A hybrid winery, restaurant, and music venue that will arrive in Boston this summer has a springtime event planned to introduce itself to the city. City Winery will host a Passover Seder on April 2 — not at its future location at 1 Canal St. but at Laugh Boston in the Seaport District. (Next year, City Winery plans to host a Seder in its own space.) This year’s event will feature singers, songwriters, comedians (such as Eugene Mirman), artists, and writers, along with the food and stories associated with Seders.
City Winery’s founder, Michael Dorf, is the force behind the Seder, which will consist of a 90-minute program, a four-course vegetarian meal, and wine. Tables will be set up family-style, and all faiths are welcome. Boston’s Seder kicks off a series of dinners that will take place in New York, Chicago, and Atlanta, and each event will donate its proceeds to the Center for Constitutional Rights. There will be 250 tickets available for the Boston event.
Later this summer, City Winery will open at 1 Canal St. near TD Garden and Haymarket, as previously reported. The venue will occupy approximately 12,000 square feet on the first floor of the building, with five rooms inside and an outdoor courtyard during seasonal months, according to a City of Boston licensing board hearing agenda.
City Winery was founded in New York in 2008 and has locations in Nashville, Chicago, and Atlanta.
