More than 500 people showed up for the opening reception of Chef Jeff Black’s Pearl Dive Oyster Palace. The group raised more than $25,000 which will go towards making a special teaching kitchen. The kitchen will be at the Washington Nationals Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s Medical Center. The new restaurant dishes out an average of 4,200 oysters a night! PS… did I mention they have a bocce court in the seafood house.  More photos by Andrew Lightman.

1) Turn off phone and remove battery
2) Dry the phone (inside & out) with clean cloth
3) Check if you have beef jerky or uncooked rice
4) If Beef Jerky take the silica packet and put it in an airtight container with the phone and leave it overnight. If rice, pour the rice inside the airtight container and put your phone in the rice and leave overnight.
