Do you want to sup and sip under the stars on a fancy beach, inhaling food created by the city's best chefs? Do you want to enjoy Island Creek oysters in their native environment? Do you prefer your craft cocktails in a swanky setting? And does such gluttony seem rather sensible, maybe even justified, since the proceeds will go to charity? Then you're in luck! Island Creek's Friends for Haiti tickets go on sale tomorrow, and the star-studded bash happens on September 8.
To summarize: A posh tent on the sandy Duxbury Beach dunes with entertainment, a cigar lounge, lots of Island Creek oysters, cocktails courtesy the Hawthorne's Jackson Cannon, and dishes from:
Jeremy Sewall (Lineage and ICOB)
Jody Adams (Rialto and Trade)
Jonathan Benno (New York City's the Lincoln)
Mary Dumont (Harvest)
Michael Schlow (Happy's, Radius, Tico, etc.)
Patricia Yeo (Moksa)
Robert Grant (The Blue Room)
...among others. Yes, the price is $250, but surely you paid attention to our warm-weather foodie pilgrimage slideshow, dined wisely, and have a bit of money to spare to bid adieu to summer in style. Proceeds benefit Caribbean Harvest, a Haitian tilapia-farming initiative that provides needy families with fish-farming kits (a source of income and food). Get your tickets tomorrow, right here.
