*The RAMMYS ... tonight the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington will announce at a members' reception the 2013 RAMMYS theme. It will be hosted for the RAMW membership by Fujimar on 14th St and K. The annual chef and restaurant awards gala for RAMW will be held at the Marriott Wardman Park on Sunday, June 23. You should see the Tweets popping up around 6 p.m. with the unveiling ... remember last year it was Hats Off to Restaurants. What will 2013 bring?
*TONIGHT, it's on to Tony and Joe's at the Washington Harbour for the Snakehead Dinner featuring DC chefs and Hall of Fame Washington Redskin John Riggins. You can see here a promo for the event that appeared on News 8 this morning. Scott Drewno from The Source and John Rorapaugh from ProFish were on the set today with Riggo talking about tonight's guest of honor, the invasive snakehead. We talked about it recently here at Sauce on the Side. Stay tuned tonight for Tweets and instagrams from @FSM_Michael and @fotorules.*TO DO: Make your reservation (donation) today for next week's "Turn Up the Heat" for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. It's one of my favorite events ... an evening of delicious food on Feb. 4 at the Ritz-Carlton Washington that helps raise awareness of ovarian cancer and support programs for women with the devastating disease. Ris Lacoste (RIS) steps in to assemble the dozens of celebrated women chefs from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. It's the 8th Annual Gala highlighting the best of these chefs’ talents while raising funds for ovarian cancer. I hope to see you there.
