This week's tablehopper: sweet heat.

Hiya. Tremendous thanks to everyone who attended the tablehopper Indian brunch on Saturday at the stylish Rooh! It was such a beautiful brunch (have you been yet?), and the No. 3 London Dry Gin cocktails were all beyond fantastic—it was tough to pick a favorite. That bar does such a great job!

You can scroll through some pics on Instagram here, thanks for coming out—such a fun group. I was especially happy to have my family there. Oh, and chef Sujan is going to be collaborating on a dinner at La Mar this Thursday September 28th!

So, coming up next is my first tablehopper East Bay event, next Friday October 6th (6pm-9pm)! I’m cohosting the opening party for the upcoming Donato & Co., and it’s going to be an apericena feast! Read all about it in today’s tablehopper—tickets are moving fast (they are crazy cheap, just $45, and it includes three cocktails/wine!) so don’t delay. Looking forward to hanging out with you.

There are a lot of events going on this coming week, from Mexico fundraisers (please show some support!) to the Tastemaker Collective international chef dinners, including a big party this Saturday evening. (Don’t forget tablehopper readers get a nice discount—read my post for more!)

I also have a tablehopper fundraiser for Mexico in the works for October. As soon as the date and details are finalized, I will let you know! I’m going to need volunteers, food and drink donations, and of course, dear people to buy tickets. Things are already happening and it’s looking great. Thanks everyone. You’re amazing.

Enjoy the beautiful weather this week. I know already I’m playing hooky and going to the beach tomorrow—I’ve been tracking the weather all week and made sure to get my work done ahead of time. Boss of me said go for it. I hope yours does too.

Cheers gang.
