Silver Spoon Awards Party, May 14, 2014

Cleveland Magazine’s Silver Spoon Awards Party, May 14

When it comes to Cleveland food events, I like to prepare in advance. That means scouting which restaurants are going to be there, developing a game plan for the most efficient tasting route, and getting my appetite in shape.

There are some events I can get away with going in blind; however, if there’s anything I’ve learned from previous years, the Silver Spoon Awards Party is not one of those events.

I mean that in the best way.

When I’m asked for a list of my favorite Cleveland food events, a small handful come to mind. Year after year, Silver Spoon is consistently tops.

Each year, Cleveland Magazine readers vote on restaurants that are the best at what they do. Whether that’s pizza, brunch, sushi, Greek food, dessert, happy hour … the list goes on. The restaurant finalists are then invited to show off their signature dish in May to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation, Great Lakes Region, Northeastern Ohio.

Add on top of that, wine from eight international vinters, cocktails from Brown-Forman, a silent auction, late-night after-party in the VIP lounge, and loads of other surprises, and now you know why I prepare like I’m going to run a marathon. 

This year’s Silver Spoon Party promises to be bigger than  ever because  it’s the 20th Anniversary. On Wednesday, May 14, over 40 restaurants will take over 200 Public Square.

    I am most excited to hear that Aladdin’s Eatery is part of the line-up! To me – this is truly comfort food, and I love that they make delicious and healthy food so accessible by being in so many locations. I am never disappointed in my food choices… plus they have killer desserts!

    商品の梱包がとても綺麗で気持ちがよかったです!
    お電話でバッグに長財布が入るか問い合わせしたところ、
    「外寸が20cmなので、長財布が18~19cmとして、たぶん無理だと思いますよ」と女性スタッフの方にさらりと言われましたが、
    届いた商品には長財布ぎりぎり入りました。
    ご面倒だったのかもしれませんが、せめて入るかどうか試してほしかったです。
    もしくは何センチの財布を入れようとしているのか聞いて、測ってほしかったです。
    でも、その点以外はとても良いお買い物ができました。
    ありがとうございました(^^)

    丁寧ですね。
    今回は、ヴィトンのネクタイを購入させてもらいました
    付属の袋など無いだろうと思っていましたが、きちんとヴィトンの袋に入って届きました
    対応も早く、丁寧。梱包等も十分な物でした。
    こちらのショップは、安心して買い物が出来る印象をもちました。
    また機会があれば利用させてもらいます。
