You Never Know What or Who Might Pop Up!

Ghoulies, ghosts and zombies abound with an appetite for feasting and need to get down.

They came for a soiree, they came to sup. With macabre creatures like these, frightful things could pop up!


The Dinner With the Dead Pop Up Picnic
Saturday, October 24, 2015

For those of you who know, our legendary pop ups are amazing evenings, full of delicious food and contagious laughter. This year, we are partnering with the Murray Hill Preservation Society (who also puts on an amazing pop up) and the Friends of Murray Hill Library to make it a ghoulishly good affair!

And this time, the pop up will be held at…


You know we can’t tell you that. It’s a secret. We can, however, tell you the location will feature unearthly, grim and gruesome décor sure to set the stage for dining with things that go bump in the night.

Wait a minute. What is this pop up thing?

Modeled after a similar event that started in Paris, it’s a communal dinner party where nobody (except the organizers) knows the location until an hour before the start of dinner.
Interested in coming?

In order to participate, either you or one of your friends will sign up as a table captain. Each table captain will be responsible for organizing your dinner party (i.e. table) of six (6). That includes: inviting five (5) dinner companions; arranging decorations and assigning food and beverage responsibilities.

The cost of the evening is a $30 donation per person or $50 per couple.
