    June 29, 2015 By: Erin Dorney
    The essence of a pop-up dinner is a temporary, communal meal served in a place that doesn’t normally host dinners. They sometimes focus on a certain theme or concept and are held in nontraditional locations like art galleries, co-ops, co-working spaces, teaching kitchens, bars, grocery stores, movie theaters or even outside. Pop-up dinners have been hosted in these very venues throughout Lancaster and York over the past three years.
