What is Saturday Night Sips event in Washington DC?

I'd like to tell you about Saturday Night Sips. Through the magic of Twitter, I was invited to this event by one of the organizers, Greg Nelson, aka @socialepicurean. The event marries food, drinks, chefs, mixologists, and most importantly two great beneficiaries: DC Central Kitchen and Martha's Table. Please see the information below directly from the eventribe website, where you can order your tickets.


Saturday Night Sips is a cocktail reception with JOSE ANDRES, ALICE WATERS AND JOAN NATHAN, celebrating the role young people play in fighting hunger both locally and nationally.  The event will have tastes from the area's hottest young chefs, specialty drinks created by DC mixologists and wine tastings by Le Baccanti and speakers from Martha's Table and DC Central Kitchen.

i love this concept. right up my alley.. wish i were in town to attend. Jose Andres is great and so is his food, obviously. And anything to bring awareness to ending hunger is what I'm talking about. Perfect. Thanks for sharing. I might repost on my blog, too.
