Association Dinner

Association dinners partner a rotating chef and a speaker for an evening of great food, tasty libations, and inspired conversation with an intimate crowd. Returning from a hiatus on April 17th in celebration of Design Week, the talk will center around the focus of Interior Design, with Andee Hess of Osmose Design, Gray Magazine, and the powerhouse team of chefs behind LaMama - Sam Smith (Ava Gene's/Zahav), Nora Antene (Le Pigeon), and Wesley Johnson (Castagna).

The $65 ticket price includes appetizers, dinner, dessert, and an open bar with craft cocktails, wines, and beers. Gratuity is additional.
