Beat Bobby Flay Viewing Party at Quality Athletics
Sure, you could watch the Food Network channel at home, but Quality Athletics' own chef de cuisine Daniel Cox will be on an episode airing this very evening so watching it with him and his crew sounds a lot more fun. For $35, eat the very dish Cox cooked to potentially beat Bobby Flay, his steak frites dish of grilled ribeye with bleu cheese and mint chermoula, plus a grilled and pickled peach salad with kale, feta cheese, and warm pancetta vinaigrette.

Food and a Message: A Pop-up Kitchen Benefitting Immigrant and Refugee Cooks
To paraphrase Michael Pollan, the shared meal is less a biologically required action and more a ritual of community. Well, this meal aims to certainly do the latter with a three-course lunch prepared by two chefs, Mai Nguyen, an immigrant from Vietnam, and Inna Stentsenko, a refugee from Ukraine. Together they'll cook food from their respective cultures while community members discuss opportunities they're creating for underprivileged chefs and home cooks. Tickets are $35, and lunch is from noon until 3:30, hosted at Georgetown's Ciudad.
