Rain date: Saturday, May 28th

The Long Story

With this long-awaited follow-up to 2019’s legendary Burgers, Bourbon, & Beethoven, we now shift our insatiable search for culinary transcendence to the hot dog, whose humble origins began with Charles Feltman, a Green-Wood permanent resident who invented the fabled frankfurter sandwich back in 1867 in Coney Island.

Price: $65. No member discount available.

We’ll celebrate Feltman’s legacy with a smorgasbord of different styles of dogs from some of NYC’s finest purveyors, a wide swath of spirits to taste, snacks a-plenty, sunset swing jazz, and more Handel than you can shake a footlong at—played by a crack team of local baroque specialists.

The Short Story

Be sure to mentally, physically, and spiritually prepare yourself for this one, ‘cause we’re not sure you can *handel* the near-limitless glory that’s coming your way.

Presented in partnership with Death of Classical as part of the Angel’s Share series. 

$65. No member discount available. Ticket price includes spirits and snacks, with hot dogs available for purchase from various local vendors.
