Beefcake and steak

Matt BirkRavens center Matt Birk, some unidentified teammates and their "celebrity friends" will play waiter for a night Monday at a $250-a-head, four-course dinner at Morton's The Steakhouse.

The sold-out event will raise money for Birk's HIKE Foundation, which provides at-risk Baltimore-area children with educational opportunities and support. 

I think it could do good for another cause if the players would dress up like Hooters girls. That'd make some of us feel a whole lot better about that lingerie football nonsense.

Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research – never the subject, always the control.

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
