You may request a full refund of your ticket price minus the paypal processing fee any time up to 48 hours before the event by emailing [email protected].

Event Details


Venue: We have booked a secret location in the Bushwick, Brooklyn neighborhood, just off the Morgan L stop and walking distance from the Flushing Avenue J,M train. Once you reserve your ticket we will send you an email within 24 hours with the exact address and directions. If you do not receive an email please contact us at [email protected]. The location is within a building with residences so please be mindful of noise and respect both the venue and the building.

Time: We will open doors at 8pm and dinner will begin at 8:30. Please arrive promptly between these times. Due to the relatively late start we will begin food service promptly at 8:30. Musical entertainment will begin around 9:30 and coffee ceremony will start at 10. The event should be completed by 11pm.

Food Service: Ethiopian dining is communal. Guests sit together and share large platters that accommodate up to four people. Also the food is eaten with your hands, using Injera as your utensil. We maintain very high standards for hygeine. Hot towels will be provided before dining to clean your hands. Additionally, a wash basin will be available and of course we will accommodate any request for napkins and extra sanitation items. We will ask you to share a plate with other guests. Side plates will be provided for injera and anything else you want to sequester.

Dietary Needs: The food is 100% vegan. The only item that is not technically vegan is the Tej, which is made from honey. The injera contains a small amount of gluten, but if you have an allergy please notify us one week in advance and we will arrange for gluten-free injera to be provided to you. If you have ANY other food allergies please let us know before the event and we will do our best to accommodate you.

That is about it. Just come prepared to have fun! We look forward to meeting you.
