Congrats to Kelly H. for winning the pair of tickets to the Taste of the World event! Message me your mailing address so your tickets can be mailed to you!
I have always wanted a Round The World plane ticket.
We have a family friend in Connecticut who was gifted one of these tickets after graduation. He spent months traveling in one direction around the globe… working on farms in New Zealand and exploring European towns.
He showed up one day in Hartford and called his mom, asking if she had time to pick him up.
The wanderlust in me is always thinking about a dynamite trip, and the RTW ticket is one of the highest status symbols among travel junkies.
But they’re pricey.
And that’s where food comes in.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is hosting its 10th annual Taste of the World event on Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 pm at Newport Aquarium.
A destination event for local foodies, this event will serve up some of the best bites in the region from restaurants including Stone Creek Dining Company, Taste of Belgium and Pit to Plate. Guests will also enjoy libations from the city’s most accomplished mixologist Molly Wellmann, as well as beverages from partners including Four Roses Distillery, Cutting Edge Selection and Chas. Seligman.
Around 700 people are expected to enjoy event details like club-style seating to soak up Cincinnati’s skyline, live music and of course the wonderful underwater world of Newport Aquarium.
This event is a great substitute for those of you itching for a jaunt to somewhere far.
Tickets are $150 per person, and a portion of that ticket price goes to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Leukemia runs in my family and I am happy to promote a cause that is helping people with blood cancer.
Interested in going? I’m giving away a pair of tickets to the event. You have two ways to enter:
- Leave a comment below telling me about your favorite animal at the Aquarium
- Re-tweet this blog post and cc: me in your tweet (@kate_the_great)
If you leave a comment, please be sure I have a way to reply to you – either a registered profile with an email address, or an email address in your comment.
The contest will close at noon on Friday, November 1; I will randomly select a winner shortly thereafter.
Good luck and I hope to see you at Taste of the World!
