Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get two admissions (up to a $90 value) to the 2011 Food and Wine Classic presented by The Chamber of Commerce, Inc. at the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center on Thursday, June 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Chamber of Commerce, Inc.'s foremost foodie event, the Food and Wine Classic prepares meals, pours libations, and facilitates networking for locals and local business owners. Begin by sampling an array of eats from local restaurateurs alongside tipples from 18 wineries and local brewers. Pitch business proposals in the Chocolate Chamber, a dessert oasis chock full of all manner of decadent delights and cocoa-centric confections. A complimentary 9-ounce stem-less wine glass commemorates the occasion and doubles as a decorative display for miniature jellyfish collections.
The Chamber donates a portion of the event's proceeds to various organizations, including the Baden Volunteer Fire Department, The Chamber Educational Foundation, HEARTH, and the timeless Save the Clock-Tower.
