DC's premier culinary event, Taste of the Nation, will be held on April 8, 2013. I serve as the Restaurant Chair for the event, so I won't be able to host, but it's a really fabulous event so encourage you to come.  If you'd like to serve as the host of the event, please let me know.

More info from the website:

Taste of the Nation DC brings together the city’s best chefs, restaurants and mixologists who lend their time and talent to help raise the critical funds necessary to help ensure no kid goes hungry.

    For those who can arrive by 6:45pm, let's meet at the lion statue just outside the Judiciary Square metro stop across the street from the building museum (note, there are two lion statutes. When you exit the metro, go to the statue on the right-so if you are facing the building museum, it's on your right). We'll gather there, and then get in line for tickets (doors for GA don't open til 7pm). If you are going early (6pm) for VIP admission, or if you are arriving late, let's meet up again at 7:30pm at the Subaru car at the Subaru lounge (on the main floor near the entrance, just behind the registration area) So 6:45pm Lion Statute outside the Judiciary Square metro between 4th and 5th (Lion closer to 4th Street) and 7:30pm Subaru Car at the Subaru Lounge.
    I'll try to meet you at both times/places, but because I'm helping to run the event, it's possible I won't be able to meet you. But I know you all will meet up.

    Hi folks – I'm trying to see if I can get us a group of tickets to hand out ahead of time or if you will have to just wait in the regular line and then meet inside. as soon as I figure that out I'll post a place and a time to meet but that won't be til about 3pm

    What's required of hosting? Sounds interesting.

    • Lisa

      Just need someone to set up a meeting place for the event and make sure to meet and assemble the group. Let me know if you'd like to do that. Thanks!

    • Lisa

      Hi Adria--Hosting means you set a place where the group can meet and make sure to meet the group. Not too difficult:) Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!
