As part of the Our House Dinner Series, The Joinery hosted a dinner on September 25th in support of the non-profit organization Our House, which provides healthcare and housing to low-income individuals living with HIV. The Roman Feast hosted by Richard Bradspies & Dore Everett with Wendy Weaver and Chef Gabriel Gabreski of a Cena, was held in the middle of our wood shop. The fine dining setting among our walls of lumber and machinery presented a remarkable juxtaposition and a truly unique dining experience.

Guests were treated to an amazing feast of mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes, vegetable lasagna, and a whole roasted pig, paired with wine and a “Roman Holiday” specialty cocktail. The wine and cider was generously donated by Anne Hubatch of Helioterra wines and Alterego Cider. and the beautiful flower arrangements were donated by Hilary Spray of Joyful Floral.
