Kimpton Hotels Hosts "The Garden Party" at Poste This Wednesday

Kimpton Hotels Hosts "The Garden Party" at Poste This Wednesday

The cocktail benefit will be held at Poste Moderne Brasserie's newly expanded "Garden" - the popular outdoor courtyard, tucked away behind
the bustling restaurant.

The event will support The Trust for Public Land (TPL), the only national nonprofit dedicated to conserving land for public recreation and
enjoyment, including over 100,000 acres in the Chesapeake Region alone.

Guests will be treated to tastes from Chef Robert Weland's newly launched Garden Menu, which features simple, casual fare using organic and sustainable ingredients. At the Garden Party, guests will be invited to tour Chef's outdoor garden filled with organic herbs and vegetables as well as a 'tomato forest' of in-season heirloom tomato plants.

To complement the fresh garden fare, Poste's award-winning mixologist Rico Wisner will shake up eco-chic liquid libations featuring Square One™ Organic Vodka. The specialty cocktails will be offered at happy hour prices ($5), and all proceeds will be donated to TPL.

Guests can bid on the chance auction to win a variety of green-themed prizes including weekend getaways at Kimpton's eco-friendly hotels.

Admittance fee includes tickets for two complimentary cocktails and Garden hors d'oeuvres. All proceeds from admission fees, specialty drinks and auction items will go directly to The Trust for Public Land.

$10 per person admittance fee.

555 8th Street, NW.
