Ideas for small work event (wine tasting, chocolate making, etc)
I am planning a work event for 5 people in early December, and we're looking to do something more fun than the traditional dinner. The budget is around $100/person.
A few of my current ideas:
- A wine tasting/food pairing at the Monday Room
- Chocolate making at La Maison du Chocolat
Any other suggestions? Beer tasting? Cooking classes? Cigar places?
My office did an outing to The Plant in DUMBO for a raw food "cooking" class. None of us are raw foodists, but it was still really fun, and the food was surprisingly good (very heavy on the coconut though). Definitely something different.
Beer Table, in Park Slope, can cater corporate events like this, with different kinds of beer tastings, educational programs, etc. Take a look at http://www.beertable.com/beerkitchen/
I've never had their catering, but their bottled beers are unlike anything most people have ever tasted, and the staff are as nice and knowledgeable as can be. I'd certainly recommend looking into it, as it's a bit more unexpected than the average wine tasting.
