Celebrate the launch of Lauren DeSantis’s first cookbook! Lauren stars in her own TV cooking show Capital Cooking, and writes a blog by the same name. She also lives in the Union Row condos at 14th and V and is hosting the launch party for her cookbook there. The event is free, from 7-9:30 and will have a ton of good food to eat and wine to drink. If you are going to attend, you should RSVP to capitalcookingpress@gmail.com. I’ll be there for the VIP press hour and for the party afterward – see you there!

Deals for Deeds, launching Wednesday!

Have you heard of Deals for Deeds? It’s a brand new group buying website, similar to Groupon, that supports community non-profits. They offer one huge daily deal and donate a large portion (at least 5%) of every deal to one of three local non-profits that rotate on a regular basis.

The site will officially launch Wednesday April 28th. Come to their launch party tomorrow, Tuesday April 27th at ACKC (at 14th and Q) from 6-8pm. It promises to be a good time, and free drinks and food will be provided. Celebrate a great new business venture and sign up for their daily emails!
