WEST END—It's just about time again for the Park Hyatt's seasonal Masters of Food and Wine event. In a series of events scheduled for March 24, they're going to have a cherry blossom cooking class with pastry chef Peter Brett, a lesson in making tea with Garret Chan of Tealeaves and, finally, a four-course lamb dinner with Blue Duck Tavern executive chef Sebastien Archambault. Reservations range from $45 to $145 and can be made by calling 202-419-6768. [EaterWire]

THE CRITICS—Following up on the viral sensation that is Marilyn Hagerty, North Dakota restaurant critic now famous for reviewing the Olive Garden, Northern Virginia magazine critic Stefanie Gans takes the opportunity to ponder whether she, too, should be reviewing chain restaurants. [NVM]

MT. PLEASANT—Listen up, math nerds and people who just like pie. Wednesday is March 14, which means it is Pi Day as in the mathematical 3.14. But it is also for celebrating pies. And so on Wednesday evening there will be a Pi(e) Day benefit event at the St. Stephen's Church in Mt. Pleasant beginning at 6 p.m. For a $5 donation, you will get all-you-can-eat sweet and savory pie, the chance to win a pie in a Pi(e) Walk and plenty of "live old-time music" in your ears. It's a benefit for Radio CPR. [EaterWire]
