Fire & Knife presents “Pilar” – Inspired by the life and travels of Ernest Hemingway
Saturday March 22nd, 2014 at 6pm.
Ernest “Papa” Hemingway lived large. Very large. He left an indelible mark across the world. Everywhere he spent time writing, fishing, or merely living, his energy seeped into the culture of that place. It is difficult to travel without running into a “Hemingway Slept Here” or “Papa’s Favorite Bar Stool” sign hanging in a dark corner.
It is with that spirit of adventure and gusto that we introduce this one of a kind evening celebrating the places that those signs hang. From the babbling rivers and streams of our very own Northern Michigan, to the sultry, dangerous nights in the revolting streets of Spain. From a poor man’s seat at the moveable feast of Paris, to the rum soaked, salty air of the smoke filled bars of Havana.
The dress code is sharp but casual. No look alike contests or anything. You need not know a thing about the author to enjoy yourself, we promise. Expect a lot of seafood and fish (Pilar was the name of Papa’s fishing boat in Cuba) with a smattering of game and the like. Special diet requests are always welcome.
There will be two styles of ticket for this event. The “Table-for-Two” ticket will be a romantic atmosphere with individual table service. The “Single” ticket will get you a seat at a family style table with a more casual experience. Both style tickets include a spot at our “Happy Hour” service to start the evening.
Space is extremely limited. Parking is free and ample. Location will be in Downtown Grand Rapids and revealed to you 24 hours before the event via email.
