$1 million raised for Alex's Lemonade Stand

Daniel Stern of R2L
Alex's Lemonade Stand, which benefits pediatric cancer, raised $1 million dollars at the Great Chef's event on Tuesday night at the Urban Outfitter's offices in the Naval Yard. Alexandra Scott, who later died of cancer started the charity with one lemonade stand when she was four years old. Credit for the success of the event should go to Alex's parents, Liz and Jay Scott, and chef Marc Vetri and his business partner Jeff Benjamin.

Alcohol was the star this year. The bartenders outdid themselves with creative concoctions.

Everything else was a disappointment. Call me a food snob, but Shake Shack does not belong at a Great Chef's event. The tiny portions and wooden forks made it difficult to enjoy the food. There was an hour wait to get your car at the end of the night.

Enjoy the pictures.

Jose Garces, the fiery Spanish chef. Have you ever seen a Jose that is not sexy?

It was fun to see the chefs.

Some people asked me why it is still called the Naval Yard.
