A Story to Tell: An Ode to Hip Hop
A Story to Tell: An Ode to Hip Hop
Nov 11, 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Baltimore, Maryland


The first of its kind in Baltimore, H3irloom Food Group's curated pop-up dining experiences are some of the most highly-sought after events in the city. These exclusive, ticketed experiences bring sustainably sourced, farm-to-table cuisine to the forefront, with themed menus carefully composed by James Beard Foundation Alumni and Executive Chefs David and Tonya Thomas. This year marks the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and we couldn't let this year go by without celebrating it by bringing back our highly touted A Story to Tell: An Ode to Hip-Hop.


Nodding to the rich history and undeniable influence on the mainstream culture that hip-hop has, A Story to Tell: An Ode to Hip-Hop takes guests on a unique journey of the love affair between hip-hop and food. Executive Chefs David & Tonya Thomas delve into the basic elements of hip-hop as inspiration for the evening's dishes.

I. Our dining experience begins at 6pm with a 30 minute grace period. We highly recommend on-time arrival as to not miss any courses or parts of the experience. To ensure the quality of the evening's experience and enjoyment of all guests, courses can not be revisited if missed. All guests must be 21+ to attend.


II. We are proud to present this dining experience to all of our supporters. Our Executive Chef team attempts to make the fewest number of changes possible to each dish so that guests may enjoy the menu as they have originally envisioned. For this reason, dietary restrictions may not be able to be accommodated due to the complex nature of the ingredients. Please be advised that we are unable to make substitutions for restrictions or aversions, as this will compromise the integrity of the experience. We do our best to accommodate mild allergies but cannot guarantee that we work in a nut, dairy, gluten or allergen-free environment given the complexity of our kitchens and menus. There are no precautions we can take to ensure that every food item has been handled in an allergen-free environment by our purveyors during the packing and distribution process. For this reason, we are not able to accommodate guests where cross-contamination can trigger a reaction.


III. All tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable to a future event. If you are unable to attend after purchasing a ticket, you are more than welcome to transfer your ticket to another guest.
