Cleveland's Finest Hors D'oeurves Giveaway


Every year about this time, I am SO over wintery weather. That storm on Saturday was oh so cruel even though not totally unexpected. Today I'm daydreaming of sunshine, sandals and no more snow. I also start thinking about baseball! Today is Opening Day and The Home Opener is right around the corner (Friday 4/4!!) and I can't wait to get back to Tribe baseball again. If you're like me and are afraid of the opening day weather, there's a great way to experience Progressive Field without freezing AND help a wonderful organization at the same time.  
Even if you don't like baseball this is an event for everyone. Our Lady of the Wayside's Cleveland's Finest Hors D'oeuvre Contest is Thursday April 10th at the Terrace Club. 

From 6-9pm you'll get to experience some of the city's finest restaurants as they show off their tasty appetizers. The event also includes wine and beer to pair with the tasty nibbles. The food is plentiful and delicious! And doesn't everything taste better at the ballpark?

Participating restaurants include:

  • 100th Bomb Group
  • Battery Park Wine Bar
  • Becker's Bakery
  • Carrie Cerino's Ristorante
  • Chocolate Bar
  • The Clifton
  • Corleone's Ristorante
  • District 
  • Progressive Field
  • Sweet Melissa's
  • The Tree House
  • Townhall/Lago
  • Zack Bruell Restaurant Group (Chinato, Cowell & Hubbard, Dynomite, L'Albatros, Parallax, Table 45)
Desiray Cross and Tim Richards from WDOK The New 102 will be the hosts and YOU get to be the judge. Voting for your favorites might seem easy but last year there were so many great choices it was hard to choose!

Their will be a silent auction and chinese raffle as well as music by local singer-songwriter Nate Jones.

Our Lady of the Wayside is a great local charity that helps a lot of people. It's always a fun event and a delicious way to try food from a ton of great restaurants at one time. I like trying a little bit of everything so appetizers as a meal is one of my favorite ways to dine.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the event. People keep coming back year after year and it's one of Our Lady's biggest fundraisers of the year. They help 500 developmentally disabled children and adults every year. By attending this event, you can help them help those in need.

  4. Well, as you know, I'm most interested in getting out of the house and burning off a little cabin fever! However, I'm also really interested in trying the food from Battery Park Wine Bar. I have a gift certificate there and would love to sample before my visit.
