Starting Friday, October 4, and continuing every Wednesday through Saturday in October, The High Line Hotel is offering its exclusive Pumpkin Service, Bottle Service experience. The activity launched last year and sold out in its first run, we’re told.
This fall, guests can again enjoy the best table in the house—in the hotel’s front garden—with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV. Then, master carver-in-residence Brent “Pumpkin King” Heuser will create a custom piece of art carved into a pumpkin for you.
A portrait of yourself? Your love? Your pooch? No design is too difficult for Heuser, who began chiseling pumpkins five years ago. In fact, the Ohio native won a carving competition for his likeness of Frozen's Elsa drinking icy craft brew—and he created a Lady Gaga centerpiece for her Joanne album release party.
Reservations for the 45-minute Traditional Pumpkin Carving sessions are available from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Each reservation includes a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label NV and a pumpkin (provided by The High Line Hotel) custom carved to the design of your choice.
Got a VIP (Very Important Pooch) in your life? Opt for the Pupkin Experience instead. The package includes a pumpkin carved in your pet's likeness and doggie beer served in a custom travel bowl (yours to keep!), as well as dog treats on demand. Naturally, there's a bottle for bubbly for you, too.
The High Line Hotel's other Halloween festivities includes its Halloween Dog Costume Parade on Sunday, October 27.
