L'Amour du Vin Preview & Giveaway

Happy October! For me, this month is already filling up with fall fabulousness. Margaritas, mojitos and poppy summer tunes have made way for jazz, bourbon sippers and spicy red wines.

Speaking of wine, the Arthritis Foundation of Northeast Ohio is celebrating the 15th year of L'Amour du Vin and guess what? They want you to celebrate with them. The kind people over there have generously donated a pair of tickets for me to give away.

EMH Healthcare & The Arthritis Foundation present:

Premier Wine & Food Tasting Event
Thursday, October 18th 6-9PM

L'Amour du Vin is an evening filled with world-class wines and cuisine from some of the best restaurants in Cleveland's western suburbs. Not only will there be great food, drink and mingling, but guests will enjoy live entertainment, a silent auction and the opportunity to win fabulous prizes. 

General Admission $60 ($70 at the door): sampling of cuisine from 15 restaurants, international wines, silent auction and entertainment.

KeyBank VIP Lounge admission $90: includes the above benefits as well as admission to the VIP Lounge sponsored by KeyBank that includes complimentary specialty cocktails and exclusive cuisine. 

Get your sip on: Woodford Reserve, Woodford Double Oaked
Jack Daniels, Gentleman Jack, Jack Single Barrel

The swanky KeyBank VIP Lounge will not only have handcrafted cocktails, but the gentlemen from Brown-Forman will be on hand offering whiskey and bourbon tastings. Oh, hello there, darling!

....and crowd favorite, Watershed Distillery, will be offering up vodka tastings. 

Flavor the Town Catering and the Wood Fire Grille will be the exclusive restaurants in the lounge and members of the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music will be performing to get you in the bid on some VIP-only silent auction items.

If all that sipping, sampling and swaying to the music gets to be too much, Exhale, The Spa at EMH, will be at the ready with small spa services, such as chair massages, to ease you back into party mood. This is one event where the VIP ticket really is worth it.
