On Friday, November 18th, Sarah Bouissou Catering will be catering BEEFSTEAK - A Community Feast to benefit Founder's Hall.
Beef, booze and boisterous fun will kick off the 2016 Wreath Festival at the Beefsteak Community Feast to benefit Founders Hall. The Beefsteak will put a contemporary spin on a 19th–century, New York City tradition when groups of men would gather in dingy taverns or residential basements to tell stories, sing, eat steak and drink beer with abandon, often with the goal of raising funds for a local politician. Without women, etiquette was set aside, along with napkins and utensils. Instead, the men used aprons to cover their suits and avoid the stains of gluttony.
The Founders Hall Beefsteak will revive the best of the Beefsteak traditions with all-you-can-eat meat, bottomless libations, cocktail attire, complimentary aprons and fundraising for Founders Hall. Women are most definitely invited. The updated menu, catered by Sarah Bouissou, will appeal to all tastes, and cutlery will be available to rent (this is a fundraising event, after all).
Beefsteak revelers will also be among the first to purchase holiday wreaths, garlands and swags and to shop at the gift boutique. The Wreath Festival will continue on Nov. 19, 20 and 21, 10 am – 4pm each day. Over 100 decorated wreaths created by local artists, designers and businesses will be on display and for sale. Shoppers will find a home and holiday boutique stocked with unusual gift items, elegant home décor pieces, handcrafted art, miniature boxwood trees, garlands, swags, jewelry, accessories and more. An array of local performers will entertain guests throughout the weekend. There will also be an exhibit of art created by Founders Hall members.
