From the organizers:
*This is the kick-off of an experimental monthly Sunday Series by the Local, with a different rotating chef & a show each month.
Tickets can be bought online to reserve your place, or in-person (1st come, 1st served in person).
Calling all Queen Sugar fans, all fans of Mama Callie’s good eats–join us for a dinner & a show. We’ll be breaking out the projector & setting up a pop-up dining experience at the SCNTR for a viewing of the very 1st Queen Sugar episode (season 1) over food–& depending on interests of the crowd, we may turn it into a double-header & show the 1st, or maybe the most recent episode, from season 4.
Donations will be split between MAAVIS, for their mission of bringing together those directly affected by violence to reduce it in all its forms, & the Local, for trying to help restore a historic building downtown as a community restaurant. So before dinner is served, we’ll share a little about both of those efforts & this rotating chef & a show concept. And we’ll hear from Mama Callie about what food has meant to her over the years–if we ask her right, she may even tell us a story of hers around food (because food always has history & stories surrounding it)…
Recommended donations of $15, 1st come, 1st served (unless you pay ahead of time by buying a ticket above). Check the rough schedule for the night on the event page, & don’t come in too late & interrupt the show!
NOTE: Kids are welcome, but please be thoughtful about whether they will be willing to sit through an hour long show, & if you’d be willing to slip out if not to allow others to hear the show well. Parents can also look into it ahead of time to see if it feels ok for your little ones, as Queen Sugar can have some more mature content at times: www.imdb.com/title/tt4419214/?ref_=tt_pg
