Urbana offering Free Lunch on April 1

Eventually places will realize that April 1 is more than just the beginning of a prime Spring month and catch on to the natural skepticism surrounding April Fools Day, but until then Urbana’s taking advantage of it…

Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar (2121 P Street NW, in the Hotel Palomar) presents their “Only Fools Fall In Love” lunch giveaway for the first 300 customers starting at 11:30 on April 1st. The free bagged lunch includes their new pulled pork parmesan sandwich made with braised pork shoulder, bolognese sauce, mozzarella, and radicchio. Comes with a pickle, chocolate chip cookie, and bottled water.

I don’t work near enough to take advantage of this, and I don’t know if they take lunch reservations, but this may be a line-up, first-served type of deal. Still, it looks to be in the high 70s tomorrow which makes for a perfect day to take your lunch outside!

Bake Sale for Haiti

It’s that time again! The DC Food Bloggers are bringing their yummy wares to you for a bake sale. All the proceeds from this bake sale will go towards Doctors Without Borders’ relief efforts in Haiti.

We will be selling our wares on Sunday, March 28th from 9-11am on the patio at Zorba’s Cafe. It’s just two blocks north of the Dupont Circle metro exit (Q St) and one block north of the Dupont Circle Farmers’ Market.

The market opens at 10, so why not stop by and see us before your Sunday morning shopping? You can pick up something to go with your morning Starbucks and tuck away a few more goodies for later! It should be a lovely morning and you’ll get to meet some of your favorite food bloggers–it’s ok, I won’t be jealous if I’m not one of them. Our last bake sale had a great turn out (and sell out!) and we’d love to see you again. And to let you in on a little secret: having access to food bloggers with a nearby farmers’ market is a great way to get helpful tips and ideas for your meals and answers to your food questions and/or dilemmas.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Adventures in Shaw, Thrifty DC Cook, Not Derby Pie or One Bite At A Time. We need everything from bakers to sellers, set up & clean up.

Even if you’re not baking-inclined, we can still use your reach. Please feel free to grab a copy of the flyer and post it on your own blog or Facebook page. Print it out and hang it up at your office, e-mail your friends with a sweet-tooth and let them know about it. Since we’re only going to have around a 2-hour window this time around, the more people we can let know about it, the better.

I hope you’ll come out to see us on the 28th. There’s going to be some great eats for a great cause.
