Orange 2016 will give New Yorkers a chance to experience some of the best brunch restaurants from around the city at an energetic and unique orange-tie event all while benefiting charity.
Event attendees will enjoy live music, brunch stations by seven NYC brunch restaurants, an oyster bar, signature cocktails by EFFEN Vodka, Valdo Prosecco, Herradura Tequila, Aperol, Woodford Reserve and specialty juice company RIPE Bar Juice, beer by Brooklyn Brewery, and non-alcoholic beverages by Bruce Cost Ginger Ale and coffee by Four J Foods.
This year’s event will continue the tradition that was started in 2012, and 100% of the profits will be donated to TEAM FOX for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. And because the Michael J. Fox Foundation has an orange logo, all attendees are required to wear at least one piece of orange clothing, making it truly an orange-tie event.
“We find that people really get into the theme and are creative,” said BrunchCritic Founder Andrea Pappas. “People wear everything from orange scarfs and bow-ties, to dresses, to a pair of silly orange pants,” she added.
“It’s especially an honor this year to welcome cast members from the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black,” said Pappas.” The support this year has flowed from so many different areas and I’m humbled,” said Pappas.
BrunchCritic’s fashion partner for the event is Rent The Runway, who will offer all new customers 20% off, and the official transportation partner is ride-sharing service Lyft, who will offer 50% off rides to and from the venue. Guest will also be able to enter a raffle and win a trip to Napa, California presented by Eleven Eleven Winery and Jet Blue.
BrunchCritic, New York’s All Brunch Resource, was founded in March 2011 to address the growing brunch trend in New York. The company realized a need was not being met in the online space to provide quick, accessible and comprehensive information on brunching throughout the City. In addition to proving brunch information and restaurant reviews online, BrunchCritic hosts signature brunch events for its community. BrunchCritic is committed to providing unique, memorable & audience engaging experiences. The company has plans to expand to other major urban cities in 2016.
