The date has been set.
The Underground Kitchen, a pop-up dining event company based in Virginia, will hold its first event in Columbia April 5, at a location that will be known only to ticket holders.
The mystery is part of the appeal of The Underground Kitchen events. The only thing known when purchasing an event ticket is the dinner’s theme, price, date and time. Details such as the menu, chef and location are released 24-48 hours before the event.
Tickets for the Columbia dinner are $150 per person (includes food, wine and gratuity) and go on sale Wednesday. To purchase tickets, you must subscribe to UGK’s website: theundergroundkitchen.org.
The dinner theme is “Buds & Blossoms,” a celebration of spring using fresh local vegetables, flowers and decor, according to Underground Kitchen program director Zachary McElgunn. Expect a five- to seven-course dinner with limited seating (usually 40 guests); tickets are first-come, first-served and limited to two per subscriber.
The Underground Kitchen plans to have six to 12 events in cities throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina over the course of the year.
