$40 for Two Tickets to FreeportUSA Presents Freeport Ice Bar and Chef's Signature Series ($60 Value)
Tickets include access to both the Chef's Signature Series and the Freeport Ice Bar, where guests can enjoy food and drink samples in the ballroom and cocktails at the ice bar. The event, which is only open to guests aged 21 or older, runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 15.
Flavors of Freeport
Clinking glasses, chitchat, and the aromas of local fare from Freeport's finest chefs fill the air at the Hilton Garden Inn, which hosts the 2013 Flavors of Freeport presented by FreeportUSA. In the hotel's outdoor courtyard, thirsty guests can visit the Freeport Ice Bar, which offers hot coffee, samples of barbecue, and glowing beverages near toasty fires and glistening ice sculptures. A martini luge sends elixirs across icy planes and into waiting glasses while a soundtrack of tunes emanates straight from an onsite DJ.
Inside, some of Freeport's top epicureans showcase their palate-pleasing dishes during the Chef's Signature Series. A collection of wine, beer, and spirits gathered from Maine's purveyors slakes thirsts as guests sample an assortment of culinary offerings. Guests can cast votes for their favorite flavor entry and table display. Door-prizes raffles are also available. Event attendees also can place silent bids on pieces from the Freeport Art & Music Festival to benefit the Freeport Food Pantry. Both events only host those aged 21 or older.
