Halloween at Red Rooster and Ginny's Supper Club

RoosterHalloween5

Halloween is one of our favorite events over at the Roo and Ginny's Supper Club, and this year we have events for everyone.

For those with children, join us at "Boo at the Roo," a fun day of games, prizes, a maze, and of course candy at Red Rooster.

Once the kids are tucked away, the freaks come out to play! At night, we have three fun events, which we hope to see you at. At 7:30pm, we have an extra spooky supper club at Ginny's. ELEW will be performing live while we show a silent horror film in the background. At 9:30, we will transition Ginny's into our Freaks Come Out at Night Halloween Party with headliners DJ Evil Dee & Mr. Walt of Da Beatminerz. Both events are $15 and tickets can be bought here. We'll also be having a costume contest with great prizes.

If you prefer old school hip hop, you can head upstairs to Red Rooster for DJ Kool Herc's Hip Hop Halloween. Entry is free, and we'll be there dancing the night away until close.

We hope to see you there!

Advanced Screening of Parts Unknown: Ethiopia

Parts Unknown Ethiopia

I am thrilled at the opportunity that CNN, Food Republic, and Tadias Magazine have given me to highlight the behind the scenes moments of Anthony Bourdain's episode of "Parts Unknown" featuring Ethiopia on Monday, October 19th at 7pm at Ginny's Supper Club. The episode we filmed will air on CNN on October 25th, but this advanced screening on Monday will allow you all to join Maya and me in an informal setting as we watch the episode and engage in discussion following.

I've been a fan of Parts Unknown since it aired in 2013. I loved having the opportunity to show my good friend Tony around Ethiopia, trying to reveal some of the unknown areas both to him and his many viewers. It was rewarding to realize have far I have come in my explorations of my native country (and how much I still have to discover). My wife Maya and I had a blast bringing Tony to Addis Adaba, which is the capital city of Ethiopa and often considered to be the political capital of all of Africa. We made sure that Tony got to sample a large mix of food, sounds, and sights in this busy metropolis. We also brought Tony to Maya's family in the Gurage region to experience the somewhat more modest life in an Ethiopian village (although the village feast we were served hardly seems like it could be labeled as "modest").

I'm looking forward to sharing more about the making of this episode at the event at Ginny's on Monday. We will also be featuring some specialty cocktails and Ethiopian-focused small plates to bring some of the smells and tastes from the episode to you as well.

I hope to see you there!

Terrance McKnight Comes to Ginny's Salon Series

On Thursday, March 5th, join me at Ginny's Supper Club for the latest installment of the Ginny's Salon Series. Starting at 7:30pm, we'll spend the night in conversation with musical talent Terrance McKnight about his experiences and how he is able to keep his work relevant today.

Terrance McKnight is currently the WQXR weekday evening host, and previously the host of former Saturday evening program, All Ears With Terrance McKnight, a show about musical discovery which was honored with an ASCAP Deems Taylor Radio Broadcast Award in 2010. His musical experiences — from glee club soloist and accomplished pianist, to professor at Morehouse College, and finally as producer and host of several music programs for public radio — have consistently juxtaposed the European Classical tradition alongside American classic traditions, such as jazz, gospel, African American spirituals and other musical genres.
