holy foodie giveaway

Spring (thankfully) brings back a lot of things – including event season. If there’s something you’d like to check out, this just may be your chance. I’ve generously been given several tickets to three of the area’s best spring food-related events. If any of these spark your interest, leave a comment by April 12th at noon telling me which event you’d like to go to (or two of the three or even all three!) and you’ll be entered to win them. There will be three separate drawings for each event via Random.org.

Market Under Glass

This event, now in its 16th year, is the largest fundraiser for Harvest for Hunger. It’s an evening of unlimited food and drinks from some of the area’s best restaurants and purveyors. And you may even see a few familiar faces acting as “celebrity” servers (aka local bloggers). Unfortunately, this is the second year I’ve had to pass due to work conflicts, but I’m hoping I’ll be asked aain next year as I love the idea (hint hint). Participating restaurants include: AMP150, Chinato, Mi Pueblo, Lucky’s, La Bella Cupcakes, Palate, Parallax, Umami Washington Place Bistro & Bar and a slew of others. For more info, head here. The event takes place on April 28 at The Galleria. Up for grabs: two tickets (a $170 value).

Nihonshu Night

Pronounced nee-hon-shoe, Nihonshu means Japanese sake. This special night on April 22 celebrates The Cleveland Museum of Art’s current exhibit, The Lure of Painted Poetry: Japanese and Korean Art. Attendees will taste and learn about three different sakes selected by experts at the Marchetti Company, and indulge in Japanese/Korean fusion food created by Sasa, while Beat Matrix’s Darrell Stout spins ambient, downtempo music. You’ll also have the opportunity to wander through the exhibition galleries and talk with Seunghye Sun, associate curator of Asian art, about her first exhibition at the museum. Tickets are $18 per person and available here. Up for grabs: Two tickets.

Pestival

I attended this fantastic event at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself – and the surroundings. This popular and creative cocktail-style event, which will take place on April 14th, highlights fun cuisine made from garlic mustard, an edible, invasive species pulled from the ground by volunteers and staff each year. It’s part of a growing movement to eat more invasive species, following the motto: If you can’t beat it, eat it! Participating restaurants include The Greenhouse Tavern, Fire, Spice of Life, J Pistone and Sasa. Tickets are $50 each. Up for grabs: Two tickets.

    I’d love to go to Pestival, I love foraging and am always looking for new things to do with the things I find. I hadn’t heard about that yet this year, thanks for the reminder. I’d also like to be entered in the Market Under Glass giveaway. Thanks!

    Ohhhh, my goodness, these all sound fantastic. I’ve helped out at the Pestival in the past, and I can vouch for the fact that it’s worth attending. They’re great folks over at the Nature Center.

    As for me, I can’t choose, so I’d like to throw my hat in the ring for any of them!

    I would love to go the Market Under Glass event–hunger, especially child hunger, is one of the most tragic consequences of the growing disparity between rich and poor, so I love what Harvest for Hunger does.

    Would also love to go to Pestival. Shaker Lakes Nature Center is a hidden gem in the middle of the city–a great resource and green space!
