Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation this Monday

I'm posting this just in case someone didn't already see this on Metrocurean, but this year's Taste of the Nation will be held next Monday, March 24th at 7:00pm at the Washington Hilton just north of Dupont Circle.

According to the website:

Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation®, presented by American Express®, is the nation’s premier culinary benefit dedicated to making sure no kid in America grows up hungry. Each spring, the nation's hottest chefs and mixologists donate their time, talent and passion at more than 55 events across the United States and Canada, with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger. Since its inception 20 years ago, Taste of the Nation has raised more than $70 million.

Some of the restaurants represented will include Dino, Central, Hook, Restaurant Eve, and Proof.

Interested in going? Tickets will run you $85, but you can get VIP tickets for $200 and $2500. Click here to buy your ticket.

I for one will not be going, not because I don't care about hungry kids, but because my AmEx needs a break.

Is anyone out there going? Is there one restaurant/chef/mixologist that you're really excited to see?

This is hands down the best culinary event in DC. Over 60 chefs trying to impress us with amazing tasting. There are also around 20 vineyards represented. Considering most food charity events will run you about $200, I think $85 is not bad. Think of it as the most impressive and lengthy tasting menu you will ever have :)
