Sammies, Syrahs & Storm Help Haiti On 1st Thursday

Hand-crafted sammies piled high to the sky, a selection of wine and Storm Large were the main attractions—alongside a boatload of art—at Hands On for Haiti held last night inside a deserted, Pearl District Eddie Bauer store. For only a buck each (and a $15 entry fee) patrons could load up on bite-sized sandwiches from Bunk, Meat Cheese Bread and Kenny and Zuke’s, among others. There was also a wall-o-restaurants where you could bid on gift certificates for such hot spots as Olympic Provisions, Clyde Common and Gruner. Oddly enough the value of the certificate was also the minimum bid. Translated: bidders were paying more for their meals than they were valued at. But, hey, it was all for Mercy Corp. Spotted working the crowded room was Ned Ludd chef/owner Jason French(right) and Andrea Slonecker who was recently named the Executive Director of the Portland Culinary Alliance.
