This program has been postponed to the rain date of Saturday, May 28th, from Friday, May 27th, due to expected inclement weather.

All tickets will be honored for the Saturday rain date. Our main concern is ensuring everyone’s safety and enjoyment.

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.
