Who’s up for an amazing adventure this week? I know I am!
Here’s something beyond awesome for you to do.
East Hampton-based LongHouse Reserve is heading to Brooklyn for one night only on Tuesday, March 15, in celebration of its jubilee year. The non-profit’s annual winter benefit, Design for Living, will be held at newly opened hotspot National Sawdust in Williamsburg and will include a special performance by Nona Hendryx, one of the founding members of Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles.
A highlight of this year’s benefit will be legendary textile designer and founder of LongHouse, Jack Lenor Larsen, presenting acclaimed architect Hugh Hardy with the LongHouse Award. Mr. Hardy is a founding partner of H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, responsible for such big deal projects as Lincoln Center Theater, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the restoration of Radio City Music Hall. During the festivities Mr. Hardy will also talk with Peter Zuspan, founding principal of Bureau V, the Brooklyn-based firm that re-designed the National Sawdust building. But wait, there’s more. James Beard Award winning Chef Patrick Connolly will be preparing dinner as well. Yum!
Hope you can make it!
Mark your calendars for July 23. That’s when LongHouse’s annual summer benefit will be held. The theme this year will be Serious Moonlight.
