Our inner host(ess) with the most(ess) has broken loose, blitzed on wine coolers, with a stack of O.G. Better Homes & Gardens to inspire the party–planning. For TBA, Team Delicious and our cocktail soul mates, Merit Badge, will bring back a bygone era when “entertaining” meant
more than a kale salad.

It’s dated, it’s decadent, it’s easy, yet elegant. Think “your tipsy Aunt with smeared lipstick.” Think “close talking.” Think “baked potato bar.” We can’t promise much in this world, but we can suggest: cheeseburger towers, vegetable casseroles, cocktail wieners, fruit cocktail jello shots, tropically–inclined beverages, upside–down pineapple desserts, and ice box cakes. We’ll be in the kitchen where we always are, the perennial LOAF OF THE PARTY.

TEAM DELICIOUS is an event specific experiential food project bag of mixed nuts. One part Liz Calderón (Special–Projects), one part Jake Sheffield (Grüner/Kask) and one part collection of collaborators from chefs to artists to professional goofballs (Will Bryant Studio).

Merit Badge is a delicious drinkery run by Matt Mount and Heather Hawksford. Punches! Pineapples! Parasols! Come gather around their flowing bowl and quench your late-night thirsts.

Outdoor bar opens nightly at 9:30 PM.
