Do you also enjoy a good cause? Then this Friday, you should eat and drink until you explode at Capitol Hill Housing's Omnivorous benefit at the Century Ballroom. It costs $75, but unlike many parsimonious charity things, it's all the food and wine you can engulf, plus a cocktail made with brand-new, local Oola Distillery vodka.
Restaurants including Anchovies & Olives, Cafe Presse, Lark, Monsoon, Poppy, Skillet, Spinasse/Artusi, Terra Plata, Zoe/Quinn’s, and more, more, MORE—full menu after the jump.
Also: music by Global Flavors with DJ Rhythma.
But mostly: GLUTTONY. More info/tix here.
If you do not have $75, there's this!
Aaaannnd, more recommended chow events.
