What: East Hampton Sandwich Co. P​op-up

Where: Kirby Ice House

The scoop: Nearly 150 guests filled the back porch of Kirby Ice House to get a first taste of the nationally-acclaimed neighborhood sandwich shop. Founder Hunter Pond was ​front and center ​s​har​ing​ stories ​about the concept and the inspiration behind some of their popular sandwiches. A portion of sales of the evening ​benefitted the Young Houstonians for Houston Children’s Charity, whose mission is to help underprivileged children in Houston.

Guests basked in summer-like tempratures​, wearing Nantucket-inspired styles, while​ savoring handcrafted sandwiches — including mini lobster rolls and fried chicken and jack, plus whoopie pies for a sweet treat, and frozen libations.

The occasion served as a preview for the two upcoming East Hampton Sandwich Co. openings — the first in late April at River Oaks District, followed by a May debut in Montrose at 907 Westheimer.
