Did I tell you I WON the voting round??
Isn’t that remarkable?
Thank you so to the many who voted for me. Seriously
Now that the voting is over here is what is next.
Tomorrow night, Saturday February 19th, 2011. All the chefs, the community chefs ( that would include moi ) and selected community artists are gathering for a launch party!! There will be music with the lovely DJ Krista Lee of Magic. Some terrific nosh, and a cash bar.
I will get to meet my Chef Karen, of Entourage Lounge, the restaurant I was paired with!! Because I won the vote, I will get to actually pick which piece of art we want to inspire our dinner and dessert entry for Voting Day on February 23rd, 2011. You can view the art gallery and decide your favorite here.
Two things for you to do:
Go out to eat!! Restaurant week ( February 20 – 25th ) is all about local select venues creating a special priced three course meal just for you!! Perfect time to try something new!! Some places are offering $ 5 lunch options!
Save the date February 23rd, 2011 and join me on Voting Day! This is about coming to meet “Team Karen” and voting for the dishes we’ve created inspired by our chosen art!
Aren’t you insanely curious to see what we come up with??
I’d love to see you!! I plan to be there from 5 – 7 PM
