In recognition of Philippine Independence Day we partnered with EIGHTY to host a traditional Kamayan dinner highlighting the talented Filipino makers + creatives living and/or working in Jersey City.
For this meal there were no plates, no utensils, just guests’ own two hands and one long table lined with lush banana leaves stacked with traditional Filipino food.
Going beyond just food, Marinell Montales of EIGHTY led a panel discussion with three JC creatives that embody the Filipino spirit and have found success in their unique career paths.
