Buckeye Vodka’s Battle of the Bartenders is coming!
March 12 from 5:30pm-8:30pm at White Allen European Auto
See your favorite bartenders create and serve a cocktail featuring Dayton’s own Buckeye Vodka, listen to them trash talk each other to death, and watch them tremble before a panel of judges, all for charity! Go to dineoutdayton.com, the official website of the Miami Valley Restaurant Association, for details. Our own mixologist Dustin Wade will be wielding the shaker for Meadowlark/Wheat Penny, and we’ll be serving pizzas along with the cocktail. Hope to see you there!
Wiley goes to Chicago
Wiley will be escaping the day-to-day for about a week in March to attend the annual Women Chefs and Restaurateurs National Conference. Presenters include Stephanie Izzard, Rick Bayless, Elizabeth Falkner and lots of other luminaries. Wiley will be participating in workshops devoted to food preservation and fermentation (think smoking and pickling), Beer and Food Pairing, Restaurant Finances, Getting the most out of Social Media (she might skip that one…) and who knows what else, along with rubbing elbows and clinking cocktails with the best women chefs in the business. She declined an invitation to participate in the big culinary competition, but accepted an invitation to dine at the home of Chef Rick Bayless the night before the conference begins. She will sneak in a visit to her brother and his family (in Wilmette) and she will try to hit as many restaurants as she can while she is in the big cit-tay! The extra workouts on the elliptical start NOW!
