Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess join us for an evening of Jewish music about food and sex. And yes, a Jewish inspired menu will be presented. More details, soon.

Menu will will be improvised using the following themes as starting points
1 Borscht
Beet Soup with Horseradish dill cashew cream garnished with beet chips.
2 Mezze plate
falafel, homemade pita, roasted garlic hummous, beet nut pate, homemade pickles
3 Cabbage leaves stuffed with bean balls, baked in tomato pomegranate sauce. Kascha Varnischkes. Roasted Brussel Sprouts, root vegegable knishes with beer mustard.
4 Dessert
rugelach and ice creams (cashew based)



Tonight, Charming Hostess will be singing Sephardi women's music, Andaluzi piyutim, and Marian hymns. We are looking at expressions of abundance in these forms--sometimes food, sometimes drink, sometimes spirit. This intimate iteration of ChoHo is Jewlia Eisenberg and Cynthia Taylor, mostly a cappella. Show some love to the radical women in your life, this is a great date!

Charming Hostess makes music at the intersection of voice, text and diaspora consciousness. You can buy their music (do you still buy music? YAY!)  on the Tzadik label's Radical Jewish Culture imprint. Recordings include The Bowls Project on Babylonian amulets and Trilectic on the political-erotic world of Walter Benjamin. Their work has been curated into the Contemporary Jewish Museum in SF and the Museum of Peace in Uzbekistan; they perform regularly in Europe and the Americas, they have been visiting artists at MIT, CalArts and UColorado. They are currently at work on Queer Piyut, on gender diverse expression Jewish devotional music, and The Ginzburg Geography, a cartographic performance installation based on the lives of Natalia and Leone Ginzburg. The New Yorker describes Jewlia's music as "hilarious and touching, sweet and soulful."  The Wire says we show a "dazzling display of vocal agility, wit, emotional flexibility, and imaginative depth."

  1. Hi,

    I am very happy to see your blog, very good article.

    we offer our services to a variety of high-end clients and social affairs, including weddings, cocktail receptions,
    gala dinners, black tie events and cosy family get together.

    How can we use catering food closer to customers rather than making them more remote?

    Dubai has always been a happening place for socializing and what better than then by ordering food from Epicure catering from the comfort of home .

    Private catering is something that we specialize in mo event is too small for us .Our team come to you with the food.
