market under glass ticket giveaway

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

if you know anything about me or my blog you know that i simply LOVE food, and if you don't believe me all you have to do is look at my butt for proof.
so when i was approached by the Cleveland Foodbank, a local nonprofit that does amazing things for our community to be a "celebrity server" for their premier event of the year, Market Under Glass, i did two things:
1) laughed at the idea of being a "celebrity server" then immediately wondered how this "celebrity server" titled could benefit me street cred, i.e. would cute boys think i'm cooler? once i realized that probably wasn't the case i thought... 
2) hey, at least there will be good food at the event, tons of people and it's all for a good cause. sign me up.
Market Under Glass will take place thursday, april 22nd from 6 to 9pm at the Galleria at Erieview. the event benefits the annual Harvest for Hunger campaign, a 21 county food and funds drive coordinated by the Cleveland Foodbank.
over 1,200 guests will spend the evening tasting delicious food, wine and beer from more than 50 cleveland area restaurants like AMP150, Great Lakes Brewing Company, L'albatros, Bar Cento and Shinto, as well as various beverage purveyors.
pre-sale general admission tickets can be purchased online HERE for $85 which entitles you to unlimited food and drinks - there is a $150 VIP ticket option too, including a VIP suite and an after party. tickets are $100 at the door the day of the event.
so who wants to go to Market Under Glass with me?
leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite restaurant in cleveland for your chance to win two (2) tickets to Market Under Glass on thursday, april 22nd - a $200 value!
i'll choose the winner next wednesday april 7th so go 'head and get your comment on.
good luck kids.

  8. I can't afford to eat at many of the fancy restaurants other people are naming here, but when I lived in University Circle, I went to Valentino's Pizza so much that they knew my order when I called up and said, "Hi, it's Rob." Such good pizza!

  11. Wow, tough call. Depends on what I'm in the mood for. Rather than list out all 15 I guess I'll just say Lola.

  12. i don't live in cleveland, but my aunt and uncle do so if i win i'm giving them the tix :)

  13. This is so hard. I love so many places. But if you twisted my arm, I would have to say Lolita.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You could take me to Lola anytime and I would be thrilled!

  15. Melt! Although that's in Lakewood, so I guess I'll go with Crop Bistro. Mmmm...Sunday supper...

  16. That's a difficult question, and my answer tends to change depending on my mood.

    Right now, I'm really craving Momocho after seeing Chef Eric on DDD. That restaurant has to be at the top of my list. I always over eat there, because there are so many things I want to taste. Who knew corn on the cob could be so addicting?

    We're headed to Crostatas for pizza tonight- another favorite in a totally different category!

    I'm so thankful for the local chefs. There was a time when this question was much easier to answer, because the options were more limited!

  17. Favorites close to home are Lopez on Lee and Pearl of the Orient. Favorite downtown is Lola... which reminds me of B-spot, mmm, and yes Crostatas, yum. And far from home but man is it worth the drive is Fatheads. Must. Stop. Swimsuit season aproaching!

  18. that sounds like so much fun, and for such a great cause!

    i wish i was going to be in cleveland to join you!

  19. Momocho. I even made it on the episode of Diners Drive In's & Dive's.

    I've been eating machaca (and craving it) for 4 years.

  20. (don't enter me! darn dc)

    just wanted to say WOW HOW COOL that you're a celeb server!

  21. My favorite is Parallax, with L'Albatros coming in a close second. Apparently anything with Zach Bruell behind it..

    Awesome about being a celebrity server!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is an impossible decision! I am going to choose 3 Birds in RR/Lakewood border because I have been craving their lobster pizza!

    ReplyDelete
  23. i can't pick just one. but if i had to. i would say tremont tap house has the best perogies EVER!

    ReplyDelete

    2. Prosoerity Social Club (Tremont) Best Carnival Fries Ever!

    Have fun serving!!
