Charleston, SC – Becky Preston Burke and Cory Burke are excited to unveil the 2015 season of Commune. Supper Cult with an upcoming launch party. Launched in 2014, the goal of Commune’s dinners is to give guests an insider’s look at local purveyors while allowing Charleston’s best chefs to experiment in a collaborative creative environment.

Each Commune. family-style dinner focuses on one purveyor and incorporates their wares into each of the dinner’s four courses. Pairing up two local guest chefs, each course not only highlights the specific purveyor, but allows the chefs to collaborate and experiment in ways they can’t always do within the confines of their respected restaurants. Last season’s dinners featured chefs such as Daniel Heinz of McCrady’s, Jason Stanhope of FIG, Michelle Weaver of Charleston Grill among others.

This season, Commune. will continue to work with some of Charleston’s most talented chefs and even bring in a few non-local guest chefs. Expanding on 2014, the dinner series also plans to work with sommeliers and mixologists to further incorporate the beverage component of the dinners.

The 2015 Commune. Launch Party will take place on February 22, 2015 from 6-9pm at the Techincal Events Company Warehouse (2925 Meeting Street, SC 29405). Dinners for the upcoming 2015 season will be announced and discounted tickets will be available for purchase. The party will feature Texas pitmaster John Lewis of Austin’s La Barbeque and Cannonborough Beverage Company.

Lewis, who is in the process of opening a Charleston restaurant, will work with Cory Burke of the Roti Rolls food truck to create a quirky Austin-inspired experience inspired by the Cannonborough Beverage Company sodas. Local distillers will craft cocktails featuring the sodas and we wouldn’t be surprised to spot a few guest bartenders.

Live music will be provided by a collaboration of local musicians including Campbell Brown of Gaslight Street, Oliver Goldstein and Daniel Crider of the Dead 27s, and Jeff Kozelski of the Outervention

Tickets to launch party are $60 in advance ($75 at the door) and include food, craft cocktails and local beer. Tickets are available for purchase at

Sponsors include Fork & Knife, Cathead Vodka, and Technical Events Company.

Jonathan Bonceck will be providing photography.
