Booksigning & Cocktail Party for Tiny Hot Dogs by Mary Giuliani

  • 6:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401


We are so excited to celebrate Mary Giuliani and her new book, Tiny Hot Dogs A Memoir of Small Bites, with a Hudson Valley “hometown” launch on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.  Tiny hot dogs & martinis will be served.

TINY HOT DOGS weaves together a collection of hilarious essays detailing Mary’s winding path from awkward, self-deprecating, Italian-Catholic school girl in an all-Jewish enclave on Long Island, where she dreamed of being an actress (in addition to having a bat mitzvah like all her friends), to one of New York City’s most prominent food entrepreneurs dubbed by the press as “Caterer to the Stars,” with a fulfilling career attending to the very crowd she hoped to be a part of some day.

Told in Mary’s easy, relatable voice, we hear of comical celebrity encounters alongside her not-so-easy journey to motherhood. And with the memorable stories come party foods worth celebrating, including the pigs in a blanket Mary loves so much, and the realization that even though her big break didn’t come on Broadway, it did come, because she’s been the center of the party since!

Advance Praise for TINY HOT DOGS:
“Mary Giuliani is not a name: it is a promise. Like a guarantee on the box, her name attached to an event, a book, a menu, a meal, is a golden ticket to good times. Mary makes me smile, laugh, cry happy tears, and she always leaves me hungry for more of her wisdom, her humor, and her stories. I raise my glass in a toast to the hostess with the mostest to celebrate this, her most personal, touching, and delicious work yet!” —Rachael Ray

“No one tells a story like Mary Giuliani and she does it with great recipes, too! To read her deeply personal memoir is to feel that you’ve connected with a dear friend who’s thoughtful, funny, and truly unique. I love this book!” —Ina Garten
