Please join us at the "Alembique Apothecary" for a festive Persian New Year celebration, featuring music, dance and deliciousness, a spring-time banquet of home-made Persian treats and teas, amity and hope. We will treat you to Caspian delights, sherbets and teas, as traditional dancers bedazzle your eyes and ears to welcome spring. Norouz or "New Day" is celebrated in dozens of countries by hundreds of millions, its Zoroastrian origins evoking even more ancient beginnings. Come gather around a gorgeous Haft-sin table, featuring seven ancient symbols of hope, resilience, and rebirth. 20% of proceeds donated to local immigrant and refugee rights organizations.
