Cleveland Foodbank Taste of the Browns

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Are you ready for some Browns football?

I sure as heck am - bring on the tailgating, beers, hot dogs and hopefully lots of wins.


Let's bring on the Taste of the Browns too!


The 13th Annual
Cleveland Foodbank Taste of the Browns event is taking place Monday, September 12 at Cleveland Browns Stadium in the City View Lounge from 6 to 9pm.


Last year was my first time attending this party with a purpose and I was beyond impressed with the quality of restaurants/food and the sheer excitement of seeing so many professional Cleveland athletes - like last year Muffin and I got a picture with Mo Williams.

Awesome, right?

What else is awesome is that by attending the event you'll be helping to support the Cleveland Foodbank who for every single dollar received through donations (of any kind) can provide enough food for four nutritious meals.


Tickets for the event are $150 but because you're a reader of Cleveland's a Plum you can purchase your tickets for only $125 using the promo code TasteofPlum ONLINE HERE. (code valid until 8/30)

You can also win a pair of general admission tickets here on the plum.


There's multiple ways to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post telling me which participating restaurant you're most excited to try if you win
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling me what you think the Browns record will be this season
  3. Share the following update on twitter, daily for more entries, "Check out @clevelandsaplum's Taste of the Browns ticket giveaway http://bit.ly/qXQjX9" and leave a comment telling me you did so
  4. Share this giveaway on Facebook and leave a comment telling me you did so
Enter one way, all four, or even tweet daily - but you must leave separate comments for additional entries and don't forget your contact information if I don't already have it.

You have until end of day Monday (8/29) to enter and I'll announce the winner next Tuesday morning (8/30) which will still give you a day to purchase your discounted tickets online.


Good luck everyone!!


Disclosure: I was provided one general admission ticket to the Taste of the Browns event and two tickets to giveaway in return for posting about the event and hosting this contest.

  1. ooo Momocho. i haven't had a bad meal there yet...

    i haven't hit up all of zach bruell's places either, so that sounds rather enticing as well.

  7. Momocho for sure but I had a squid dish that Zach Bruell made for the 2010 Silver Spoons that I still dream about, so maybe he can recreate that one just for me? Zach...what do ya say?
