Foodie To-Do List: Kids' Restaurant Week, CulinAerie Cake Class, Starlight Foundation Soiree

TodoAs part of an ongoing effort to alert you, the readers of DC Foodies, to all of the really cool food-related events, classes and opportunities throughout the Washington Metropolitan area, we give you this week's edition of the Foodie To-Do List.

Each Wednesday, we give you a heads-up on a few of the upcoming events that we think look particularly interesting.  This week, we've got:

Kids' Restaurant Week at Seventeen Area Restaurants:

What:
Seventeen restaurants are offering deals for Foodie Families.  Take the kids out to dinner knowing that the restaurants are welcoming them - not just tolerating them.  A great way to broaden your children's palates and to enjoy a night out all at once.

When:
Now through June 21st, nightly between 5 and 7 PM

Where:
Participating restaurants - see website for list of participants, their menus and to make reservations.

Why:
Chicken fingers, hot dogs and macaroni & cheese do not a children's menu make!  These restaurants are showing that they value their littlest customers (and their parents) by offering these family-friendly dining opportunities.  And a portion of the proceeds benefit Miriam's Kitchen and Eastern Market!

Cost: 
Deals vary from participant to participant.  Restaurants are generally offering Restaurant Week-style deals on multi-course meals for adults and kid-friendly specials for the children.


Love Cake?  Learn How to Make Them From the Pros at CulinAerie:

What:
D.C. cooking school CulinAerie is conducting a cake making workshop. Attendees will learn how to prepare pastel de tres leches; apple, almond & amaretti cake; lemon mousse cupcakes; and a seasonal Italian fruit tart.
 
When:
Saturday, June 20, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
 
Where:
CulinAerie
1131 14th St., NW
Washington, DC
 
Why:
Because everyone loves the person who brings that great dessert.  This course will help prepare you for all those summer celebrations with an arsenal of delicious homemade celebration cakes.
 
Cost: $85 per person


Starlight Children's Foundation Summer Soiree:

What:
A swank rooftop party with wine and spirits from Schneider's of Capitol Hill...but wait, there's more!  This event benefits the Starlight Children's Foundation, a charitable organization that helps seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.

When:
Thursday, June 25th, starting at 6:30 PM

Where:
Rooftop of Senate Square
201 I (Eye) Street, NE
Washington, DC

Why:
Rooftop party complete with DJ?  Check.  Good food and wine?  Check.  A great cause?  Check.  Yup, this one's got it all. 

Cost:
$75 per person in advance, $85 per person at the door.  Sign up and register at their website.
