Pop Up Shabbat

I attended a previous Breaking Breads pop up earlier this year, and when I saw they were going to throw a Pop Up Shabbat, I was quick to sign up. The dinner was hosted by Martha Holmberg (current CEO of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, award winning cook book author including the co-author of the best-selling cookbook Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables with Joshua McFadden) and Kristin Spear (founder of FaithHaus) with special guest Devra Ferst (a New York City based food writer and editor who has written for Bon Appetit, Vogue, NPR, Conde Nast, and more). Dinner proceeds of the Pop Up Shabbat, and in lieu of gratuity envelopes were provided, that benefit Sack Lunch PDX, a Portland team of Chefs Cycle, a nationwide fundraiser for the No Kid Hungry campaign.

Have you heard of Shabbat? Shabbat is an observance in the Jewish culture that occurs every Friday night which brings family and friends together to celebrate Sabbath, the seventh day of rest that lasts from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday. Shabbat dinner on Friday night is in many ways similar to a family’s traditional Sunday Supper – but imagine that this is celebrated as a cornerstone of Jewish culture, almost like celebrating a mini-Thanksgiving but more focus on giving thanks and enjoying friends and family then a belly busting meal).

Shipwreck PDX at Taqueria Nueve

Last month in May, Shipwreck PDX popped up at Taqueria Nueve.

In the meantime, here’s a few photos from the last Shipwreck PDX at Taqueria Nueve pop up to show their larger menu of drinks and eats. You can also see photos from their first pop-up here.

Shipwreck PDX

I was able to attend Shipwreck PDX at their first pop up in March at Jacqueline, and they made my Eater PDX top pop up list. I plan to attend again at their next pop up in May 15 next from 5 PM to 2 AM at Taqueria Nueve, which is now additionally partnering with Rum Club while waiting for your table. It’s a strong sign how they are continually improving and actively making choices by learning from their experience in March.
