#BRUCIEISCLOSING

 

As we all know by now, we will be serving our final plates of Spaghetti and Caesar Salad this Valentines Day.  This farewell is really bittersweet for us, and we are really touched by all of the kind words and memories that you all have shared over the past few weeks.  It melts our hearts big time.  So, let's talk logistics....  How are you going to get your Brucie fix after the 14th? Well we have some ideas!

 

First, you can join us for the final hurrah!  We have limited seating on February 14th, but still have reservations for the 13th.  We will be doing a super fun two part Valentines Day celebration this year (obvi).  February 13th will be wedding themed, and Valentines Day proper will be, well what else, a funeral.  A celebratory New Orleans style funeral! The menu will be the same both nights, and will be a $150pp prix fix.  Keep scrolling to view the menu, which includes all our hit songs through out the past 5+ years. If you are reading this, you already know that we that if we know how to do one thing here, it's PARTY!!!  If you can't score a seat, worry not, we will have a big heated tent in the back yard for drinking, hugging, crying, making out, ice luge shot taking, meatball eating, and dancing!

 

Next, we would like to inform you that we will be having a silent auction over the next two weeks to pass on some of our most treasured Brucie belongings.  Please click the "auction" section of the website to view what is available for you to purchase!  Click the link to find all of it listed on our ebay page!

 

Finally, if you are wondering what is next for us, wonder no longer!  Brucie's owner, Zahra Tangorra, Chef de Cuisine Jennie Lupo and General manager Nicole Bailey, are combining forces to form "High Five Girl", a lifestyle brand and blog.  In the immediate future, the ladies of High Five Girl will be available for catering, consulting and party throwing!  They will also keep the Brucie lasagna program alive, with pick ups of our beloved pasta at several different wine shops in Brooklyn and Manhattan! For now, please keep checking the Brucie website for updates on all things Brucie and High Five Girl!  Also, please follow us on instagram @_highfivegirl_

Dear New York,

 

How do I explain how deeply I love you? Your vivaciousness, your energy, your people, the smell of your hair.......

 

It has been my greatest honor to be in this relationship with you these past 5 1/2 years. Every day that we spent together was a new adventure. I felt privileged to have lasted in a love affair with such a fickle and fiery partner , knowing that the tenure of our union was in fact a testament to my character as well. When you bestowed gifts upon me, when your inhabitants filled my room, when your critics sang my praise, the world stopped. I never imagined that I could have lasted so long with someone like you, and the fact that you showed me love for so long and love so great has made my life feel like it meant something.

 

But, as you might be sensing from the mellow dramatic tone of this letter, I need to say goodbye. I need to move on and find my peace, my real purpose, my grown up identity. Every second was a gift and a pleasure and while you will probably soon forget me, please know I will never forget you or what you have done for me, it has meant everything, and I will love you the most for the rest of my life. 

 

Goodbye New York, I will be closing my doors February 15th. I don't know where I am going , but I know where I have been, and it was in the arms of the greatest city in the whole wide world. My staff and I look forward to all the new adventures and opportunity you have to share. While this part of our relationship is over, I really think and hope we can stay friends. Thank you. I love you. Take care.

 

Oh, you left your toothbrush here, I'm just going to throw it out.......

 

Love,

Brucie
