win a pair of tickets to nihonshu night at the cleveland museum of art

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I'm excited to cross another item off my "Ten things in Cleveland I still need to do to consider myself a true Clevelander list" next Friday by attending the Cleveland Museum of Art.

The fact that I've never been to the Cleveland Museum of Art is probably the item on the list that I'm most embarrassed about.


(hangs head in shame)


But upon hearing about Nihonshu Night (
nee-hon-shoe meaning Japanese sake), an event next Friday at CMA pairing young professionals, art, sake, and food I couldn't mark the event down on my calendar fast enough.


Nihonshu Night Details:


what:
a young professionals event that celebrates the current exhibition, The Lure of Painted Poetry: Japanese and Korean Art

when: Friday, April 22nd from 5 to 8:30pm

where: The Cleveland Museum of Art

why: Attendees can taste and learn about three different sakes selected by the experts at the Marchetti Company and indulge in Japanese/Korean fusion food samples created exclusively for the event by SASA, while Beat Matrix's Darrell Stout spins and one has the opportunity to talk with Seunghye Sun the associate curator of Asian art.

how:
You can purchase tickets online for $18 a piece or win a pair from me
!

That's right ladies and gentleman I'm giving away two tickets to Nihonshu Night to enter simply leave a comment on this post. For any extra entry tweet about this giveaway leaving another comment telling me you did so.

You have until Monday night to enter as I'll be announcing the winner a week from today on April 19th.


Here's to filling our lives with arts and culture in Cleveland, cheers.

Good luck to all who enter!

  8. Promise me that either before or directly after this event, you will go to the museum by yourself one day in the middle of the afternoon, and walk around quietly on your own, when there's not that many people around. Because THAT is a quintessential Cleveland experience.

  9. I love SASA, so thats my main reason for entering to win this, but I also like to pretend that I'm cultured sometimes, and look at art.

  10. You will love the Museum! I have to agree with Bridget, your next experience should be alone on a quiet afternoon so you can really soak up the beauty and identify those that truly move you! Enjoy! :)

  23. I'd love to go! The CMA is an awesome experience that so many Clevelanders don't enjoy enough. And, it will be even better once the renovation is complete in 2012!

    Side note: SASA is absolutely incredible!!! Definitely went there for Valentine's Day with my best girl friends :)

  24. This sounds so fun! You know how I love Japan! The member events are usually pretty pricey for exhibit openings, so it's nice to hear that there's a less-expensive option.
