The Golden Lawnchair

Its getting really close to Thanksgiving and crunch time for all those dinner plans. But unfortunately not everyone is secure in the knowledge they'll have enough to eat. Which brings us to the 'Nomerati and her pop-up restaurant planned and executed with Josh of Mayberry and benefitting the Freestore FoodBank. Upscale Americana food, raffles and a slient auction helped raise awareness and much needed funds for the foodbank.

Laura enjoying a rare quiet moment in the evening, she did a fantastic job planning this event. It seemed ambitious to me as she talked about it while planning the event and amazingly she pulled it all off without a hitch. Raffles in between courses. A round or two of bingo before dessert, it was an incredible night all around. Good food, lots of fun all while helping out others. She had lots of help of course so credit goes to all those people too, good job everyone.
I feel like I need to add this also;
Not only does Laura kickass, but also Dojo Gelato for giving a lucky donor the opportunity to create and name their very own gelato flavor, then sell that flavor for a week at their shop in Findlay Market and donate all proceeds from that flavor's sales to the Freestore Foodbank.
Cincinnati is fortunate to have businesses like Dojo Gelato, A Tavola Pizza, Molly Wellmann and Nicola's. Plus all the others who donated time and services to help the Freestore Foodbank.

The Grand prize was a vintage bike from the Wrong Brothers and a pinic basket stuffed from Picnic and Pantry.

Buenos Croches, some hard rocking girls. I need to start getting out again for live music, I keep forgetting how much I enjoy it.

  1. Not only does Laura kickass, but also Dojo Gelato! For giving a lucky donor the opportunity to create and name their very own gelato flavor! Then sell that flavor for a week at their shop in Findlay Market and will donate all proceeds from your flavor's sales to the Freestore Foodbank.

  2. Thanks for a great blog post and awesome pics! I'm so glad everyone had a great time. And those truffle tater tots!

    Thanks Michael, I do what I can :) Your perk was an amazing idea and I can't wait to see what flavor comes out of it. Thank you so much for your generosity!
