Elaine Kaufman, the legendary proprietor of the eponymous Upper East Side eatery, has recorded the first video greeting for “NYC Restaurants ♥Our Troops.  “God Bless You and please come home soon,” she urges. On the recording, Elaine recounts her joy that members of the military often spend their leave time in her establishment enjoying the spaghetti bolognaise in her homey environment before shipping back out.

About "Mess Night"

“Mess Night” is a venerable Marine Corps tradition dating from the 1500s that few civilians experience. The event encompasses a cocktail hour, an opulent feast, good cheer and a range of fines for violating guidelines of the mess, which all guests are informed of at the onset. (Violations include foul language, chewing gum, rapping glassware for attention, rearranging table settings and discussing politics, shop, money or religion. Fines begin at $1 and escalate to $30 for “NYC elite” and civilians. Proceeds will benefit the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation.)

General Alfred M. Gray, Jr. a distinguished military leader and a former Commandant of the Marine Corps, Headquarters Marine Corps, Washington, D.C., will be the Military Guest of Honor at the third annual New York City “Mess Night.”
