In today's Garchick, we learn that Chez Panisse, Berkeley's iconic joint for organic grub, plans on celebrating the big 4-0 in an even bigger way. Behold: "This year's holiday card from 'The Family of Chez Panisse' included a save-the-date note for Aug. 28, for a celebration of the restaurant's 40th anniversary. 'Join us for a procession, a concert, a film, a meal for 5,000 people at the Greek Theatre" (a benefit for the Chez Panisse Foundation).' "
That's a lot of dinner rolls. Save the date, folks.
