Friends, Poets, Gastrolaters!

A Benefit for Poets House

Feb 9, 2015 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Myra Shapiro

This is a special benefit for Poets House that helps keep our programming free or low cost.

Join us for an evening of friendship-in-poetry celebrating the sumptuous art of fine dining with poets Frank Bidart, Eleanor Chai, Daniel Halpern, Sharon Olds, former US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey, and Kevin Young.

We’ll start our night at Poets House with effervescent toasts amidst an intimate exhibition of holiday cards created by poets, then walk to Danny Meyer’s lauded North End Grill for a meal designed by Chef Eric Korsh. Wine pairings by celebrated importer Neal Rosenthal add sensory stimulus to this tantalizing literary and culinary evening.

6 – 7pm: Champagne Toasts at Poets House
7 – 9pm: Dinner with Fine Wine Pairings & Poetry at North End Grill

Tickets: $750 ($500 tax-deductible) Places are limited.
