Ever since I moved to Washington, DC, in 2010, the Peacock Café in Georgetown has been very supportive of me and all of my photography projects, including Shoot for Change and Fashiontographer. They were the ones to host my first photo exhibit in Washington, DC in June 2010 and since then, they have either directly referred me to their friends and customers, generously hosted several of my events, or have actively sold the photos I’ve displayed in their restaurant. Nothing short of remarkable, the Peacock Café has helped Shoot for Change raise over $20,000 for various nonprofit organizations. And that doesn’t even count all the other donations and support they have given to others.
When I pitched the Mad Men event to the Peacock Café, Chef Maziar instantly thought of some food ideas to serve and they were simply fabulous. I “had to” take photographs for marketing purposes and the “toughest” part was having to eat them afterwards. They were so enjoyable and so many people raved about the food that now they might have to add a few more items to their original menu.
It’s not really a surprise that the dinner event was successful. When it comes to events, food, and hospitality, you can never go wrong with the Peacock Café. Shahab Farivar and Maziar Farivar are both truly one of a kind. I’m sure that I speak for everyone who has ever visited them when I say that Washington, DC is lucky to have them.
