Over 300 people showed up celebrate the #JC100 @powerHouseArena on August 15, 2012. It may have been thundering and raining right around the 7 pm start time, but that didn’t keep people away. Alyssa Shelasky did a great job handling the MC duties, and our four speakers — Tamar Adler (author of An Everlasting Meal), Dave Crofton (One Girl Cookies), Matt Lewis (Baked), and Deb Perelman (SmittenKitchen.com) — gave wonderful, inspiring tributes to Julia Child.
I’ve storified the evening’s tweets, which probably tell the story best.
Here are some pictures from the event:
