Discount tickets to 2010’s hottest foodie event!

With New Year’s Eve approaching fast, I’m sure all of us have heard about the year’s hottest party – blah blah blah. I know its hard to think about an event happening next year, but if you can recall everyone and their brother talked about this event! It’s a perfect time to get a jump on next year’s biggest foodie event! In 2009, Taste of the Nation Washington, DC raised $124,000 to help fight childhood hunger. Local beneficiaries include Capital Area Food Bank, DC Hunger Solutions and Mary’s Center.  At a crucial time, this year’s event will help meet the staggering demand to feed the nearly 1 in 4 children that go hungry in the U.S.  

In the spirit of giving back this holiday season, Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Washington, DC will offer a special holiday ticket sale.  As Washington, DC’s premier epicurean celebration, the 2010 affair will feature the area’s culinary stars working together to end childhood hunger in Washington, DC. I have volunteered to be a part of this upcoming fabulous event and have attended meetings and gatherings for the last several months in preparation. I wish that I would have remembered to put this on my Gift Wish List.  

As a thank you for purchasing your ticket now, Taste of the Nation Washington, DC will offer a limited time holiday discount until December 31, 2009, both General Admission (originally $85) and VIP tickets (originally $125) will be offered at a special 10% discounted price. Tickets can be purchased by visiting TasteOfTheNation.org/holiday.  Please follow the instructions for the DC event and enter JINGLE in the promotional code field.

Each ticket purchased helps Share Our Strength’s ambitious campaign to help end childhood hunger in America by 2015.  In the wake of staggering reports that nearly half of all children in the U.S. will be on food stamps at some point in their life, there is no time to waste.  The time to act is now.

On Monday, April 12th at the National Building Museum from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m., with an exclusive preview hour for VIP guests beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Guests can look forward to a showcase of more than 60 of the area’s best restaurants, wine bars and mixoligists for an evening of exquisite dining and imbibing. Leading DC’s event are Chef Chair RJ Cooper of Vidalia, Mixologist Chair Derek Brown of The Passenger, and Wine Chair Nadine Brown of Charlie Palmer Steak.  Live DJ entertainment, interactive mixology lessons and the chance to win luxury auction items are just a sampling of what to expect at the fabulous event.

Dining in DC goes POSH

posh-dining-room Have you been to Posh Restaurant and Supper Club

Dining in DC is excited to announce that POSH is offering our loyal Dining in DC followers an amazing promotion all throughout the month of May. Dining in DC readers are offered a special 20% discount when you visit Posh!(There are a few minor restrictions, so please see below for details).
Have you ever been to Posh? Well Posh is not just a restaurant, it is a truly unique dining experience and offers a one- stop shop for all night entertainment. Opened in Fall 2006 by the Robert Johnson Group of Companies (RLJ), founder and former CEO of BET (Black Entertainment Television) to introduce DC to a true “supper club”. The concept of a restaurant and a club combined is based on the model of old-time jazz clubs and speakeasies which offers more than just a meal; it’s an evening out!  With cocktails before dinner, followed by a mutilple course meal, the dining experience lasts throughout a large portion of the evening. Dinner is followed by live entertainment such as comedy, music, or dancing. In this way, a supper club provides one place to enjoy the entire evening. The old-fashioned supper posh-interiorclubs pushed dining tables along the wall after supper so couples could dance.  A more modern version, like Posh provides a separate dance floor and a plush comfortable setting with dim lights and a cozy, romantic atmosphere. Derek Newton, Managing Director and General Manager says, “We still move our tables out to open up the dance floor, just like in the olden days.”

Posh has received accolades by DC area diners such as Voted #1 Restaurant/Bar Scene in DC, #1 Hot Spot and #1 & #2 Late Night Find by OpenTable.com Diners. Posh Executive Chef, Christopher Willis studied at the Pennsylvania Culinary institute  has nearly 15 years experience in the restaurant industry and was the personal chef for Tom Clancy. He has prepared meals for celebrities visiting Posh such as Patti Labelle, Lorraine Bracco, Chaka Kahn, Smokey Robinson, Nelly, Denzel Washington, Richard Branson, Sharon Stone, Robert De Niro, Forest Whitaker, Chris Tucker, Marisa Tomei and Samuel L. Jackson. He has an impressive Bio.
