Friday at 6:00pm – Saturday at 2:00am
Listen to the soft rustle of the bronze colored leaves. See the morning mist float over the river at daybreak. Yes, its time to harvest the holubtsi. (Holubtsi is the Ukrainian name for stuffed cabbage rolls)
On Friday, November 18, come to the Ukrainian Social Club for an event celebrating old world charm and the dreamy golden days of autumn: Holubtsi Harvest. Try holubtsi, an essential dish of traditional Ukrainian cookery. Resident chef, Mrs. H will have the windows of Buffalo’s oldest Ukrainian social club steamed up from 5:30 to 11 pm, serving handmade holubtsi dinners, along with other Ukrainian food like pierogi with carmelized onions and peppery traditional borscht. DJ Ihor will compliment the evening with obscure No Wave and indie rock created during the days of glasnost.
Lounge around at the club’s chic full-service bar, which features an array of heady Ukrainian beers by Obolon, along with European and American beer and liquor. As if that wasn’t enough, enjoy an exhibition of paintings inspired by Ukrainian heritage, by Lila Krehbiel.
