Dinner with a bear, a silver fox and a noisy Spaniard sounds like the punchline to a good joke. But if you happen to have nine friends with more than a thousand bucks to burn or have a really awesome sugar daddy, you can bid on a private dinner for 10 with Chefs Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert and Jose Andres on November 10. Bidding on eBay starts at $10,000 — or you can “Buy it Now” for $25,000.
The full package includes:
- Private menu consultation with Chef Ripert prior to VIP family-style dinner. (Though we know some of you ladies will view this as seduction time.)
- Three-course dinner and wine pairing for up to 10 guests in The Ritz-Carlton Suite with Eric Ripert, Tom Colicchio and Jose Andres.
- Minimum donation of $8,000 to DC Central Kitchen.
- Valet parking for all guests and 10 VIP tickets to DC Central Kitchen’s Capital Food Fight on November 11, 2010.
But if this is all too garish for you, you can still see all three chefs in-person at the Capital Food Fight, where tickets are only $200 per person. Sounds like a comparative bargain, doesn’t it?
