I spoke with someone at Uncommon Grounds and there is an event tonight that is open to the public. The invite only events are dedicated for those involved in the development of the space, vendors, laborers and their guests. The goal is to perfect the events before asking the public to pay.
The recipe must be successful as there are two Jazz shows tonight (8:30 and 10:00) and the $15 pp. cover includes 2 courses of small plates or desserts and unlimited wine bar during the show. You can reserve here or by phone at 718.243.2402.
I would love to go but can't make tonight's event. If someone else goes, please let me know how it is.
