My First Supper Club

The first supper club was a huge success! I had a blast! Our inspiration came from the Harlem Renaissance, and the rent parties that took place. They would throw parties and invite jazz players, and charge a cover at the door as a way to make rent money. In addition to that we also spent a year and a half in Harlem. I can't even tell you how many places we tried for good soul food. You can check out my previous post on the yummy places we found! It went off amazing, and the hosts were gracious. We ended up with 12 people. I love this type of event because people come together that don't know each other and leave as new friends! Myself included! It was a great success and I could't have had a better partner at my side, my husband Tom who was a fantastic sous chef and server! I love him and couldn't have done it without him!
