Midsummers Night’s Dreamis Secret Summer Party at the Foundry LIC

I recently attended the Secret Summer party at the historic Foundry in LIC, Queens NYC.   The lush outdoor courtyard space is beautiful, has a wonderful view, and is a perfect venue for an outdoor summer event.

IMG_6109The event was very popular and long lines had already formed when I arrived around 5pm for the food trucks serving grilled cheese from Morris Food Truck and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream (the Earl Grey tea flavor is one of my favorites) as well as the open-air “Grass­Fed Grill” with Chef V​aron Carillo.

Those who waited patiently in line were served freshly grilled steak, corn on the cob, asparagus, and grilled clams. IMG_6132

Inside the 12 event rooms of Foundry were the cocktails bars  and entertainment which included a skillful aerial silk acrobat and a trio of musicians.

Cocktails were beautiful to look at but a bit too strong for my taste.  Since I have a major sweet tooth my favorite were the fruity Swedish Rekorderlig Ciders.

It was a great time in a lovely space with gorgeous people (dressed up in Midsummers Night’s theme)!
