Downtown Seder 2014

City Winery, 155 Varick Street, Manhattan

Whether you’re preparing for this year’s Passover, or just curious about the tradition, the City Winery is here to revere and inspire. According to the winery’s founder Michael Dorf, “The focus of this tradition involves re-experiencing the bitterness and despair of oppression, and appreciating the liberation and freedoms we now enjoy. The Seder is our annual reminder to ask questions, to challenge the status quo, and with serious discussion, humor, music, food and wine, address the critical issues facing humanity today.” Tickets are $105 per person.

Enlightenment Dinner

The Farm on Adderley, 1108 Cortelyou Road, Brooklyn

We feel enlightened after pretty much any meal at The Farm on Adderley, Brooklyn’s star player in the farm-to-table game. But now that they’re throwing “potions and concoctions” into the mix at this special dinner, we’re feelin’ even further from the Dark Ages. Enlightenment Wines and Caledonia Spirits are teaming up with the restaurant for a delicious meal and a lesson in making some highfalutin’ adult beverages. Dinner is $79 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

An Anchorman Film Feast

Nitehawk Cinema, 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn

We love scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch — and scotch eggs, too. Kick off a whole meal with these tasty morsels in celebration of the Legend of Ron Burgundy. Nitehawk Cinema and Green Flash Brewing Company’s Film Feast present Anchorman with four movie-themed courses and the brews to match. Think: a Perrito Caliente Burrito that’s “so filling” along with a West Coast IPA. That’s classy, San Diego. Admission to dinner and the screening is $75 per person.
