Dorjee Momo Pop-Up Launch
Who: Dorjee Momo
What: Dorjee Momo is creating a more permanent home for Tibetan fare in DC with the opening of its residency in Bullfrog Bagels Eastern Market beginning January 27. This follows six months of private home dinners, events like Emporiyum and Illuminasia Festival, pop-ups at Thip Khao and Sally’s Middle Name, and lunch service at Dupont Circle’s Shop Made In DC.“I am so excited to share the foods that I learned to make as a child in Tibet, and to play with the flavors and ingredients from places I have traveled to,” says Chef Dorjee Tsering. “When I cook with my team here, it gives me the feeling that I’m back with my family.”A former Buddhist monk and Tibetan refugee, Dorjee has lived in Tibet, China, Nepal, and India. He spent years cooking across those countries and creating his own memories of flavors that are so often nostalgic for many. A few years after arriving in DC, he started Dorjee Momo out of Union Kitchen with his wife and business partner Amberjade Tsering. Those travels mean that the menu, divided into sha (meat) and tsai (plant-based) includes more than momo (dumplings): guests will enjoy Thentuk (Tibetan hand-pulled noodle soup), Shapta (savory marinated beef with green onion and ginger), Indian-inspired plates like Masroor Daal and Jeera Rice, and Nepalese specialties like roasted seasonal vegetables with Nimbu Achar (sun fermented fragrant lemon).Perhaps most exciting for DC residents who habitually visit the surrounding suburbs for their favorite foods: Dorjee Momo will offer Sichuan Hot Pot, becoming the only district restaurant to do so. Those flavors include spices like star anise, cloves, lemongrass, ginger, and cippolini onions. Paired with Tibetan tea service, or cocktails from Big Bear Cafe’s Jim Coleman and Thip Khao’s Jack Caminos, dining at Dorjee Momo will simultaneously be an opportunity to enjoy underrepresented cuisines in a comfortable and intimate setting. The cozy second floor of Bullfrog Bagels provides just that with 22 seats (plus five at the bar). The space will undergo a daily transformation before dinner service.“Eastern Market is a special neighborhood for us because the area has a strong sense of community, and neighbors are very active in supporting local businesses,” says Amberjade. “We want to create an experience where our guests feel welcomed and connected, so they can relax and form deeper relationships with each other over a meal. I hope that our guests feel it is a warm and comforting place of refuge from their hectic days.”DETAILS: This residency will run through summer 2018 and potentially beyond. Meat and plant-based dishes are priced from $7 to $18 each. Hot pot starts at $35 per person. Cocktails range from $9 to $14. Select menu items will be available on UberEats.

State of Advocacy Forum
Who: Rebecca Adams, Brian Bowden & Caitlin Demchuk
What: The Year of Advocacy: Are you ready?2018 is shaping up to be a year in advocacy like no other.All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. As will 39 state and territorial governor races, as well as numerous other state and local elections and four special elections.That means the pressure on incumbent and potential lawmakers to declare positions on multiple issues will be immense, and will inevitably lead to potentially months of advocacy work for organizations leading up to Tuesday, November 6.In preparation for that, CQ, GSPM, and GPN will host a special, double panel workshop exploring the year of advocacy ahead on January 31st.We’ll feature experts in grassroots, advocacy and government relations discussing what to expect in this year of advocacy and what you need to be doing to get off to a flying start.***Complimentary Lunch will be provided courtesy of CQ Roll Call***Panel 1: Overall Advocacy 2018 Outlook 11am-Noon This discussion will feature panelists from a wide array of issues areas to discuss pertinent topics effecting grassroots organizing and advocacy communications.Moderator: TBA Brian Turmail, VP, Public Affairs & Strategic Initiatives at the Associated General Contractors of AmericaLunch Break Noon-12:30pmPanel 2: Advocacy Issue Area Focused: Healthcare 12:30pm-1:30pmAccording to exit polls in the Virginia governor election last November, 78 percent of those who chose Ralph Northam said they did so because he supported expanding Medicaid.That’s just one indication, in a sea of plenty, showing the pivotal role of healthcare in the 2018 midterms.For legislators, whether incumbents or those looking to get elected, healthcare will be one of the biggest single issues on the table this year. What does that all mean for advocacy and policy folks who need to make sure their message is heard loud and clear on the campaign circuit? We’ve assembled an expert government relations panel from the healthcare space to share their insights and experience on what’s set to be a roller coaster ride in healthcare advocacy this year.
