How about a Friendsgiving in a non-traditional way? You got it! The outside of the box idea, known as the Spirit Rooftop Garden Benefit Dinner, takes place at Spirit on November 21st (7-10pm), which will bring a fun mind altering evening that promises to shake up the traditional Friendsgiving thing. The lights, music, drinks, and great food will make it a night to remember! And here’s how it’s going to happen!

The $85 ticket gets you a 4-course meal with your choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic pairings by Spirit’s chef, bartender and music friends, along with Ian Brill’s amazing light installation—Vault. 

Friendsgiving Spirit

The delicious food is prepared by Kendyl Ryan & Dan Rodriguez (Duncan Street), Dave Rath & John Thomas (Spirit), Piebird, and Sugar Spell Scoops. We are just getting started! You need some fabulous drinks for a special Friendsgiving, and you’ll get some really good pairings by Allegheny Wine Mixer, Spring Hill Brewing, Nicole Battle (Angel’s Envy Whiskey). With some tasty food and drinks you need awesome music to complete the mix. The music pairings are created by Jon David Russell, Pissy Mattress as Dawn Tawnya, Alex Korshin, and jb.arnes + OOTM. And just imagine all of the music with the incredible light installation. It’s going to blow your mind!

This is your chance to change up the traditional friendsgiving event with a fun new atmosphere. Get the friends together and get to Spirit! Who says you have to wait an extra week this year to enjoy Thanksgiving? The Friendsgiving dinner brings everything early! You’ve probably never experienced a light show surrounding you with all those music and drink and food combinations, mixed in with all the friend conversations about who knows what. Oh it’s going to be a fun time! 

Vegan and Vegetarian options will be available upon request. 100% of proceeds will benefit Spirit’s Rooftop Garden Project
