There’s a Thai-Jewish Party Happening Tonight at Abe Fisher

It’s for a good cause, too.

Abe Fisher’s general manager and beverage director Brian Kane just hired a new bartender in Drew Pompa. Pompa comes to Philly from Detroit, where he manned the bar at a southeast Asian restaurant called Katoi, a restaurant which recently burned to the ground two days after receiving its first James Beard semifinalist nomination.

So Pompa, and Kane (who’s visited many a time), want to help the Katoi crew out by throwing a party.

Tonight, March 6th, from 10 p.m. to midnight, Abe Fisher will be throwing a benefit for Katoi featuring Thai/Jewish snacks like gribenes lettuce wraps and corned pork belly summer rolls, plus Detroit-themed cocktails (like the “Motor City Sling”, a fruity riff on the Singapore sling). Pompa himself will be DJing through the night. Additionally, Kane was able to secure a whole lot of beverage sponsors, plus 10 gift cards to raffle off from local restaurants (Vernick, Res Ipsa, and Townsend among them).

Tickets are just $20 online, and $25 at the door.
