Taste of the Browns 2012

Thursday, August 30, 2012

It's almost time for Browns football in Cleveland, guys!

Which means it's also almost time for literally my favorite foodie event of the year, the 14th annual Taste of the Browns benefiting the Cleveland Foodbank.

This year's event takes place on Monday, September 10th in the Cleveland Browns Stadium AT&T City View Club Lounge from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

The funds raised for Cleveland Foodbank at Taste of the Browns provide more than half a million meals to those in need throughout Northeast Ohio over the course of the year. What better reason than that to support the cause by purchasing a ticket or participating in the silent auction.

The people watching is always stellar, as is spying for Browns players, who enjoy tasting food from around the region and sippin' on some adult beverages just like the rest of us.

Tickets are $150 each, partially tax delectable and can be purchased online here - with all proceeds benefiting the Cleveland Foodbank..

OR... wait for it....

You can 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 of the 25 participating restaurants you're most excited to try if you win.
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling me what you think the Cleveland Browns record will be this season.
  3. Share the following update on twitter: " Check out @clevelandsaplum's Taste of the Browns ticket giveaway and help @CleveFoodbank knock out hunger http://bit.ly/RpxEHI " and leave a comment telling me you did so. You can tweet daily, leaving a comment each time, for additional entries.
  4. Share this giveaway on Facebook - http://bit.ly/RpxEHI - 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 to leave your contact information if I don't already have it.

You have until next Thursday, September 6th, at 5pm to enter and I'll announce the winner the following morning.

Good luck to all who enter!


Happy Thursday, kids.

{I was provided a pair of tickets to attend the event as well as a pair of tickets for this giveaway in exchange for this post, as always, my opinions are my own}

  44. OK So I totally would LOVE to win this because my husband will probably never get to go to a Browns game again - LOL - thanks to our little bundle of joy that's due to arrive almost exactly one month from the date of this event! :)

    And I know he's been dying to try a lot of these restaurants -- most recently he's mentioned Momocho, so I know that would be a big hit!
