Event Recap: Taste of the Browns 2016

Last night, Mr. H and I attended the 2016 Taste of the Browns to benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Food Bank supporters, Browns fans, and foodies alike gathered to raise awareness and funds, and the event exceeded its fundraising goal by raising $226,000 for the Food Bank. Just incredible.

We got to have dishes from some of our favorite restaurants, like AMP 150.
Their hotcake was a sample of the new brunch menu, and it certainly made me want to head over there to try it out.

I also got to try samples from restaurants that I haven't had before, like Yuzu.
I really liked their Korean Beef dish (pictured top left below).

There was no shortage of food last night...
You always have to plot your stops wisely at this event.

Attendees also had the opportunity to bid on auction items, including a ton of Browns experience packages and memorabilia.
There were also dining packages, a Vitamix, spa packages, family outings, Indians tickets, artwork, and more. I lost out on the two dining packages I was bidding on. Next time!

One of the event's highlights is that guests can step outside into the quiet stadium. It's so peaceful to sit for a moment in the empty stands.
I always enjoy this event, and the Food Bank is a cause near and dear to my heart. Congratulations to their staff on a job well done, and thank you to all of the donating restaurants and beverage purveyors that filled our bellies! Many in our community go hungry every day, and this event raises important awareness and funds to help the Food Bank with their mission work in Northeast Ohio.
