12 Chefs of Christmas Ticket Giveaway

Hey you guys, I have a couple of tickets to give away for this event again this year! Last year was a great time and a great way to try a bunch of different beers paired by some of our favorite local chefs.

This year there will be dishes from Brad Gates, Roger Hawkins (Circle City Soups), Mark Cox and Josh Henson (Fermenti Artisan), Cindy Hawkins (Circle City Soups), Paul Dentam (Spice Box), Kathy Jones (Junonia Fish Market), Andrew Whitmoyer (U-Relish), Valerie Vanderpool (Zest!), Pete Schmutte (Cerulean), John-Michael Gioe (Miracle), Jonathan and Ashley Brooks, Milktooth, and Carlos Salazar (Rook).

So if you're interested, leave a comment below telling my why you want to go and I will pick a winner at random. I'll announce the winner around 4:00 tomorrow (if I don't hear from you within 24 hours, I will pick another winner). If you don't win, you can also get tickets here (and they even have a reduced price for designated drivers): http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/477622.

Cheers,
Erin

  4. My husband and I have been eliminating our debt over the last 1.5 years. We go out a lot less because of it. This is a great opportunity to try a lot of local food that I've missed out on paired with Flat12 beer.
