East West Eats Event + Discount Tickets
The last few years I have been an honorary board member for the Asian American Journalists Association East West Eats event. This is a fantastic event with a silent auction, always great food and cooking demos. This year Chef Martin Yan will be providing cooking demonstrations and you can dine on cuisine from some amazing restaurants including Betelnut, Butterfly, Crustacean, Hilton San Francisco, Le Colonial, Living Room Events, Maharani, Namu, Napa Silverado, Poleng Lounge, Ponzu, Shanghai 1930, Slanted Door and Urban Tavern. Beverages will be provided by Chang Beer, Ku Day Ta Tea Lounge, New Zealand Winegrowers and Vitamin Water.
I donated a bunch of cookbooks and edible goodies to the silent auction, and you'll also find original photography, gift certificates, and more. All the proceeds help support student journalism scholarships. As part of its commitment to promoting diversity in newsrooms, AAJA SF awards up to $15,000 a year in scholarships to deserving students interested in pursuing journalism careers.
East West Eats will be held at the San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center Green Room, 401 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco on Sunday the 14th starting at 6 pm. In previous years tickets have been $100 but this year the price is much less. Tomorrow is the last day for discount tickets to this event! $75 per ticket or $85 after tomorrow. I hope to see you there.
