Tonight: Celebrity Bartender Series at R2L

As part of R2L’s Celebrity Bartender series District Attorney Seth Williams will be taking the stand – er, bar – tonight and serving up cocktails from 6-8pm with $1 from each drink going to his charity of choice, the Pet Support Phashion Charity Affair. And tonight only, chef Daniel Stern will be serving up the DA Burger (pictured above) in honor of Williams, which will feature LaFrieda beef, grilled bacon and salami, Gruyere cheese, french fries, collard slaw, heirloom tomato, caramelized onion and R2L’s special sauce.

Each burger is $22 which, yes, is pretty damn pricey, but $5 from each burger sold goes toward the PSPCA. So you can feel good about helping animals while eating at least two of them.

This series, which has recently featured “Philebrities” like Stan Hochman of the Daily News, radio personality Howard Eskin, and Eagles defensive end Darryl Tapp, is set to occur Tuesday and Wednesday nights this summer with more celebrities to come. Stop by throughout the summer to see your favorite local celebs behind the bar for charity.

    Nothing like C list “celebrities” and La Frieda beef to get me excited.

    Amazing

    I hope District Attorney Seth Williams is a better bartender than DA. He prosecutes when he should not and runs away scared from any cases that would require an ounce of intelligence and legal skills.

    Why are proceeds of the burger going to PSPCA when they were kicked out of the city because of their poor treatment and neglect of animals? I was going to go until I saw this.
