Wild Nights! Wild Nights! A Dionysian Evening of Food, Wine, and Poetry
Poets: Anne Carson, Eileen Myles, Kevin Young
February 10, 2014, 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
North End Grill, 104 North End Avenue, New York, NY

Prepare to be tantalized just in time for Valentine’s Day at Wild Nights! Wild Nights!, an ecstatic event featuring an elegant, intimate three-course dinner by renowned chef Floyd Cardoz (a Top Chef Masters winner) at Danny Meyer’s award-winning North End Grill, with fine wine pairings by esteemed wine importer Neal Rosenthal. Sappho translator Anne Carson is joined by her partner Robert Currie for an amorous literary exchange, and poets Eileen Myles and Kevin Young intoxicate with poems celebrating all things Eros.

The Dionysian feast begins at 6:00pm with champagne toasts at Poets House at 10 River Terrace (at Murray Street), then moves to the North End Grill at 104 North End Avenue at 7:00pm for dinner and poetic delights.

Wild Nights! Wild Nights! is a benefit for Poets House and all proceeds support its programs and services, most of which are free to the public. For more information, contact Krista Manrique at or 212-431-7920, ext. 2830.
