in late March, we hosted an intimate pop-up dinner for some of our New York friends at Brooklyn FoodWorks—a career creation platform which exists to help educate + empower culinary start-ups by providing access to high-end kitchen space, mentors + other utilities. Without their aid, launching a new business in the bustling New York market seems to be a daunting task.
New York has no shortage of artists, which made choosing just one featured artist for our new Brooklyn location almost impossible. . . so we chose two! Complimenting the beautiful architectural design by our friend Jennifer Carpenter, sits a breathtaking mural by reknowned artist Rubin415, accompanying several photos from Joseph Michael Lopez (editor's note: blog coming soon!).

One of the breweries contributing to DC's evolution is Right Proper Brewing, a craft brewery with roots in the burgeoning Shaw + Brookland sections of the city.
Living Classrooms has been empowering Baltimore communities since the 80's—offering the city's youth (at risk, underprivileged or otherwise) the guidance, education + resources necessary to expand their horizons while furthering their ability to achieve their goals + dreams.
“It’s honeygrow!” exclaimed one of our young musicians as she caught a glimpse of the snack being prepared. These kids join the Musicopia String Orchestra for the music, but they certainly enjoy the snack break during weekly rehearsals. Musicopia String Orchestra program, founded by Musicopia in 2005, is based on the philosophy that participating in serious, long-term musical endeavors can have a transformative impact on students, encouraging discipline, tea
how do you transform your culinary idea into reality when space, capital + resources are difficult to come by in Washington, DC? That's where Union Kitchen's commissary, storage space + distribution efforts come into play. We met with Co-Founder, Cullen Gilchrist, to learn what the space offers + how a surge in cookie demand prompted the creation of one of DC's most valuable culinary assets.
