Taste of the Browns Ticket Giveaway

I've got a tasty lunchtime treat for you on this rainy, dreary Monday in Cleveland...it's a ticket giveaway for the Cleveland Foodbank's Taste of the Browns event on Monday, September 10th!
The event is hosted at Browns Stadium, with about 20 of Cleveland's top restaurants serving up delicious samples of their signature dishes. While at the event, you get to meet and mingle with Cleveland Browns alumni and current players, sip on wine, beer, and signature cocktails, and bid on some exclusive auction and raffle prizes. All for a good cause, because for every $1 donated to the Cleveland Foodbank, it allows them to provide four nutritious meals in a local hunger center. Your $150 ticket never went to a better cause, because hunger is something that no one should have to experience. Food is such a basic need, and one that most of us take for granted.

However, hungry is what you'll need to be in order to get through sampling all of the food at this event, because you won't want to miss any of the restaurants. Here is a sneak peek at what some of them will be serving:

- Piew W: lobster taquitos with avocado and corn juice
- Greenhouse Tavern/Sawyer's Street Frites: whole braised beef shin a'la bourguignon
- Momocho: wild boar tamales
- Blue Point Grille: lobster bisque
- Fahrenheit: chicken-basil Parmesan meatball sandwiches
- Georgetown: watermelon and cucumber salad
- AMP 150: Ohio corn soup with pickled ramp and corn salsa
- Deagan's Kitchen & Bar: spicy lamb meatballs with tzatziki and cucumber salad
- Market Garden Brewery: chicken and jalapeno sausage on pretzel crostini
- Zack Bruell Restaurants: Italian boneless pork roast with four unique sides
- One Red Door: jumbo gulf shrimp with mango, tomato, and jalapeno salsa
- XO Prime Steaks: beef and chicken kabobs with Peruvian BBQ sauce

A little something for everyone, and some decadent desserts as well. My mouth is watering.

Want to attend? Tickets are still available here, or you can enter my giveaway and score two general admission tickets to the event. There are two ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post, telling me which dish on the list above sounds the most tantalizing.
2. Tweet- "I want to attend the #TasteoftheBrowns thanks to @BiteBuff's giveaway at http://tinyurl.com/93wr7xr." Make sure you leave a second comment on this post, letting me know that you tweeted. You may tweet once a day to earn more chances to win.

I will select a winner using random.org on Friday, August 31st. Good luck!

Disclosure: I was provided with two general admission tickets to give away to one lucky reader, and two VIP passes to attend the event myself. I am a former employee of the Cleveland Foodbank, and used to plan Taste of the Browns for them. The opinions stated above are 100% my own. This event is truly awesome, and I will always support the important work that the Foodbank does in our community.

Lobster Taquitos look the most interesting. Mexican with lobster should be interesting, yet delicious. Can't wait.

Emily said...

it's a tie - lobster taquitos and chicken-basil parmesan meatballs! Though it all sounds so good...

Leanne @ The Skinny Architect said...

This all looks amazing, but I love GHT, so I would have to say the braised beef shin! I have been looking for a gift for my fiance's birthday (it's the 11th) and this would be perfect!
