The JBF Greens Launch Party

In case you missed the news, we’ve launched a new membership category for all of the young food lovers out there. If you’re under 40 and fancy yourself some fine food and drink, then a JBF Greens membership has your name on it.  

 

Last week we officially inaugurated the JBF Greens at a launch party at Bar 75 at the Andaz Wall Street hotel. Attended by nearly 100 freshly minted Greens members and other special guests, this kick-off event featured savory and sweet bites by Andaz chef Victor Cruz, as well as charcuterie, local cheeses, and freshly shucked oysters. Guests also enjoyed Punzoné Vodka and Arvero Limoncello cocktails, Stella Artois beers, Vias Imports wines, and music courtesy of El Media Group. A selection of photos from the party are below.

 

For our next JBF Greens event, we’re teaming up with Jazz at Lincoln Center’s own under-40 group, Hang Set, for a spectacular evening of delicious food, stunning views, and great music. Get more details and purchase tickets... Read more >
