Camp Promise Brunch: Saturday, August 8
Chris Blanco, currently chef for the Belltown software company TUNE and formerly of New York's Wild Edibles and Centro Vinoteca, is hosting a Southeast Asian-inspired benefit brunch for Camp Promise, an organization that provides weeklong overnight camps for individuals with muscular dystrophy or select neuromuscular diseases. $40 gets you four courses with duck leg banh mi, hot and sour soup with Alaskan sockeye fish balls, black rice pudding, and more. And because it's the weekend, for another $20, throw in bottomless beer and wine. The brunch will kick off at 11 a.m. at TUNE (Suite 100B) and there will be additional seatings at 11:30, noon, 12:30, and 1 p.m. See the full menu and reserve seats through Dyne. Tax and gratuity are not included.
