Doi Moi hosts B. Nektar Meadery founder Brad Dahlholfer for a four-course, family-style dinner with mead pairings Tuesday at 6:30 PM. The dinner costs $60, excluding tax and gratuity, and will explore the reasons mead complements Southeast Asian dishes through tastings of B. Nektar’s offerings, such as mango-honey-black-pepper and wildflower mead. Call the restaurant to reserve a spot (1800 14th St. NW; 202-733-5131).


Graffiato hosts its industry takeover night party tonight from 10 PM-1 AM, when a $10 cash cover will get you entry to a party featuring free snacks from local chefs Mike Friedman of The Red Hen and Jeremiah Langhorne, as well as David Varley of RN74 Seattle. Guest mixologist Hung Nguyen of Public and The Daily NYC will also be in the house offering drink specials at the first-floor pizza bar. Half of the proceeds are donated to charity, with this month’s beneficiary is Live to Fight (707 Sixth St. NW; 202-289-3600).


Cedar and We The Eaters present a cocktail hour and three-course seafood dinner Wednesday from 6-9:30 PM accompanied by a talk from fish purveyor ProFish Ltd. about sustainability and sourcing.
