Support Hurricane Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico w/ City Winery

Puerto Rico_rotator

On January 29, City Winery’s sending 125 of our management to Puerto Rico, spending two days in the middle of the island, where we’ll work with farmers to rebuild their property. This includes planting seeds, removing debris, and rebuilding barns, sheds, and farms. Hurricane Maria took a horrific toll and decimated the agricultural industry, which normally acts as the main food supplier for the island.

Chef Cuevas of Restaurant 1919 and the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel acts as the leader in the farm to table movement in Puerto Rico and is collaborating with City Winery to help those in need.

The City Winery employees will be making the trip with duffle bags filled with supplies. Thanks to American Airlines, who will be waiving the excess baggage fees, the company will be able to bring necessities including ground coffee, shovels, extension cords, dehydrated milk, and much more.

To supplement the rebuilding efforts, City Winery will be leveraging its extensive customer-facing business with a campaign to help raise additional funds, allowing the company to bring much needed cash down for distribution directly to the farming and food-creating community.

With over 300,000 email subscribers and a strong social media presence, the 125 managers participating – separately from the campaign – are striving to raise over $250,000 between now and their departure.

Would you be willing to help support by donating product or funds
? We are looking for partners that can offer supplies, cash, and support in our efforts to continue to rebuild Puerto Rico. In return, we will make sure your brand is mentioned on all materials sent to the media and we will have photographer (Getty) documenting the entire effort and you are welcome to use those as you wish. Our PR team can also connect and collaborate with you directly as they will be doing appropriate outreach.

We’re doing boots on the ground efforts to help those affected, and together we’ll make a real difference, please join us by donating at http://www.citywinery.com/puertorico or emailing us at puertorico@citywinery.com

Shawn Colvin’s Fall Residency @ City Winery

We recently sat down with Shawn Colvin, a Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter who has a Fall residency here at City Winery. In 2012 the Folk singer released an album All Falls Down along with her memoir, Diamond in the Rough. Take a look at what the artist had to say about the writing process and her favorite parts about City Winery.

CW: What’s your favorite food at City Winery NYC?

SC: No question about it, crispy brussel sprouts.

CW: When it comes to songwriting, what’s the biggest difference between writing now and writing when you first started?

SC: I trusted myself less, I had less confidence when i first started I had to edit a lot and I thought things through maybe too much. I’m a little more intuitive now.

CW: You recently released the a book, Diamond in the Rough. What was the biggest difference between writing a book and writing an album?

SC: There’s a vast difference, I found out. Writing a song you’re kind of limited to 3 – 5 minutes, things have to rhyme, you need to scan the lyrics over the melody in the right way. All of those things limit you in a way. So you’re edited so you have to fit them in in a puzzle, like a sort of jigsaw puzzle. Whereas writing a book it’s like your butt is hanging out in the wind. Where do you start? Especially when you’re writing about yourself. There’s no poetry in it, it’s just you talking. Which is the secret. To capture what you actually sound like talking, instead of trying to be clever or fancy. Doesn’t work for me.

CW: On your latest album you collaborated with many different artists. What’s the best part about collaborating for you?

SC: Favorite part is just that, having someone offer an idea that you didn’t think of. You don’t always necessarily take it literally as their idea. I co wrote a song with Jakob Dylan and he set the song in the Civil War, and I kept a lot of lyrically what he wrote. But I kind of transformed it into a sad love song, took out the circa 1865 thing. What he gave me was invaluable. It’s the satisfaction in coming up with something together, and being proud along with someone else.

CW: What’s your favorite part about performing at City Winery NYC?

SC: I guess the audience. It’s a great room and I love the sound. But the audiences are respectful and enthusiastic. Even though they’re drinking and they’re eating you don’t notice it. And everyone who works here is divine. It’s a great experience!

Sinead O’Connor Sells Out 3 Nights at City Winery!

Controversial Irish rocker Sinead O’Connor packed the house to the rafters this past weekend; she sold City Winery completely out on November 8th, 9th & 10th, and left the audience screaming for more.

Sinead, known earlier in her career for voicing her strong and deeply-rooted political and religious opinions, has in recent times, been just as outspoken on issues she deems important, including feminism and women’s issues.

Performing classics, more obscure tracks and more recent material, the artist had also recently performed at City Winery’s Chicago location to a packed house!
