NYC Servers Show Off Their Real Talents At "Not My Day Job"
New York is filled with millions of talented people who don't get to do what they love as their day job. Because of the high price of rent and the limited number of paying performance gigs, most creatives are left working restaurant industry jobs during the evenings in order to make auditions, dance classes and voice lessons during the early mornings and still afford to live here.
But, for one glorious afternoon, some of those gifted workers will get their chance to shine without having to bring you another mimosa. Support the dreams of talented local artists at Not My Day Job, the first and only annual variety show featuring members of the NYC restaurant industry who are working hard to pay their bills in order to one day pursue their real love.
This year marks the fourth annual talent, culinary and cocktail showcase for the arts on Sunday, October 27th from 1-5pm at the Prince George Ballroom. Join in on tastings and cocktails from Anfora, Brooklyn Star, Colicchio & Sons, Commerce, dell'anima, Evelyn's Kitchen, Gin Palace, Greenpoint Fish & Lobster, Harlow, Hecho en Dumbo, Marzano Bakeshop, Khe-Yo, L'Apicio, L'Artusi, Locanda Vini e Olii, Lugo Caffe, Maison Premiere, monument lane, Pat LaFrieda, Roberta's, Rouge Tomate, Shake Shack, The Wren and Willow Road.
Performances will include the Hot Sardines, DJ JAZZY NICE, coverage by Heritage Radio and more of your favorite talented hospitality performers.
Be sure to get your ticket for hours of entertainment, culinary and beverage delights and your chance to support the arts. This year, all proceeds from ticket sales and the live and silent auctions at the event will go to local arts organizations Fourth Arts Block (FABnyc) and Heritage Radio Network.
Hope to see you on Sunday to enjoy performances and some of NYC's best restaurant tastings xo
