Under the lights of Downtown Las Vegas’ El Cortez Walkway that bridges the Las Vegas Blvd. to the property’s 6th street entrance is where the next Project Dinner Table event will take place. Set for Saturday, Aug. 7, the event begins at 7 p.m. with social hour in the Emergency Arts Building, formerly known as the Fremont Medical Center.
So what is Project Dinner Table? It’s the dinner event series the community is talking about. The idea is simple: reconnect and make new friends while enjoying dinner at the event’s signature, long while table draped in white tablecloths. Bring back meaningful conversation while enjoying a one night only 6-course menu inspired by local and regional purveyors that is served family-style. Poetry is read. Gift bags are given out, filled with coffees, sauces and seedlings prepared by your neighbors who just happened to also be farmers and growers. (Yes, a LOT is grown in Southern Nevada – from garlic to fruits and much more.) Each event seats up to 150. Every dinner takes place in a unique setting, only accessible via events such as Project Dinner Table. This is figuratively and literally a grassroots effort.
The Aug. 7 dinner will be the fourth in the series of seven. Executive Chef, Jeff Braun of The Mirage will prepare the feast incorporating locally-grown produce and herbs into his dishes.
Tickets are $125 per person and include dinner, entertainment, gift bags, philanthropy as well as all cocktails and coffee.
