Pastry Gods Descend on DC; Uncle Chip's Quirky Request

CHARITY WIRE—Tomorrow at 7:30 p.m., some big names in pastry from here and afar — such as Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), Lincoln Carson (The Mina Group), Michael Laiskonis (Institute of Culinary Education and formerly Le Bernardin), Matthew Petersen (CityZen), Chris Ford (Wit & Wisdom) and more — are joining together for a dessert reception at the 101 Constitution rooftop to benefit Share Our Strength. Tickets are $125 and get you tastings, access to some of the country's finest chefs, plus booze. [EaterWire]

TRUXTON CIRCLEHere's a fun help wanted ad from Uncle Chip's Cookies requesting someone with "a passion for personal hygiene," "socially acceptable quirkiness" and, yeah, maybe some baking experience to help out at the bakery. Future employees be warned: You won't be allowed to do parkour in the kitchen, but you will be allowed to whistle while you work and make up secret handshakes with customers. [Craigslist]
