Chefs José Andrés and Roy Yamaguchi, innovators in the culinary community, will host tonight’s National Cherry Blossom Festival’s signature Pink Tie Party fundraiser, from 7:00 – 11:00 pm at the Mayflower Renaissance hotel. The Party kicks off the Festival’s Centennial Celebration (March 20 – April 27), commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the gift of trees from Tokyo to Washington, DC.

The celebrated hosts, both James Beard Award-winning chefs, will headline spring-and cherry-inspired cuisine and cocktails from more than 35 of metro-DC’s top and rising-star chefs.

In addition to entry tickets, a silent auction will also raise proceeds to benefit the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Inc. The 2012 Festival, March 20 through April 27, includes events featuring diverse and creative programming promoting traditional and contemporary arts and culture. Unfortunately, tickets are sold out for tonight’s event.

Food, Wine & Beer. I loved DC so much for college (Go Hoyas!), I returned here after a 10 year safari. I’m comfortable on both sides of the bar, and in or out of the kitchen. You could say the Whimsy Truck skipped me, but that’s probably just because I was checking out a food truck at the time. Oh, and you definitely want me on your trivia team.
