There’s nothing quite like a “welcome back from the weekend” than a vocabulary lesson to kick off a Monday, right?
lo·ca·vore [loh-kuh-vawr, ‐vohr]
a person who makes an effort to eat food that is grown, raised, or produced locally, usually within 100 miles of home.
So why feature this specific word today? Because the plans are happening for Locavore, a benefit for the National MS Society’s Ohio Buckeye Chapter:
Now in its fourth year, it’s time to join the local chapter of the National MS Society at its annual tasting event on Friday, September 27 starting at 6PM at Windows on the River on the West bank of the Flats.
The Ohio Buckeye Chapter promises that “your senses will be indulged as you sample decadent chocolates and pastries, and delicious hors d’oeuvres from local Cleveland vendors all paired with some of Ohio’s finest wines made from Ohio-grown grapes.” Check out the Flickr set from the 2012 event – everything looks pretty tasty to me!
Participating restaurants include:
- AMP 150
- Cork & Cleaver Social Kitchen
- Jammy Buggars
- Lilly Handmade Chocolates
- Momocho Mod Mex
- Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream
The event will feature wines from:
Throw in a blind wine pull, raffles and silent auction packages – that’s the equation for a well-rounded food and wine event!
You can purchase tickets at the event website. It’s $60 per person for an event ticket which includes all food and drinks provided from the vendors listed above (a cash bar will also available). An $80 per person Patron ticket also includes an exclusive wine tasting with a wine expert.
