We have a very special performer for this evening; a brilliant storyteller and hilarious comedian Dhaya Lakshminarayanan to go with a menu based on cherries. We have a communal table for 12 and a chefs table for 2 for this event. If you would like to reserve the chef table, please contact me. Sadly the original plan for this to be the first of the annual peach menus with the Masumoto Family farm is unable to happen due to a later harvest and delivery time for the first heirloom of the season. Dhaya’s first stand up comedy album DHAYATRIBE debuted #2 on iTunes this year. She received the Liz Carpenter Political Humor Award (previously awarded to Samantha Bee and Wanda Sykes) for her stand-up. Comedy Central Asia crowned her the Grand Prize Winner of “The Ultimate Comedy Challenge”. As a television host, Dhaya helmed the inaugural season of the Emmy award-winning series High School Quiz Show on PBS’s WGBH. She is a frequent comedic storyteller on NPR’s Snap Judgment. She currently serves as the host of San Francisco’s monthly Moth. Buy her album or join her mailing list or follow her on Twitter @dhayalive
