I was on Fox 5 this morning with Holly Morris in a piece promoting Chicks with Chips, a charitable women’s poker tournament and cocktail competition scheduled for this Sunday.
If you missed it, here’s a link to part of the piece, and here’s the link to the segment where I demonstrated how to make a poker table at home.
Poker loving philanthropists can buy in for just $65 for a chance to win $500 or dinner at Restaurant 3 all while supporting New Endeavors by Women, a charity that helps women take control of their lives and move out of homelessness.
And for the men wishing to cheer on their ladies, Classic Cigars and British Goodies of Clarendon, Virginia will be offering cigar rolling and discussion on the Patio, and Restaurant 3 will be offering Scotch tastings in the lounge.
The tournament and cocktail competition is Sunday, March 22, 2009 at Restaurant 3 in Clarendon, Virginia from 2 pm to 6 pm. For reservations to ‘Chicks with Chips’ please call Restaurant 3 at 703-524-4440
Do your good deed for the day, and enjoy an evening out, all at the same time!
The Food and Friends event Dining Out for Life is perhaps one of the most perfect charity events, as it combines good intentions and good food. On Thursday, March 6th, restaurants around the district will donate proceeds to Food and Friends, a non-profit providing specialized, healthy meals to patients with HIV and AIDs in the area. Of the over 150 restaurants participating in the event, several are even donating 100% of proceeds to the cause! This includes our favorite, Executive Chef Danny Wells of BlackSalt, who is serving up all proceeds from the tasting room to Food and Friends. We also love Pizzeria Paradiso, Raku, and Tabard Inn and Little Fountain Cafe who are all participating in the event. If ever there was an excuse to indulge yourself, this is it.

This holiday season as you are thinking about all the giving of gifts, don’t forget to give back. Here are a few local charities you can help.
- Feed the Hungry – McKenna’s Wagon is a mobile soup kitchen operated by Martha’s Table. They are always looking for volunteers to help drive the “soup kitchen” (vans) around.
- Help the Capital Area Food Bank – For $15, you can pay for Thanksgiving food basket for a “seasoned member of the community” (meaning a senior citizen). You can also volunteer — check it out!
- Miriam’s Kitchen is looking for personal item donations, volunteer time, and financial contributions.
- Participate in the Homeless Walkathon on November 17th. Since it is only $25, you can rope a bunch of friends into walking with you!
- DC Central Kitchen (yes, they are the charity of Capital Food Fight) is selling virtual turkeys to help actually get turkeys out to families in need directly from their distributors, rather than having overflowing freezers. For $75 you are helping 30 meals for families in need!
