LIVE AUCTION PACKAGES
LOT 1 - THE TASTIEST TRIUMVIRATE
It's a Mid-Atlantic culinary triple threat! Head north to Baltimore for your first stop: Gunther & Co., where you'll enjoy a five-course tasting menu for two with wine pairings. Start with a shellfish tower and champagne; end with a dessert tasting; and in between, plan courses together with guest chef Jerry Trice to design a delicious evening. Sated, sleep well at The Four Seasons, where you have a room for two for the night. Come morning, enjoy Sunday Brunch for two (beverages excluded) at Wit and Wisdom, where No Kid Hungry support Chef Zachary Mills heads up the kitchen and the menu includes a raw bar, a s'mores station, and everything in between.
Next stop: Adams Morgan. The Line Hotel, opening in August, will be the home for A Rake's Progress, the first DC restaurant from celebrated Chef Spike Gjerde (Woodberry Kitchen, Parts & Labor). You'll be among the first guests there to enjoy dinner for two. Afterwards, head to your room for a good night’s sleep in one of hotel’s boutique rooms housed inside the 100-year old historic church.
Finally, head south to Richmond and spend a day by the river with Chef Devin Rose of Rappahannock Oyster Co. Chef Rose will share a behind the scenes look oyster cultivation at this family business that has celebrated the Chesapeake since 1899. Enjoy more of their delicious bivalves during dinner for two at Merroir, the "tasting room" cousins Ryan and Travis Croxton conceived when they revived their family's oyster farm.
At last it’s time to roll on home. Nice trip.
LOT 2 - ENDLESS PASTA-BILITIES IN NYC
Jonathan Waxman has rocked NYC's culinary scene across decades. As the chef and owner of Barbuto in Manhattan's West Village and Jams at the 1 Hotel Central Park - plus a few more renowned restaurants across the country - he has been a pioneer of California cuisine, bringing fresh, dynamic flavors to familiar favorites and creating something completely his own. And now this James Beard Award winner, is opening up the garage gate for you and a few pals. Head north to NYC for a personalized cooking class of Barbuto favorites for four with Chef Waxman and you'll learn the secrets of the dishes that have been charming NYers for years. When the flour has settled, the dough rested and your apron off for the day, retire to the chef's table in the kitchen of Barbuto, where you and friends will enjoy a tasting menu for ten.
LOT 3 - POLITICS ASIDE -- LET'S GET PROGRESSIVE
Round up your pals and clear your calendar: you've got exciting reservations for a dine-around of James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schlow's hottest DC restaurants. Grab your nearest and dearest - six of you will travel the town in your own limo for a progressive meal. Start the evening at The Rigsby for cocktails and snacks. Next, settle in at urban trattoria Alta Strada for a taste of Italy - you'll enjoy pasta, pizza, and more. Finally, top off the evening with Latin American flair over dessert at Tico.
But that's not all! Roll up your sleeves: we're putting you to work during a pasta making class for six guests with Chef Schlow. When your pastas are prepped and you're famished, sit down with your pals for lunch at Caso Lare in the Glover Park Hotel. Toast a job well done.
LOT 4 - IN-HOME DINNER FOR 10
Your welcoming home, your closest pals, your best dinner party. Two of DC's hottest chefs are rolling in to cook a multi-course meal with wine pairings for ten guests. Donning their aprons in your kitchen: tonight's Chef Chair and Top Chef finalist Marjorie Meek-Bradley of Smoked & Stacked and Chef Alexis Samayoa, serving up his own spin on Mexican cuisine from Espita Mezcaleria in Shaw. And they're not just cooking: the chefs will include a cooking lesson, leading you to prep part of the meal. Singing for your supper, and enjoying it, too!
LOT 5 - SUMMER SOIREE FOR 50
The days are long, the nights are warm... the season beckons for a festive gathering of friends. A Summer Soiree for 50 guests, chez vous.
You bring the wine and dishes. We'll bring the pros: chefs from across the north and southeast to cook up a celebratory Mediterranean meal (with a dash of urban and rural sensibility). Your kitchen crew includes Top Chef alum Jen Carroll of Requin (VA, and soon, DC), Joey Campanaro of Little Owl (NYC), Jeff Michaud of Marc Vetri's Osteria (Philadelphia), and Andy Ticer and Mike Hudman of Hog & Hominy, a GQ restaurant of the year (Memphis).
Your house just may be the hottest reservation of the year.
