Duck’s Eatery’s Famous Crab Boil
August 26th , 3pm - 7pm
Brooklyn Grange, Flagship Farm in Long Island City
This is where it all began folks. Six 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.
This is his sixth annual Butcher Paper dinner, but we’ve officially decided to stop counting! 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.
3pm - 4pm: Snacks, drinks, explore the farm
4pm: Dinner is served!
ABOUT BLUE POINT BREWING
Where we’re from, the people are a different breed. New Yorkers want more than the status quo, they want you to skip the bullshit and give it to them straight. Yeah, we’ve got humble beginnings, but that’s just who we are. Hell, our founders tapped Blue Point’s very first keg in a parking lot.
At Blue Point, we brew beer that stands up to New York's standards. We know it’s good, they know it’s good, and if someone disagrees, fuck ‘em. We first and foremost brew beer that we want to drink. If there’s some leftover, we’ll sell it.
ABOUT BRIDGE LANE
Produced by Lieb Cellars, a small farm-winery on the North Fork of Long Island, Bridge Lane is named after the farm road adjacent to one of Lieb’s vineyards and is Lieb’s second label. The grapes for Bridge Lane wines are grown sustainably on Lieb's estate vineyard and sourced from some of the best vineyard sites in New York State. We grow (and find) the good stuff!
ABOUT WHISK ME AWAY CAKES
