Saturday February 13th: Lazy Bear Night for Project Open Hand
This Saturday we're pleased to host David Barzelay, who runs Lazy Bear, an underground restaurant serving progressive and modern fine-dining food and also caters private dinners. He has a food blog at www.eatfoo.com, where you can follow his exploits and find announcements about past and future Lazy Bear events.
MSF profits will go to Project Open Hand, which, according to some of their service statistics, provided an average of 2175 meals a day and delivered 190 bags of groceries a day (for a yearly total of almost a jillion).
Specal thanks again to Shoe Shine Wine, who have donated a considerable amount of their excellent 2005 Petite Syrah as part of an ongoing fundraiser for the Food Pantry.
