There are few things New Yorkers love more than a quality brunch experience where the weather is (still) gorgeous, the drinks are flowing, and the food is phenomenal. The New York Urban League’s recent Black and White Champagne Brunch brought home way more than just bubbles and a great time. The organization’s third annual event was also an excellent opportunity to meet and break bread with some of the city’s most progressive and visionary African Americans.
Held at the stunningly beautiful waterfront restaurant La Marina, the event honored Camille Joseph Goldman, vice president of State Government Affairs at Charter Communications. Event leadership included New York Urban League Board Chair Jeanine Conley and John Daves; Elsie McCabe Thompson and NYUL Board member Bill Thompson; and the afternoon’s honoree, Ms. Goldman and Jason Goldman.
First things first, let me get the most important question out of the way: The food was outstanding! Delectable fried chicken sandwiches and fresh fruit skewers paired with overflowing bubbly is exactly how you kick off a Saturday on the waterfront. I barely touched the buffet afterward, I was having such a blast!
