SILENT AUCTION FOR JAPAN: POPPING A MAGNUM FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Regular readers of the blog will know that we rarely post anything about upcoming events on DH. This is, as we often remind people, the eating adventures of the Brothers Majumdar and not a public service.
However, there are few things I would not do for my good chums, the Haskell Family. So, when David Haskell, LA's finest sommelier, asked me if I would mention a silent auction he is organising to benefit Japan, I was more than happy to oblige.
The auction coincides with the latest pop up event to be organised by David and Joseph Mahon, erstwhile Executive Chef of Bastide, and will take place at Royal-T in Culver City between the 17th and 19th of April.
The Magnum pop ups are always fun, with excellent food and great wine & beer pairings. With a percentage of the proceeds also going to benefit Japan, there is even now more reason to book a place.
There are some spectacular prizes on offer in the silent auction, including meals, wine, beer and ice cream tastings. Best of all, one generous soul will receive a five course feast prepared by Michael Voltaggio, Walter Manzke, Joseph Mahon, Craig Thornton & Waylynn Lucas complimented with wines selected by David himself.
I hope those new readers of DH in LA will take the time to click on the link below and see what the event is all about and make a bid for what is definitely a very worthy cause.
MAGNUM SILENT AUCTION FOR JAPAN
Thanks. Normal service is now resumed. Back to talking about us and our bellies.
P.S I found the images of David and Joseph on the Internet and am happy to credit the owners if they let me know who they are. I am sure they don't mind me using them for a great cause.
