Sugar and Champagne - A Worthwhile Event

Sugar and Champagne

It's a benefit for the Washington Humane Society.
It's a "pet" charity of many DC area chefs.
No surprise really, as who else loves you when you come home from work at 4:00 in the morning with meat and cooking grease ground into your very soul? Your dog.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a lot of pictures, but I did get some good shots of the dish of the night.

This was a dish from a restaurant named Trademark which is in the Westin Alexandria.
I'm not usually one for hotel restaurants, but this was enticement enough to make an exception.

Other notable stops in the event were Scott Drewno's Spicy WonTon Soup, Spike Mendelsohn's Salmon Rilletes, Chef Geoff's truffles (I think there were Pop-Rocks in one of them!) and Chocolate Bacon Macarons. 

Great fund-raiser for a good cause, and the cost of admission is reasonable. If you support the Humane Society's mission this is a great way to show it.
Well done folks.
