. Five years ago, when Butcher Paper Dinners were just a sparkle in our eye, rockstar chef Will Horowitz of the East Village's Duck's Eatery signed on to serve up our very first Crab Boil and Butcher Paper Dinner.

We knew we liked Chef Will right away when we jokingly suggested that we bring the crabs to the table in a wheelbarrow, and he was on board.  This guy -- this was our kinda guy -- and he still is.  And did we mention, he can cook!  With a Southeast-Asian-Cajun-influence and a decidedly-DIY vibe, Horowitz is a grower of mushrooms, a smoker of meats, a curer, pickler, fermentor and just generally a man who plays with his food.

For his fifth  (or is it sixth. We should probably stop counting) annual Butcher Paper dinner, Chef Horowitz will be slinging fresh oysters, followed by a bountiful crab boil piled high along our enormous reclaimed-oak communal table. Stunning views of Long Island City and the Manhattan skyline will present a little eye candy to offset the savory feast.

Add in sweet tunes, local brews, fine NY State wines and you've got yourself an afternoon.

Basically, it's gonna be one heck of a party.

SCHEDULE:
3pm - 4pm: Snacks, drinks, explore the farm
4pm: Dinner is served!

ABOUT BRONX BREWERY
We believe in doing one thing and doing it right. We believe that focus, attention, and innovation drive quality. That’s why we’re manically focused on brewing one single style of beer: the pale ale. We love that our beers are complex yet approachable, very flexible, and always balanced.

Summer Done Right: Our Summer Ale is the embodiment of those who don’t need much to make a memory. Brewed with lemon peel to be incredibly crisp and refreshing, it’s for those who know how to do summer right - with good weather, good friends and good beer. Delivered From Above.

ABOUT WHISK ME AWAY CAKES  
We're committed to using the global excitement around cakes, pastries, and traditional sweets to blur lines between cultures, races, and religions as we raise awareness around current issues.
