“Cooking: Possible” splits the spotlight between celebrity chef Robert Irvine, star of the Food Network’s Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible, and Jonathon Sawyer, sous chef for Michael Symon on Iron Chef America and owner of Greenhouse Tavern. During the show, the hash-slinging savants pepper engaging cooking demos with video segments from Irvine’s popular television series. A large screen perched above the stage pours elaborate views of each dish into the audience, including detailed close-ups and a kiss cam for snuggling potatoes.
As the duo tosses ingredients and cheerful banter, guests can participate in a live auction that seats the winner at the chefs’ table onstage, where they will dine on the food prepared during the show and learn tips on proper spork etiquette. Proceeds from the event and the auction will benefit the Mozel Sanders Foundation, backing this year’s goal to deliver more than 40,000 Thanksgiving meals to the elderly, medically confined, and less fortunate members of the greater Indianapolis area.
Clowes Memorial Hall
For the late Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, the most important things in life were science and the arts. The good doctor wanted to share this devotion with the Indianapolis community, so he devised and funded Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University. Completed in 1963, the hall shares Butler's gorgeous aesthetic with its arching stone façade and lush crimson interior, which has room for over 2,000 patrons. In addition to major touring productions and public speakers, Clowes Memorial Hall is also the home of the Indianapolis Opera, the Butler Ballet, and the Indy 500.
