Ava Gene's Beard Market Benefit; Txotx at Bar Vivant

DIVISION/CLINTON— Fundraising efforts for the long-stewing James Beard Public Market continue, this time with a benefit meal at Ava Gene's: The buzzy restaurant will host a multi0course "midday meal" on Sunday, June 29, with chef Joshua McFadden spontaneously designing the menu based on what's available at the farmer's market the day before. Reservations are $150 per person (including all food and wine pairings); more information here. [EaterWire]

E. BURNSIDE— The cider enthusiasts at Bar Vivant will celebrate the traditional Basque ritual "Txotx" this Sunday, June 29, during which a barrel of cider is festively tapped by allowing guests to catch the boozy stream in their glasses. Bar Vivant's party-thrower Cheryl Wakerhauser will team with Finnegan Cider for the event; the $20 entry fee includes "copious amounts" of catch-your-own cider, plus one tapas item from the menu. More information here. [EaterWire]
