3 courses + 2 shows

Our Menu:

1st Course
Lamb Sausage Ragu on Crostini with Mint Pesto by Neuf’s Malik Ali

Rose Luardo & Andrew Jeffrey Wright serves up
THE NEW DREAMZ

Their performance piece, POWER MIND SELF HORIZON WORKSHOP CLASS FORUM, explores life’s gamut with costume, improv dance and absurdist comedy. It is a mismatch of aesthetics and dialogues between themselves and the audience. Here’s what you will see: the trials of making regular life less regular, dance bologna, inner worlds of discovery and deep clown.

2nd Course
Mystery English Pie (TBA) by Stargazy’s proprietor Sam Jacobson
while
Edward Snyder as Chris Davis as Marcus Livengood serve up

VIOLENCE OF THE LAMBS

The next great threat to civilization is not nuclear war or disease, it’s animals. ANIMALS. Lambs, dogs, cats, geese… They’re organizing, and planning viscious attack.

34 years of documented research will prove the next great war will be…an Animal vs. Human War.

3rd Course
Animal Cracker Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Chef Ali’s alter ego : Cakeman

Stick around! Neuf’s bar will stay open until you feel safe enough to go home ;)

$40

Chris Davis – Chinchilla Coats

Recently returned from Edinburgh Fringe. Covering such topics as the true cost of a chinchilla coat to depression, dysfunctional relationships, spooning with pillows and day-drinking alone, Chris Davis illuminates the turmoil of life with dry observation and dark metaphors that are sure to make you laugh while secretly crying inside. (‘A strikingly original writer and performer.’ (Scotsman).
