140 Supper Club Dinner: Brinner at Fairmont Copley Plaza
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

September is National Breakfast Month, and breakfast is arguably the best meal, so why not enjoy it twice in one day?

Join the Fairmont Copley Plaza for “Brinner,” breakfast for dinner, and indulge in the satisfying tastes of morning food with the Fairmont’s upscale flair. The menu features classic breakfast flavors creatively presented for dinnertime, and a DIY mimosa bar will be open all night for guests to celebrate like it’s the A.M. Special champagne pairings will be offered each course as well.

While not mandatory, guests are encouraged to wear elegant pajamas or nightwear (appropriate for a communal gathering) to truly get in the “Brinner” spirit.

The five course “brinner” is part of Fairmont Copley Plaza’s popular 140 Supper Club series where guests descend a century-old staircase and whisper a password to be immersed into a themed, intimate dining experience hosted by Executive Chef Laurent Poulain.

“In the fields of science and art, new paradigms emerge only when we dare to go beyond what is established.” – Irene Georgakoudi, Tufts University, Biomedical Engineering 

The French Cultural Center is exploring science as the catalyst for artistic expression and art as the catalyst for scientific observation! Join them for the launch of their fall cultural programs with an intriguing gallery opening presented in partnership with the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association. The gallery opening will include a reception with light refreshments.

Free and open to the public, registration required.

Event in English with French transcripts.  

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Art on Science: 26 études (AS26) is a collaborative international art project sponsored by the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association (BSSCA) that crosses the lines between art, science, and culture. Thirteen artists from Boston and Strasbourg each were paired with scientists from their home city to explore a scientific theme. The result? A testament to the power of curiosity and creativity and 52 incredible works of art accompanied by written scientific commentaries.

Artists took tours of laboratories. Scientists made studio visits. Some pairs worked shoulder-to-shoulder with live specimens, while others communicated virtually to share ideas and resources. Come explore the fields of art and science with us as we unveil these intriguing works!
