If you have been reading my past articles you will know about Chef John Howie and how he contributes back to Society. Here is his latest event in Seattle, Washington. It sounds fun. I love New Orleans food and spirit. Here is the announcement of the event. If you are in Vancouver, BC like me, this is an easy trip down. Enjoy!
Seattle, Washington — Chef John Howie and singing Seahawk alumni Craig Terrill are bringing a taste of New Orleans, the official host city of Super Bowl XLVII, to SPORT Restaurant & Bar on Thursday, January 10th, 2013. The duo, the Seahawks’ chef and alumni representatives for football’s biggest faceoff, have organized “The Big Easy” inspired event as part of the “Kick Hunger Challenge” sponsored by Taste of the NFL. That evening, 150 guests will enjoy an evening of fun, food and foot-stomping music with 100% of the proceeds going to Food Lifeline and fighting hunger in Western Washington. For every dollar raised, the organization will be able to provide a full day of nutritious meals for a hungry individual.
The “Party with a Purpose” is priced at $35 per person and kicks off at 7:00 pm with a hearty dinner of distinctive Creole and Cajun influenced dishes including Gumbo, Spicy Creole Chicken, Cajun Style Crawfish Boil with Corn & Red Potatoes, Jambalaya made with Andouille Sausage & Tasso Ham, and Maker’s Mark Bourbon Bread Pudding. Craig Terrill and his band, comprised of some of Seattle’s best musicians, will play original American Rock songs as well as classics. Guests will also have a chance during a special silent auction to bid on an amazing array of specialty items from Seahawk memorabilia to food and drink certificates at venues throughout the city. Throughout the evening, there will be special drink pricing on featured cocktails such as the Hurricane and local brews.
SPORT will be closed for this blockbuster fundraiser to walk-in dining the night of the event. Tickets are available for purchase on Brown Paper Tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/306667 .
