I plan my day around snacks and meals. I am at my very worst — rude, irritable, inarticulate, dismissive, judgmental, and unsympathetic — when I am hungry. After eating 33 XXL pizzas at Pete & Elda’s, I see no reason I couldn’t have a successful career as a competitive eater.
For all these reasons, I strongly advocate the Great American Beer and Bake Sale, happening in DC tomorrow.
Date: Saturday, September 11th
Time: 1-4 pm
Location: Adams Mill Bar and Grill
Just like the good ole days when your elementary school PTA (or PTO if you went to Applegate School) would raise money for Friday night rollerskating, your super-involved, overachieving philanthropists are baking goodies to benefit Share Our Strength, a non-profit organization that addresses childhood hunger. In this case, it’s my friend and colleague, Andrea.
In addition, the greatest cook I’ve ever met* (sorry Mom) has made some of her renowned oatmeal cookies, this time starring butterscotch chips. I mean, are you kidding me? And if that’s not enough, Adams Mill is offering $3 pints and $10 pitchers in case you get thirsty.
