Great Event for a Great Cause!

If you are a regular reader you probably already know how much we love the B&O Brasserie, located in downtown Baltimore, at the fabulous Hotel Monaco. We blogged about it when it first opened, we live-Tweeted their spring menu, and we send anyone and everyone looking for a great meal or cocktail straight to B&O!

And now, we're urging all of you to attend their First Annual Crab Bash. It's summertime in Maryland, after all! This event, to celebrate the restaurant's first anniversary, will take place on Tuesday, August 3rd, at 5:30pm. Seven chefs from around the region will battle to see who has the best crab dish. Guests pay a $10 admission and get the privilege of tasting the competing dishes, enjoying a complimentary cocktail, and watching the battle! Also, guests are entered into a raffle for sweet prizes such as an overnight stay at the Hotel Monaco. The warm fuzzies you get from knowing that your $10 goes to support an awesome cause, The Great Kids Farm, are absolutely free.

More details below, including how to buy tickets. We'll be at the Bash and hope you will, too!

(Baltimore) – It’s a fight to the death! Ok, not exactly, but it’s still going to be a good fight.

The crab dishes will be judged by attendees and a panel of local celebrity judges including Baltimore magazine’s Suzanne Loudermilk, Mix 106.5’s Reagan Warfield, and national food blogger Dara Bunjon.

For an admissions fee of $10, all of which will benefit the Great Kids Farm, guests are invited to watch the chefs battle it out, sample the chefs’ dishes and enjoy a complimentary cocktail created for the anniversary by Head Bartender Brendan Dorr. Attendees will also be entered into a raffle for a one-night stay at the Hotel Monaco and a gift certificate for dinner for two, a $100 value, at B&O American Brasserie.
