Rosettas for Relief

Last night we went to Erin Meister’s smashingly successful Rosettas for Relief (hosted by the Amateur Gourmet), a latte art throwdown to benefit the recent victims in Malaysia and China. The event ended up raising $700! Go Meister!

It was a lot of fun, and there were tons of people there! It was kind of overwhelming. There were lots of people there I really like to see, so that was exciting. But what we really wanted to see were some of those lattes!

Did I mention there was free beer? We drank a lot of beer last night. Last night we learned that Bud Light tastes like freezer burn, it was very enlightening. This is Ally from Gimme showcasing her beer:

Anne’s working on a 270 degree (not temperature) latte, but this one here ended up winning

Dan Griffin wins! For winning, Dan received a $300 gift certificate for Eleven Madison Park, which he is going to use to take us out to dinner. Go Dan! Dan may have won, but look at Amber Sather, who is positively adorable in this picture:
