How about indulging in a mac and cheese taste test, for a good cause?
This Sunday, December 3, at 6:30 p.m. Union Restaurant hosts a Mac 'n Cheese Cook-Off to benefit FareStart. Sample the cheese-rich creations of Union's Ethan Stowell, Renee Erickson of Boat Street Café, Steve Smrstik of the 35th St. Bistro, and Crave's Robin Leventhal. These are just a few of the local chefs who will dish up their signature noodle casseroles to help raise funds for FareStart, a non-profit organization that trains low income and homeless people with marketable food-service skills.
For $45, you'll sample all kinds of gooey goodness, with a beer or two (or a few) to wash it down. In this season of formal galas, this event has the makings of a sloppy, fun fundraiser.
Union is lcoated downtown at 1400 First Ave.; for more info, call 206-838-8000.
