Win Tickets to Near West Theatre's Benefit

It's still hard to believe that it is January...2012...a new year. Where does the time go? The blog will turn 4 in just a few short months. I can't even begin to count all of the wonderful things that blogging has brought to my life, and I have a feeling that this year will be even better. But two things that it has brought me were both mashed together last Friday night as I attended Alexa and Lisa's New Year's Eve Eve HollaDays party at, the not even open yet, Spice Bar + Kitchen in the Gordon Square Arts district. First, some fabulous friends that I never would have met if it weren't for social media, and secondly, a heightened awareness of the happenings in Cleveland. Not only did I get to enjoy a night out with a great group of people, but I was also able to check out Spice's new space before it's even open to the public. Let me just say...we're in for another fantastic dining hot spot in Cleveland. The space is looking gorgeous with exposed brick, muted colors, warm woods, and just enough of an "industrial" feel to leave me wanting more. I also received a sneak peek at their first menu recently, and it seems well-balanced and focused, while maintaining their commitment to staying local and seasonal.

So, all this chattering about Spice Bar + Kitchen is really leading me to today's post. They have partnered with Euro USA to provide the food for Near West Theatre's Annual Benefit on Saturday, January 28th. This is only 18 short days after Spice's expected opening, so it's a great chance to check them out while supporting a worthy local organization.
"Consider Yourself One of Us!" will provide a night of performances by Near West cast members, food and drink, desserts provided by Gypsy Bean & Baking Co., dancing and a live DJ, and a fantastic silent auction and raffle. Tickets are $85 (or a 10-pack for $800), and you can purchase them by calling 216-961-6391 or at www.nearwesttheatre.org/benefit. It is being held from 6-9:30PM at Trinity Cathedral in Downtown Cleveland.

Or, you can win two tickets here! I have generously been provided two tickets for myself, and two tickets to give away to one lucky reader. Come join me for a night of enjoying the arts, and checking out Spice Bar + Kitchen. The after-party is being hosted in their new space on Detroit Avenue, with cash bar/food and live music from The Luckey Ones. Simply leave a comment on this post expressing your interest in winning, and I will drawn a winner this Monday using random.org. You can also receive a second entry for tweeting "I want to win tickets to the Near West Theatre benefit from @BiteBuff at http://tinyurl.com/7436gg4". Make sure that you leave a second comment on this post if you tweet. So come enjoy an evening with Near West, myself, and Spice Bar + Kitchen. Good luck!

Disclosure: Near West Theatre provided me with two complimentary tickets to the benefit, and two tickets to give away to one reader in exchange for this post. However, I fully support this local organization and the opinions stated are 100% my own.
