Plus, a high-end James Beard dinner and a Mario Batali cameo.

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

SOUTHWEST— Catch a whole bunch of DC chefs, from Vikram Sunderam to Marjorie Meek-Bradley, in one place Friday. That's the night of the James Beard "Night of Culinary Stars." The event comes at a price — $350 per ticket — and sales benefit the James Beard Foundation. More here. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL— Cheese lovers, head to Sonoma this month. Every weeknight, they're hosting a cheese-centric happy hour, and on the last Thursday of this month, they'll offer a free wine and cheese tasting. [EaterWire]

COMEBACKS— Crumbs Bake Shop is slated to return to the dead this week. Some DC locations will reopen; Eater NY reports they'll also try to cash in on the food mash-up craze with something called a "baissant." [ENY]

PENN QUARTER— Mario Batali fans, here's where to find him on October 26. Zaytinya is hosting a lunch in honor of the celeb chef's new cookbook. It's $95 to attend but those who do get a signed book and Mediterranean food. Here's more info. [EaterWire]
