About the Event
Throughout this extended difficult season of loss, change, stress, and isolation we are all navigating, I have been asking myself, "How do I continue to honor the sense?"
Right at the start of 2020, things began to end all around me. When my coffee bar, Middleford Coffee, closed in March, in the midst of that grief I began this process. Running my business didn't mean I "honored the sense". Having to close didn't mean that I failed to "honor the sense". This question was more about how I was continuing to engage with each moment, every person around me, all circumstances and situations I faced. It's not a gauge to tell me whether I'm right or wrong, being good or bad; rather it's a guide that encourages me to be authentic and pursue what makes me uniquely me.
Honor Meal is this opportunity for me: To be authentic in my process as I genuinely cook and serve a meal to others. Inviting guests into this experience, to be inspired to honor their true-selves.
You’ve received this invitation because you were thought of.
This is a night for you to participate in honor.
What: A restaurant experience for you and your guest made by Jonathan Hillis at his home
Where: The Greenwood Estate Dining Room – 3045 Bellinger Lane Medford OR
When: Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9:00PM
How: Come as you are and pay what you want at the end of the meal: Cash App: @jonathanchillis // Venmo: @JonathanCHillis // Cash or check to Jonathan Hillis
Why: The honor system “is an endeavor based on trust, honor, and honesty.” I honor you for coming, being, and offering whatever it is you feel is honoring to provide.
Please include in your RSVP any sensitivities, allergies, or restrictions so that I can honor you.
While this is a dinner for you and your guest, a maximum of 8 guests will be eating in the dining room. You will be seated at either your own table or a large table that is spaced out for you to have your own meal together.
A limited amount of beer, wine, and whiskey will be chosen and paired for each party.
Jonathan will cook and serve all courses and introduce the meal, as well as close out the night. These evenings are curated for you and your guest to have a night out together, there will be no led group discussions.
Everyone will arrive and be served at the same time, and eat the same meal (unless prior arrangements are made due to food restrictions). Please arrive at 6:30 as all tables will be served simultaneously.
Park in the circle driveway in front of the main house, pulling all the way forward to allow cars in behind you and enter in the front door.
This theme of honor begins at the door where you’ll remove your shoes before entering. From there you’ll cross the threshold and place your phone in the entryway basket.
Masks, social distancing, and other COVID restrictions are not being enforced or required. This is a night about trust, where "there are no governing rules" – as is, with the honor system.
