Great Food for a Great Cause

We are so excited to partner up with Whole Foods Market, Yorkville, for this delicious event! Featuring an innovative dining experience with Chef Rudy (Lamesa Filipino Kitchen), and Chef Basilio (Porzia) with menus inspired by some of their best memories of food.
Make new memories eating and eating up some art! Twist Gallery’s walls are going to be filled with art created by the young women and men of KAPISANAN’s flagship arts mentorship and cultural immersion programmes, CLUTCH Vol. 6, and the pilot year of NAVIGATION.
There will be live musical entertainment by CLUTCH Vol. 4 graduate, Victoria Marie and The Quan. They will be bringing you back with 1960s Filipino pop classics to get you feeling nostalgic (even if you weren’t born yet).
Thursday | August 7th | Doors Open @ 5:30pm
There will be art, music, food stations, and an open bar.
ALL proceeds will benefit KAPISANAN’s on-going youth programs.

Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy directed and produced by William Wyler. It stars Gregory Peck as a reporter and Audrey Hepburn as a royal princess out to see Rome on her own. Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also won.
It was written by John Dighton and Dalton Trumbo, though with Trumbo on theHollywood blacklist, he did not receive a credit; instead, Ian McLellan Hunterfronted for him. Trumbo’s credit was reinstated when the film was released on DVDin 2003. On December 19, 2011, full credit for Trumbo’s work was restored. Blacklisted director Bernard Vorhaus worked on the film as an assistant director under a pseudonym.
In the 1970s, both Peck and Hepburn were approached with the idea of a sequel, but the project never came to fruition.
The film was remade for television in 1987 with Tom Conti and Catherine Oxenberg, who is herself a member of a European royal family. In 2012, a musical version of Roman Holiday, following the plot while using the songs of Cole Porter, was presented in Minneapolis at the Guthrie Theater. The cast included Stephanie Rothenberg as Princess Ann and Edward Watts as Joe Bradley.
Happy Pride Parade Day folks. I know most of you are hanging out in the east end today for the parade festivities, but those of you who are holding back in the west can still get your food and drink on here at the restaurant at DOPO. Today we have Manny Veneracion from Bent restaurant on the bar slinging $10 cocktails with our $10 snack menu. AND…… to make Sunday even better…… we’re running our $10 cocktail special all day. Tomorrow looks pretty booked for reservations, (with room for walk ins) so if you want to get your fill of some Porzia goodness, come out today and hang our with us. We’d love to see you before we go away.
