BUFFALO – Eating & drinking at a gorgeous restaurant with all of your friends for an amazing cause!? Yes, please!
Qween City will be partnering with the Gypsy Parlor this year for the 15th annual Dining out for Life, a citywide event benefiting the incredible Evergreen Health! Gypsy will be generously donating 25% from food sales and 10% from alcohol sales to fight AIDS and HIV in WNY during this one-night-only event in October.
On Tuesday, October 10, any time after 5 p.m. for a delicious meal and a few libations at the Gypsy Parlor, in addition to the chance to win sweet raffle prizes, sample a specialty Qween City cocktail, and listen to the grooves of a few of the city’s most talented up-and-coming DJs. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
Music provided by Bflo Lydia and Leesh.
Have dinner plans already? No problem! Come by after for a nightcap and hang with the girls of Qween City. At 9 p.m. the city’s brood of musicians will join in the festivities for their usual Tuesday open mic party. We will continue to roll with the good times until everyone leaves or they kick us out.
About Evergreen, Gypsy, and QC:
Evergreen Health has been on the front line, fighting HIV/AIDS while providing services to those living with the disease since 1983, and will continue to be there until AIDS is no more. Evergreen strives to foster healthy communities by providing medical, supportive and behavioral services to individuals and families in Western New York challenged by chronic or life threatening diseases.
Gypsy Parlor’s owner Gabrielle Mattina grew up on the West Side of Buffalo just a few blocks away from the Gypsy Parlor. After running restaurants and bars for other people it was time to open her own place. Gabrielle has always been in love with the old immigrant neighborhood. She combined this love for the neighborhood with her passion for mixing drinks and throwing parties. There hasn’t been a bar like this on Grant street in a long time, Gabrielle has fulfilled her dreams and has made her contribution to the resurgence of the West Side by opening Gypsy Parlor- an ecletic, eccentric neighborhood bar where everyone and anyone is welcome!
QweenCity.com is a lifestyle & culture webzine that highlights and celebrates the work and accomplishments of women in Buffalo, New York. We hope this project will grow indefinitely over time, bringing forth the greater picture of the lives of modern-day women in our city. We don’t yet know every single woman that makes this city tick. But we want to.
