Spike Mendelsohn to Host Inaugural Burger Ball

At Spike’s party, blue jeans are “highly recommended.”

Top Chef/inauguration junkies rejoice! Season four contestant Spike Mendelsohn announced yesterday that he'll host an inaugural ball at his Capitol Hill hamburger joint Good Stuff Eatery on January 20. The theme, of course, is burgers.

For $99, you can party with the chef on while you nosh eight handcrafted mini burgers, mini hand-cut French fries, mini milkshakes, and salads. Beer and wine is included, and there will be vegetarian options available.

Before you run out to buy a gown or rent a tux for the occasion, note the dress code: blue jeans are "highly recommended." According to the invitation, Mendelsohn's looking to attract a "hip crowd," and he'll transform his restaurant into "a candlelit farmhouse chic atmosphere" where "people can jam to some awesome music."

Only 200 tickets are available, and they're expected to go fast. To purchase, call Micheline at 202-543-8222 or e-mail
