Eat Local for the Globe

Last year I had the pleasure of attending the first-ever Eat Local for the Globe fundraising event for Findlay Market and had a very enjoyable time dining on locally raised fare prepared by some of the area's top chefs, and drinking locally made wines while mingling with fellow locavores.

I'm pleased to hear that there will be a second annual Eat Local for the Globe event. It is scheduled for Thursday, June 9 from 6 PM - 10 PM. The event will be held at Findlay Market and all proceeds benefit the Findlay Market Fund. It's a fun event supporting a good cause. Hope to see you there!

The event includes:
  • Dinner by the bite prepared by Findlay Market's own talented chefs from Fresh Table, Skirtz & Johnston, Bouchard's, Gramma Debbie's Kitchen, and Pho Lang Thang
  • Dessert provided by Dojo Gelato and Taste of Belgium
  • Regional wines from Harmony Hill and more
  • Variety of Christian Moerlein beers
  • Craft cocktails prepared by Molly Wellman using regionally-produced spirits
  • Music provided by WNKU's popular "Mr. Rhythm Man"
  • Raffle items
  • Complementary event poster
  • An opportunity to tour the Findlay Market District and hear about plans for its ongoing revitalization
Tickets are $50 per person and can be securely purchased online here. You can also follow the event on Facebook.

The summer of 2010 was so hot and dry that grape tonnage at Kinkead Ridge was less than 50% of normal; consequently we will not be able to participate in any events this year; and the white wines released on Memorial Day weekend will only be available at the winery, and not in our normal wholesale locations. Wish we could attend. Hopefully next year!
