"Chez Panisse‘s 40th birthday extravaganza will take place on the weekend of August 26. With the goal of raising funds and awareness for the Edible Schoolyard program, now in its 15th year, Alice Waters and friends are holding a bunch of events throughout the weekend. Nearly all are open to the public. Some are free, some are not. The full schedule is online, and the Cliff’s Notes version was shared in the print edition, with two big highlights being the Smithsonian’s unveiling of Waters’ portrait for the National Portrait Gallery (a.k.a. recognition as a national treasure!) on Friday, August 26,
