Daniel Curtis Benefit Update

We are less than 18 hours away from the benefit for Daniel Curtis, our industry friend who suffered a debilitating accident at the beginning of the summer.
Great food from some of the best chefs in town (David Bull, Shawn Cirkiel, Philip Speer, and of course Daniel’s coworker and friend Josh Watkins). Music by the Derailers. Drinks from the Tipsy Texan volunteer corps. Raffle, Live Auction, and Silent Auction, all benefitting an incredible cause. 6:30-9 PM Wednesday at the AT&T Conference Center and Hotel on the UT campus
The response has been immense–over 300 tickets sold, great pouring of support from volunteers and sponsors. Word is Daniel himself will probably be able to make an appearance. I was looking through some old boxes in the office this week and came upon some pictures of myself and Daniel from the late 90s when we worked together at Katz’s.


I definitely can’t wear those pants anymore.


Daniel may actually be this skinny again, according to his rehab blog he’s lost a lot of weight at the hospital. I wish I could bring him a Katz’s reuben to fatten him up but the deli is RIP.
Please be sure to check out the benefit site, even if you can’t attend, contributions of all sizes are welcome.
