RUB-A-GRUB feat. RICH MEDINA+ AKALEPSE @ Do or Dine Backyard // Labor Day Wknd // Sunday September 6th 2015
After a successful Memorial Day weekend event, Do or Dine and Sound Liberation Front are capping of the summer season with a Labor Day weekend edition of "Rub-A-Grub". This  beats-meets-bites backyard party has become synonymous with summertime in Bed-Stuy. This Labor day weekend edition will be featuring Rich Medina (Jump N' Funk) and Akalepse (Truth & Soul/ Plane Jane).  Now in its fourth year, the annual series has brought together some of New York's favorite DJs, heating things up alongside a unique menu crafted by Do or Dine's chefs. Past guests have included Ali Shaheed Muhammad, DJ Spinna among others.

Taking place in the restaurant's comfy backyard, Rub-A-Grub is an afternoon sensory experience that includes a series of small plate courses and a unique selection of DJs. As the day progresses, the chill afternoon vibes evolve into a classic backyard dance party with eclectic dance-floor numbers in the mix. Past food items have included culinary creations such as nippon nachos, fawntons, battered frog legs and the restaurant's infamous foie gras doughnuts. The last food round always features Do or Dine's take on BBQ.

One of New York's favorite DJs, Rich Medina will be taking the party on a sonic journey through
hip-hop, house, Afrobeat, funk and soul, unearthing one musical gem after another. From NYC to LA to
London to Tokyo, and everywhere in between, music lovers know not to miss a club night when Rich
Medina is manning the decks.

Obsessive crate digger DJ Akalepse is known for running the full spectrum of soul music. Together with Rich Medina, he hosts the widely respected weekly NYC party PROPS. Before that he was Resident DJ at the legendary & now closed NY Venue APT. With a heavyweight stash of 20,000+ records he plays classic tunes right next to obscurities, always pushing the listening audience a little in a sincere effort to break new records and reintroduce slept on tunes simultaneously. Akalepse has also put his vinyl passion into his role as label manager/ A&R of Brooklyn based Truth & Soul Records, famous for releasing hot wax from artists like El Michel's Affair or Lee Fields.

Do or Dine has been paving an innovative culinary trail in Bed-Stuy since in 2011, receiving wide acclaim for their fun and eccentric approach to cuisine or "fine diving" as the owners coined it. NY Magazine notes, "nothing is as straightforward as it seems. There are (savory) doughnuts stuffed with foie gras mousse, and fried dumplings under a veil of melted cheese an Asian-fied play on nachos."

Sound Liberation Front has been hosting music events in Brooklyn since 2007. From underground parties to large scale productions, SLF events have been featured by NPR, Time Out NY, Village Voice and National Geographic.
