Signature Event | 21+ Only


The Cedar Room



Get ready to ignite your senses. Storytellers gather as you sip and snack your way though an evening that can be summed up in one word… BURNED.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what about the reverse? Can one word evoke a thousand images? Join us as we hear a well-rounded cast tell their stories. Its purpose is to bring audiences on a journey that connects, inspires and evokes a ‘sense of place’.

Each speaker will take the stage and provide the audience with rapid injections of inspiration through visuals + storytelling associated with this one word. The interpretations are endless and we can promise the stories will be ones you don’t want to miss.

• Amy Mills of the award-winning 17th Street BBQ talks about the powerful combination of wood, smoke and family.

• Ed Currie, the grower of The Carolina Reaper, talks about finding his way to the world’s hottest pepper and its impact on lives.

• Anita Singleton-Prather, revered Lowcountry Gullah Storyteller, tells the story of Light.

• The talented team from The Obstinate Daughter demonstrate and serve a smoked cocktail with a twist and a dream.

• Healer Elli Richter serves up how raw cacao is a powerful heart opener that paves the way to transformation

• Russ & Daughters, the torchbearers of Jewish food in America, now run by the fourth-generation of the family, take us through the journey of the growth of an institution hailed by the Smithsonian Institute, and the National Register of Historic Places.

• And several other surprises to delight the senses!
