There are a lot of reasons we’re excited about The Big Gay Brunch (hosted by Big Gay Ice Cream, Next Magazine and Underground Eats), which will kick off NYC Gay Pride Week (and summer) in style. On June 22nd, at the outdoor pool at the new Mercedes Club in Manhattan, some great culinary names will descend to create a Sunday afternoon brunch pool party that benefits The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to the LGBT community.

Chefs include Dave Martin (Top Chef Season One), Zac Young (Top Chef: Just Desserts, Pastry Chef at David Burke Kitchen), Elizabeth Falkner (contestant on The Next Iron Chef and Top Chef Masters) and the guys from the  (who are also hosting the event with Underground Eats).

There’s going to be a synchronized swimming contest (you heard that right!), bocce courts, a putting green, poolside cabanas and much more! Brunch is unlimited, alcohol is sponsored by ABSOLUT (unlimited Bloody Mary Bar!) and Blue Moon.

Support a great cause, live up summer in the city, and join us at The Big Gay Brunch. Untapped is offering two levels of tickets, VIP at $150 which includes a free ride with access to the VIP area, Uber’s luxury service and premium ABSOLUTE Tune beverage service. General Admission is $90.
