At the end of May, the Carillon's assistant director of food & beverage Daniel Curtis suffered a severe spinal injury, and now his pals in the restaurant industry are throwing a fundraiser July 13 trying to help him foot the bill of his rehab.
And by "pals" we mean some of the biggest names in Austin restaurants: Josh Watkins. David Bull. Shawn Cirkiel. Shane Stark. Philip Speer. Paul Qui. (Which doesn't quite gel with the whole going away to be on Top Chef for six weeks theory.) Drinks from the Tipsy Texan. There will also be music and a silent auction.
Their goal is to raise $45,000; tickets are $75 or $125 (for VIP). They're also taking donations.
