Senegalese Summer at Le Grand Dakar

Le Grand Dakar chef Pierre Thiam is getting all sorts of acclaim these days - in addition his cookbook, he's making an appearance on Iron Chef America opposite Bobby Flay! In celebration, Le Grand Dakar is throwing a celebration on Thursday, June 24.  Attendees will enjoy unlimited food/sangria and live Afrobeat music, including Jojo Kuo's band (he's a Cameroonian drummer who recorded with Fela back in the day).  Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.  Sounds like a good way to spend a summer evening, and support a local business on Grand Avenue.
