How does this grazing event work?
Many of the area's finest restaurants will provide a variety of small plate entrées and desserts following a lively cocktail hour and appetizers.
Note: If you miss the appetizer hour, you may not get to sample some of the restaurant creations as they will likely not still be available during dinner!
What if I have special dietary restrictions?
We work with the restaurants to ensure that there are multiple options available for those that are vegetarian, vegan, and/or gluten-free. These items will be indicated on the event menus along with the menu item descriptions. Additional questions can be directed to Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-994-8854. The restaurant staff present at each station will also be happy to answer any questions throughout the evening.
