Well, their steamed bao buns, that is. Throughout October – so you have a couple more weeks – Baoery is running a photo contest giving you the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the restaurant. Just take a picture of your bao, post it on Instagram or Facebook, and hashtag it #baodown. Chef Greg Richie will pick a winner every week.

If you ain't got time to be taking pictures of your food, you can still party those buns: Baoery celebrates its 1-year anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 19.  There will be a DJ, "photo opportunities," cocktails, tons of food, and if we know our Richie at all, lots and lots of sake bombs.

Tickets for the bao bash are available here, and ticket price includes the bao station, passed appetizers, two drink tickets and "a couple
fun surprises" (hint: SAKE BOMBS.)
