Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano: Brunch Is Hell

Event Navigation


From the organizers:

In a world of deepening divisions and painful fractures, the last thing we need is to be spending hours waiting in line for overpriced eggs just to share a meal with our friends. Public radio hosts Brandan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano share their secret to a social revolution: dinner parties. Loaded with wit, celebrity advice, and tongue-in-cheek humor–plus sincere insights about how humans can be more generous to each other, Brunch Is Hell is a spirited guide to restoring the art of throwing a dinner party.

Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano are the creators, hosts, and producers of The Dinner Party Download, a public radio show and podcast about culture and food named the “Best Food Podcast” from the Academy of Podcasters. They were named two of Food & Wine’s “Forty Big Food Thinkers Forty and Under,” and have appeared as judges on Top Chef Masters. They each write food, design, and travel articles for national print outlets.

Admission is free!
