The Drink: Mombucha
Mombucha is Rich Awn’s artisanal kombucha (a rich fermented tea brew that dates back to the Qin Dynasty) brewed, bottled and labeled by hand at “Magick City,” his commercial brewery located in Greenpoint and site of this Nightcap Riot.
As part of the evening’s festivities, Rich will offer a tour of his brewery, tastings of various Mombucha varietals (including Black Vanilla, Gingermint and Orange Blood) and even teach Nightcap Rioters how to brew their own kombucha.
Nightcap Riot will feature Mombucha-focused cocktails throughout the evening at a unique bar curated by Rich and special VIP guests from NYC’s culinary scene. All attendees of Nightcap Riot will also receive a 10 oz Mombucha bottle and a Kombucha starter kit to take home at the conclusion of the festivities.
The Play: "Destiny and The Little Man"
“Destiny and the Little Man” is Jim Knable’s ferocious and hilarious battle of wits between a 26-year-old Napoleon Bonaparte and a mysterious lady who may or may not be a ruthless Viennese spy. Nightcap Riot is thrilled to present Knable’s world premiere adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s “The Man of Destiny”, an Equity Approved Showcase, directed by Bruce Levitt.
