On the bright side, that was the extent of the "bad" and there were many more pluses than minuses. Overall, the evening was a great success and I would gladly attend again. For starters, the $10 admission came with complimentary coat check, 2 drink tickets per person (with additional drinks for a very reasonable $5), food samples, games, draws for prizes, entertainment, and loot bags at the end. Both bar and wait staff service was great, as is the norm at this venue. Guests were given food passports with six different countries to check off the list and were invited to make the rounds and visit the stations representing each country. At each stop, we could either play a game, complete an activity to qualify for a prize draw, or in the case of Mexico, sample delicious chocolate provided by ChocoSol. The venue was popular but not overcrowded and it was a very enjoyable evening.
WHAT: Real Food Adventures - presented by Intrepid Travel
WHERE: Steam Whistle Brewery
WHEN: February 28 - 6:30 pm
INSIDER DETAILS: I've said this before and I'll say this again - get to the event early to avoid lineups and get first dibs on samples and giveaways. Also, putting a solid effort into activities where only the correct answers are entered into a draw could score you some prizes, so take your time and use your resources wisely.
