    [Mods, I hope I am not out of line posting this, as it's a charitable event, and one of our own (ChefCosta) is participating]

    Here’s a great chance to support the DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table, while enjoying an evening of top-notch drinks and/ or a first-class dinner.

    The ‘Sips’ is held on the evening of January 24 at the Newseum, and features some of the top mixologists and artisan nibbles in the DC area. The ‘Suppers’ are hosted at various homes throughout the DC area on the evening of January 25, and the meals will be prepared by many of the best chefs in the area, and even some from other places (such as David Chang of NYC’s Momofuko and Milk Bar fame).

    Here’s the general info:

    And here’s a direct link to the EventBright tickets page:

    Yeah, it’s not cheap, but it is tax-deductible, and since the chefs, servers, etc. are all volunteers and the food/ ingredients is donated that means the ticket money you spend is all going to wind up at DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table.

    I am not playing favorites here, but I can personally vouch for the food prepared by Michael Friedman of Red Hen, Michael Costa from Zaytinya and Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve. As far as the rest are concerned, most are on my list of “Must eat at their restaurant sometime real soon!” I put in to be a volunteer for the Suppers -- I'll find out tomorrow if I made the cut, and if so which dinner I get to work at.

    BUMP -- Only 2 weeks away!

    A bunch of the Suppers are sold out, but many still have tickets available. Chef Mike Costa's dinner still has some tickets remaining -- this is a great way to try the cooking of a fellow knife knut who's restaurant is one of the best in DC.

    Last BUMP!!

    Still tickets for Chef Costa's dinner Sunday night -- his cooking partner is the cookbook author from Greece that Jose Andres consulted when planning Zaytinya. So their dinner will probably be a level above the already-great Zaytinya fare.

    Also, there may a KKF chef working one of the tables at Sips on Saturday night. If the Suppers are too much $$ for you, the Sips is a much more affordable option. All the ticket money goes straight to DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table, and most of the ticket price is deductible as a charitable contribution.
