Bronx Academy of Letters 10th Anniversary | Events

The Urban Assembly Bronx Academy of Letters is having a fabulous benefit with a ridiculous amount of ridiculously good food– helloooo Prune, momofuku, Mission Chinese, etc. Anthony Bourdain is hosting and it’s kind of impossible to get into half of these places, so… see you there?

The benefit is being held at the Metropolitan Pavilion (110 W 19th Street between 5th and 6th) on Tuesday, April 30th from 6:30-9:30pm. Tickets are available online and start at $250, $150 of which is tax deductible.

Next up in insanely cool news: Sometime during the event when I’m not eating everything, I’ll be exchanging a few words with Anthony Bourdain. If you have a great original question let me know in the comments and I’ll see if I can fit it in! 

The Bronx Academy of Letters is founded on the belief that students who can express themselves clearly in writing can do better in any path they choose in life. Students achieve mastery of the word in the context of a rigorous, college-preparatory environment that celebrates vision, expression, tenacity, inquiry, integrity, and compassion.

    OMG. I am in awe. I adore him. And his attitude. He is one of the few people I know I would be scared to talk to. I would prepare by drinking a shot!! OR TWO. Can’t wait to hear more.

      How did you know? That’s exactly my plan! I just have to decide if it will be bourbon or vodka… I’m actually afraid I’ll end up having a panic attack pre-interview.

      Also, when did I turn into a food blogger? Ha!
