I started feeling sick earlier in the day, but figured it wasn't a big deal and my excitement about the event buoyed me. My friend EKC and I arrived early, and from what I heard, it was a good thing. People arriving later had a long line to greet them. I snapped a quick pic of the main event space before it got crowded and we made our way to the VIP area.
After we stuffed ourselves with tuna belly and salmon belly rolls and tuna on a Pringle, we made our way back to the main room.
By this time I knew that I wasn't going to be able to hang out all night because I was feeling worse by the minute, so we munched our way around the room to taste as much as possible. Yes, I'm that girl who can eat when sick. I was really bad about getting photos (sorry!) but these should make you hungry:
|Mahi mahi taco from Nuevo - these guys will be opening a new restaurant on the |
Lake Erie waterfront at E.9th - head to Akron for a sneak peak and be sure to check them out!
|Dante Part 2 - this cavatelli was one of my favorites. I really loved|
the freshness the pomegranate added
|Candies were from Chocolates by Erin - these were so good |
I may have stuffed a couple in my purse...
|Melt managed to give us a sandwich...cookie! Two flavors, |
this one and a chocolate with vanilla cream filling
I was super excited and beyond amazed to see these girls...
|It's a Hero's Rachel and brand new Remy|
...because the tiny little bundle you see here was only FIVE DAYS OLD and already at her first foodie event.
There were a ton of great raffle items but I needed to head home. Some others included a blimp ride, wine and bourbon baskets, golf and spa packages and more.
It was another great event and I'm so glad I was able to attend, even for only a couple of hours.
If you haven't explored our neighbor to the south, you really should! Akron has a lot of great eats. Make 2016 your year to explore the 330 - you won't be disappointed!
