Food & Beverage - Week of May 13, 2019
Our next Suckling Pig feast will feature all the favorite street food of Korea. Yes, there will be tteokbokki. However, this version will be more saucy and ubiquitous than our ever popular Street Style. Twigim (fried things!) to dip into that sauce. Rice balls in fried tofu skin. Steamed buns with sweet red beans. The night of May 13th will be conversational, delicious, and bursting with fond stories from Chef Ji Hye's childhood! Get your tickets here

Starting with one… is about how one small thing can make a difference and, over time, they can add up! It could be one meal, one volunteer, one monetary donation, one hour of your time, etc. While we raise a lot of funds through the event, we consider it more of a way of showing appreciation for our many volunteers!
