Celebrity chef Kerry Simon opened the doors to his new restaurant, KGB at Harrah’s Vegas, to host a charity event in support of Restaurant Week and nonprofit Three Square, a Las Vegas food bank.

Chef Kerry Simon with friends Nalya and Laura. Laura is from Lithuania, wherever that might be. We are a Las Vegas blog, not an atlas, assuming those still exist.

The lively evening (Sep. 1) featured Kerry’s signature dishes, including the our-now-favorite “Iron Chef” sliders, as well as any number of flavorful takes on classic treats like shakes, cupcakes, carmel corn and even cotton candy.

When indulging in "Iron Chef" sliders, try to keep it under 14 or so. Key word: try.

Those in attendance donated a minimum of $20 to Three Square to take part in the gathering. Additional donations were raised through a raffle, with prizes from cool donors like Stoli, AEG Live, Macallan, Amstel Light, Cointreau, Terlato Wines International and others.

The benefit raised enough money to provide more than 2,300 meals to those in need.

If we ever sell this martini photo to a stock photography agency, we will donate the proceeds to Three Square. Promise.

A team of Stoli girls (their term, not ours!) made guests feel welcome with vodka martinis and shots of something so strong we think we took several years off our lives. We mean, had we tried the shots, they would probably have been strong. Which we didn’t. Probably.

"Stoli Girl" Julie delivers some love, in the form of vodka, to the crowd.

Chef Simon mingled with guests in attendance and took part in the raffle, giving away goodies like a $600 bottle of scotch, which this blog did not win, yet we in no way feel bitter. For the most part.

But enough about that. Back to the KGB desserts!

Temptations galore. We resisted. For, oh, six seconds.

Restaurant Week runs through Sep. 5. See the list of all the participating restaurants (80 in all) around Vegas for tons of dining values, all for a great cause.

“Help out by dining out,” as Three Square says.

See all the cupcake jokes we're not making? Thanks for your patience with us, Alexandra.

Here’s a peek at all the for-a-good-cause revelry at KGB.
