Ambiance matters. And this time we’re going for the full-sensory experience. (Well, maybe just four out of the five.) We promise this will be completely unique.
Please join Cincinnati E.A.T.S. for our Spring 2009 event Wednesday, May 20, at Vito’s Café in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky for cocktails, socializing, and great food - all for a great cause.
Vito’s Café is the home of the singing servers. On top of an impressive Italian menu, Vito’s Café’s servers are graduate students at the area’s top vocal performing schools. In between serving your fettucine and picatta, servers will hop on stage to perform your favorite arias and Broadway show tunes. But don’t be surprised if they throw in something along the lines of Johnny Cash for good measure. After spending time in New York’s musical theater scene, owner Vito returned to Cincinnati to open a spot where he could combine his passion for food and music. There is nothing like this anywhere else in Cincinnati. And it’s only five minutes from downtown! For more information, see www.vitoscafe.com
Similar format, different location: You pay a discounted flat fee (that includes tax and tip) in advance for your meal. There are no table reservations and everyone eats together at the same time. It's a party with great food!
Drinks at 7 p.m on the outdoor patio. Guests will be seated in two shifts for dinner. The first room will be seated at 8 p.m. and the second will be seated at 8:15 p.m. You do not need to pick a particular time when you register. Vito’s Café will offer a four-course menu with accompanying wine pairings.
To register, please visit www.cincinnatieats.com and purchase your ticket via Paypal. Tickets are $40.00. You will make your course selections at the time that you purchase your ticket. On the night of the event, just bring your receipt with you. Drinks will be handled individually at the event.
The evening will benefit Cincinnati COOKS!, a free, 10-week program of the Freestore Foodbank that prepares low-income, at-risk adults for employment in the food service industry.
