You don't have to be as swift as a gazelle to dine at 100 of DC's top restaurants in one evening—you just have to follow your nose to the ZooFari fundraiser at the National Zoo. Attend the three-hour gala on May 17 with a VIP package that includes admission to the LivingSocial Lion Lounge—with specialty cocktails and appearances by celebrity chefs Mike Isabella, Spike Mendelsohn, and Todd Gray—as well as an exclusive after-hours viewing of lions and tigers, a take-home treat, and valet parking ($175).
Set against the Zoo's lush backdrop, this delicious event offers samples from restaurants like Graffiato, Central Michel Richard, BLT Steak, Marcel's, Proof, and Restaurant Eve, as well as local and international vintners like Barrel Oak Winery and J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, plus specialty retailers such as Georgetown Cupcake and Edward Marc Chocolatier. In the exclusive LivingSocial Lion Lounge, decked out like a vintage carnival, you'll find a zydeco band, a photo booth, and "adult" versions of limeade and chocolate milk. Former Top Chef contestants Mike Isabella (Graffiato) and Spike Mendelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery; We, the Pizza) as well as Todd Gray (Equinox, Watershed) will make appearances.
No party is complete without dessert, and Isabella, Gray, and Mendelsohn will close out the evening by judging a pastry competition. The challenge: create the best cake—with a zoo theme, of course. Follow @FONZNationalZoo, #ZooFari
"ZooFari presented by the Friends of the National Zoo just may be the foodie event of the year."
