The Slow Down 2019 - Slow Food NYC's Spring Soiree

  • Lighthouse 145 Borinquen Place Brooklyn, NY, 11211 United States (map)

Join us for our largest fundraiser of the year, The 8th Annual Slow Down, a convivial evening of great food, drink, and music, as we celebrate the 2019 Snailblazer honoree Naama Tamir, Owner of Lighthouse and Lighthouse Outpost. Naama is a fierce advocate and organizer for systems building surrounding sustainable restaurant practices in NYC. 

The 'Snailblazer' award is a designation granted to those leaders in the farm-to-table movement committed to a local, sustainable, and fair food system. Each year we recognize the work of the next Snailblazer with a convivial evening of good food & drink, bringing together New Yorkers for one spirited evening. 

This year's Slow Down celebration will be a spring soiree like no other! Hosted at Lighthouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the evening's festivities will feature music, wine, beer, a signature cocktail, silent auction with unique slow food experiences, and seasonal small bites featuring local producers & artisans.

VIP ticker holders will join Slow Food NYC for a VIP Oyster and Cocktail Hour from 6-7pm before the main event, granting you exclusive access to oysters and drinks & an opportunity to mix & mingle with New York City's food innovators. 

Party proceeds benefit Slow Food NYC's programs including Urban Harvest, which supports good food education and school garden programs in 11 NYC schools and a summer educational farm in East New York, Brooklyn. Urban Harvest reaches over 2,000 school children in New York City each year.
