Our Place- 2018 event

For the sixth consecutive year, preparations are under way for Our Place’s annual Ultimate Guys Night Out at the Stahler estate in the Lawrence neighborhood of Sutton Park. As always, the event is highlighted by an innovative foodie experience, presented by Riverside Abstract. Back by popular demand, this year, “The Smokehouse Quartet” of Izzy’s Smokehouse (Crown Heights), Graze Smokehouse (Cedarhurst), 306 BBQ (Monsey), and Judd’s Memphis Kitchen (Cedarhurst) will be returning for the second consecutive year to present a diverse array of scrumptious smoked meats and barbecue. “We generally like to mix things up,” explained Rabbi Aryeh Young, executive director of Our Place, “but the feedback on last year’s menu was simply so unparalleled, we figured it would be best to just run it another year without making any major menu changes.”

The event will also feature a gourmet sushi bar from Eden Wok of New Rochelle, hand-rolled cigars, live music, an open bar, and, of course, the annual Our Place Backyard Volleyball Tournament.

While over 100 players compete in the annual volleyball tournament, an additional 250+ men from throughout the Five Towns and surrounding neighborhoods will join together to watch, eat, drink, and show their support for Our Place’s efforts in assisting at-risk teens and young adults in the community.

Often described as the “ultimate chill,” the Ultimate Guys Night Out & Foodie Experience has become the most anticipated event of the summer—unparalleled food, a perfect ambiance, and competitive sports all wrapped into one incredible evening.

With active committee members from Lawrence, Woodmere, Cedarhurst, North Woodmere, and Far Rockaway all working to ensure this year’s success, Our Place is excitedly preparing for its biggest turnout ever. “Every year we try to spice up the event a bit; this year, we will be adding live music and also raffling off the chance to drive a Ferrari California T. It’s going to be a truly phenomenal event,” added Rabbi Young.

Doors open at 6:30 prompt this Tuesday, July 9, and valet parking will be provided for all guests. All men from the community are encouraged to join for a truly awesome evening of food, fun, and, most importantly, much-needed tzedakah. In addition to the Foodie Sponsor, Riverside Abstract, the Platinum Sponsor for the event is Maidenbaum Tax Preparers, and Gold Sponsors include American Dream, Black Rock Title, and MYDA Advisors. Other sponsors include The Premier, Gourmet Glatt, Quicksilver Capital, Rosebern Realty Group, Wisnicki & Associates, Kensington Vanguard, Juniper Capital, Eden Wok of New Rochelle, and Carmel Winery.
