Cyclone Anaya is holding a fund-raiser dinner 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. today at the Prestonwood location (5225 Beltline Rd.) to help send the Turtle Creek Chorale to Spain in July. Chorale members in their performance attire will be on hand for photo opportunities.

Scott Gottlich (Bijoux, The Second Floor) will be the featured chef at the James Beard House in New York Thursday, along with his executive chef J Chastain and his sommelier and wife Gina. Gottlich will prepare signature dishes from both of his restaurants in an event called Best of Dallas. Hmm ... Why does that term sound familiar? Anyway, you may want to pass on both restaurants until the chefs return.
