Track 7 to host benefit tonight for The Met Sacramento High School’s culinary program

Published: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013 - 3:33 pm

Just got off an impromptu conference call with Craig Haarmeyer of Revolution Wines and Andrew Blaskovich, the food truck figurehead behind Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen. They wanted to spread the word about a special event taking place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight at Track 7 Brewing Co. in Curtis Park which includes an appearance by Drewski’s.

Tonight’s benefit at Track 7 will raise money for a new culinary program coming to The Met Sacramento High School, the downtown Sacramento charter school. Proceeds from beer sales and Drewski’s foods will go towards purchasing kitchen equipment and other goods for The Met.

This initiative stems from a senior project at The Met undertaken by Haarmeyer’s daughter, which also includes developing a curriculum for the new culinary program. She’ll receive some mentoring on developing these academic strategies by Teresa Urkofsky of American River College’s culinary arts program.

Patrons are also welcome to donate restaurant quality supplies for The Met, including pots, pans and other kitchen tools.

Also, look for Blaskovich to debut a new sandwich tonight called The Beemer. This mouthful of a grilled sandwich features pastrami and a sesame-soy mustard sauce nestled inside a Bavarian pretzel roll from Ettore’s.

“The sauce is similar to the mustard sauce at Benihana‘s,” said Blaskovich. “It’s the bomb diggity.”
