Upcoming Spring Events

Spring and Summer are always packed with fun events in Cleveland. The warm weather and sunshine brings us out and about, and it's truly my favorite time of year in our city. There are a few upcoming events that I wanted to share with you.

Monday, May 14th- Dinner in the Dark takes over Washington Place Bistro in Little Italy. 6:30PM. This monthly series brings together diners and chefs for a night of fun and creativity in the kitchen. Diners are "in the dark" about what will be served that night, and who is in the kitchen. Six different chefs expertly create a multi-course meal, with wine/cocktail pairings. $65 plus tax and gratuity. All proceeds benefit a charity of the month. May's event will benefit The Dancing Wheels Company and School. These events tend to sell out quickly, so don't wait!

Wednesday, May 23rd- Cleveland Magazine's Silver Spoon Awards to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. 6:00PM. Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center. Sample food and drink from restaurants that have won a 2012 Silver Spoon Award. $85 for General Admission, or $135 for a VIP ticket.

Thursday, May 24th- Emerging Chefs present "Snout to Tail- an Urban Pig Roast" with Melissa Khoury from Washington Place Bistro (formally of AMP 150). $65, or $75 for the Chef's Table. Event will be held at Dunham Tavern & Museum. 6:00PM.

Sunday, June 10th- Chef Jam at the Rock Hall, featuring over 20 of our area's chefs as they create a dish inspired by their favorite rock star or band. Wind your way through the exhibits as you enjoy food and cocktails, and then listen to live music from great local bands. $65. I am sharing this event now, because tickets go on sale this Monday, April 23rd and they have sold out quickly the past two years. This is my favorite summer food event!

These are just a couple of my favorites, and I have attended all of them in the past. Emerging Chefs host rotating events that are different every time, but they always do a nice job and feature some really talented chefs. I will be attending Dinner in the Dark and Chef Jam on my own dime.

Any other upcoming events worth sharing? What event do you look forward to most in the spring or summer here in Cleveland?
