The secret to relative sobriety is drinking on a full stomach. Nothing good ever comes of going out and slamming back five glasses of fine wine (classy, right?) without eating something beforehand. Sure, that makes it more difficult to fit into our skinny jeans and look our best at a party, but that’s why God created vests. And Man Spanx.
Plus, looking a little plumper is far better than looking drunk. Falling down stairs or face first into a puddle is not the way to make a grand entrance or exit.
At the upcoming “Burgers & Burgundy” event benefiting DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), we won’t have to worry about PREPARCARLO (Pre-party carb-loading) because there will be plenty of great food to help us soak up some of that delicious wine.
Burgers will be lovingly created by twelve celebrity chefs, including John Tesar (The Mansion on Turtle Creek), Kent Rathbun (Abacus, Jasper’s), hottie Matt McCallister (Stephan Pyles, Samar), Scott Romano (Charlie Palmer) and Brian Luscher (The Grape), just to name a few. The festivities take pace on the rooftop at The House in Victory Park, so there will be great views from every angle, whether you’re looking at the skyline or the gorgeous guests in attendance.
DJs Jennifer Miller and Paul Paredes will be spinning poolside (and we’ll be spinning barside), so everything for a great party is covered: food, wine, music and great people-watching. The event takes place next Friday, October 15, but we recommend getting tickets quickly so we’re giving you plenty of advance notice of this great fall event.
With all the great chefs making these burgers, you can be assured these won’t be your typical sliders and sammies. It’s gourmet all the way, baby. And as you probably know, gourmet food keeps us sober longer than plain-old ordinary food. We think we heard that on Dr. Phil. Or from a Pink Elephant. Hmmm, same diff.
