Daniel Stern is workin' on the railroad

Daniel Stern (MidAtlantic, R2L) will spend Friday and Saturday night cooking in the galley of the Patrón Tequila Epicurean Express, a train that will be parked at 30th Street Station.

It's a fund-raiser for St. Bernard Project, which 2008 CNN Hero Liz McCartney founded to help the people of St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans after Katrina.

Goal is $75,000 to rebuild the houses of three fishermen, and to provide 375 additional hours of mental health services to fishermen and their families.

Tonight is a $50-a-head cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception from 6:30 to 9.

Saturday  is a $250-a-person five-course dinner with cocktail pairings from 7 to 10 p.m. There's a max of 25 people for the dinner, as it's served onboard the train.
