Pasta Tarot: It's in the Cards & the Sauce

Oh, madone! It was a feast to remember as Pasta Tarot took over The Standard, East Village for Red Sauce Nights.
Take tarot's traditional Euro roots, give them a streak of Italian-American pizzaz, and you've got The Pasta Tarot, a marvelous pasta-inspired deck. Devised by Rob TrugliaJeff Pettrieto, and Lindsay Mound, each intricately-designed card represents a different pasta shape and accompanying mood. 

The deck was begging to be brought to life with an IRL dinner party, so we invited the team over to The Standard, East Village to host "Red Sauce Nights", carbo-loaded evenings of martinis, meatballs and mysticism. Red & white checkered tablecloths, oversized pepper mills and straw Chianti bottles transformed our dining room, while Italian disco pumped through the speakers. Rob and Jeff floated between tables to decode life's most important mysteries (i.e. exactly which pasta shape you embody). The deck's talented illustrator Lindsay Mound even flew in from New Mexico to join the last night of festivities. 

In between readings, diners snacked on bread sticks, decadent bowls of pasta and cannolis galore. No party is complete without a raffle - lucky guests took home The Standard x Jumbo lasagna-shaped pool float, Pasta Tarot scarfs & more. And on March 12, Adrianne Paerels of Hello Adrianne dropped in to co-host, setting the tables with cute sketchbooks and setting up shop with her food-inspired designs (tomato-printed pants, anyone?). 

The three-part dinner series was a time. Missed it? Scroll through snaps below & head to @thestandardev on Instagram for tickets to the next pop-ups of the moment.
