Yeah She Did: If You Can't Take the Heat

WED // JAN 23 // 06:30PM

YEAH SHE DID is a storytelling series that shines a light on the sheroes that should have been. A lineup of female-identifying comedians, writers, and storytellers join forces to share the stories of some of the greatest women the world has ever known (but history forgot).

This Month:

If You Can't Take the Heat

Women in Food

We're kicking off 2019 with a delicious installation of Yeah She Did. If you can't take the heat celebrates history's baddest female chefs and restaurateurs. From the BOH to the FOH, equality tastes pretty damn good. 

Doors: 6:30pm
Show: 7:00pm
Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door
Events are 21+
Venue is mixed seating and standing-room: arrive early to get a good seat!

In Partnership with Bottomless Closet: 

Bottomless Closet's mission is to be the connection that inspires and guides disadvantaged New York City women to enter the workforce and achieve success.

30% of the ticket proceeds go to this fantastic organization.

Hosted by Molly Gaebe is a comedian living in New York City where she can be seen every Saturday with her house team 'Women and Men' at the Upright Citizens Brigade. She is an abortion doula with The Doula Project and a writer and performer at Lady Parts Justice, a reproductive rights organization that uses comedy to expose anti-choice extremist douchebags. 


Catherine Clune-Taylor is a writer, activist and academic from Canada who will definitely apologize (with accent!) if you bump into her. She moved to the US two years ago to take up a gig as the resident “Angry Black Feminist” in the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton, and finds that the role fits her quite nicely. She has a PhD in philosophy (along with too many other degrees), and works in fields of feminist science studies and bioethics. When not philosophizing, making people laugh, or apologizing – sorry! – she likes to binge watch Netflix while eating Cheeze-its. She is officially entering her Queer Plant Lady years, and is really excited about it.

Anna Cain Bianco is a NYC based performer and Museum Hack guide. Ask her about what she's working on right now, don't ask her about bananas. 

Special Guests:

Ysanet Batista, a queer Black-Dominican woman, born in Harlem, NY and raised in between the Dominican Republic and Hialeah, FL. Ysanet graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and spent a couple of years working in major hotel companies before transitioning to community based work. She is the creator and chef of Woke Foods, a worker cooperative focused on offering Dominican and other Afro-Caribbean plant based foods through catering, cooking classes, and workshops. When she is not working on developing Woke Foods, Ysanet is helping other people start their own worker-cooperative businesses at Green Worker Cooperatives. She is currently a student at Farm School NYC earning a certificate in Urban Agriculture. 

Leah Kirts is a Brooklyn-based writer whose expertise is grounded in connections across food, ecofeminism, queerness and veganism. Connect with her @leahkirts (all social platforms)

Emma Jane Gonzalez is a chef. She co-runs the culinary and event programming at North Brooklyn Farms, an urban farm and public greenspace in South Williamsburg. Though she specializes in plant-based cuisine, she's recently started eating eggs if they come out of cool chickens. 

REFUND POLICY: Tickets maybe be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
