Taste of the Browns Giveaway

Happy Monday! Why is it a happy start to the week? For me, it's because I get to meet Bethenny Frankel this evening. There are very few celebrities that I "geek out" over, but she's one of them. She's come a long way since her Real Housewives days, and her success as a businesswoman, openness about her struggles in relationships, and blunt sarcastic sense of humor have me awestruck. Now, the only questions is...What does one wear to meet Bethenny?!??!

So, because I'm having a fabulous day...let's host a fabulous ticket giveaway that will make your Monday brighter as well. I'm talking about Taste of the Browns to benefit the Cleveland Foodbank. It's coming up on Monday, September 9th (the day after the Browns' home opener), and you have a chance to win two general admission tickets.

It's the 15th anniversary of the event, so it promises to be an extra special night out. The event features samples from some of our area's best chefs, including: AMP 150, B-Spot, Blue Point Grille, Deagan's, Fahrenheit, Georgetown, Greenhouse Tavern, Hodge's, Lago, Light Bistro, Momocho, Piew W, XO Steaks, and the Zack Bruell Restaurants.
There is also beer and wine included with your ticket, and the chance to bid on some great auction packages. You can meet and mingle with current and former Browns players, and enjoy live music while you stroll through the event. It's held at Browns Stadium FirstEnergy Stadium, and you get an amazing view of downtown at this event.
 
A General Admission ticket is $175, and a VIP ticket is $250. All proceeds benefit the Cleveland Foodbank, and for every $1 donated, they can provide enough food for 4 nutritious meals in a local hunger center. Tickets are still available, but don't wait because this event typically sells out.
 
One lucky reader will receive two General Admission tickets! Just leave me a comment below, telling me which of the participating restaurants you'd like to try first. If you'd like additional entries, here are a few ways:
 
1. Comment below, telling me which participating restaurant you want to try first.
2. Tweet "I want @BiteBuff to send me to the #TasteoftheBrowns! www.bitebuff.com"
3. "Like" my blog's page on Facebook, and "Like" the Cleveland Foodbank on Facebook
 
You can tweet once a day for more entries, until the contest ends. Make sure that you leave a comment for each entry. I will use random.org to select a winner on Thursday, August 29th.

Good luck!

Disclosure: I was provided with two General Admission tickets to give away, and two VIP passes for myself in exchange for this post. I am also a YP Pantry Council member for the Cleveland Foodbank, and a former employee. I choose to support this organization, and believe in their mission. All opinions stated are 100% my own.

Anything by Zack Bruell.....doesn't seem to ever get mentioned alongside the Symons and Sawyers of the world, but is a longtime Cleveland celebrity chef in his own right....Z Contemporary Cuisine was a trailblazer over 20 years ago
