Les Dames' Garage Sale

Not just any garage sale, but the "Everything But the Kitchen Sink" Garage Sale, and it will take place the last Saturday of the month, January 30. Les Dames d' Escoffier -- which if you don't know is an invitation-only organization of women leaders in the food, beverage, and hospitality industries whose mission is education, advocacy, and philanthropy -- have gathered a whole lotta kitchen equipment for a garage sale that will help provide student scholarships to women seeking careers in the industry.

Items for sale won't be just a bunch of crusty castoffs, but will

include appliances used in test kitchens -- mixers, blenders, food

processors, pans, and bake ware -- plus dishes, wineglasses, kitchen

supplies, and cookbooks. Seriously, it's looking like an ideal

place to pick up that muffin tin you've been dreaming of. Or whatever.


broads -- um, Les Dames -- ask that you come by, strike up a

conversation, and check out the wares. Here's all you need to know:
