My friend Gail Simmons (the beautiful judge from Top Chef), sent me this announcement for a brisket competition she’s judging this Sunday in New York. Finally, a $100 a plate Jewish fundraiser and the food will actually be worth the money. If you’re in New York and want to support a cool shul, I suggest you pony up and put your brisket eating pants on.
A Beefy Banquet to Benefit The New Shul
Sunday, April 22nd.
Who makes the best brisket?
Your Aunt Gussie?
