This Saturday, March 16: Join Untapped Cities and No Longer Empty for an evening of food and entertainment celebrating the closing of “How Much Do I Owe You?”, a site-specific art installation housed in the abandoned Bank of Manhattan in Long Island City. No Longer Empty is a non-profit arts organization that sponsors public art exhibits in empty storefronts in New York City. The No Longer Empty Dinner is a chance for Untapped Readers to experience curated local cuisine and meaningful art in an extraordinary setting. Seating is limited to 30, and the dinner is almost sold out. Tickets available here.
The evening will kick off with cocktails in the Clock Tower, followed by a tour of the “How Much Do I Owe You?” exhibition. Next, guests will enjoy a five-course seated dinner by Chef Will Griffin. The night will conclude with a special performance by Korean artist Hayoon-Jay Lee.
The No Longer Empty Dinner is organized in collaboration by No Longer Empty, Untapped Cities and Local Roots NYC.

- Broccoli soup, cloth-bound cheddar
- Orecchiete, cuttlefish ink, egg, scallions
