Seasonal Special Happenings

A Unique Dinner

When: Mon., June 5 2017

Last November, local ceramicist Billy Ritter partnered with Toast Wine Bar in Gordon Square for a special dinner inspired by Toast’s menu and Chef Joe Horvath’s plating. This time, Ritter is partnering with the Black Pig for a unique dinner, consisting of a cocktail, six savory dishes and one sweet dish. Designed to emphasize Chef Michael Nowak’s specially-designed menu, Ritter has handcrafted seven ceramic pieces using organic shapes, textures and a natural palette. Due to limited seating, only 30 tickets are available. Therefore, Ritter has only created 30 of each dish, and each will be available for purchase after dinner. The meal includes meat, seafood, vegetables and gluten. Due to the unique nature of the event, no substitutions are available. Tickets are $100 each, and include one welcome cocktail, food, tax and gratuity. Billy Ritter’s art education began in a graphic arts program at a vocational technical school during high school. He earned his BFA in painting from Slipper Rock University in Pennsylvania and his MFA in ceramics from Kent State University in 2010. During his time at Kent State, Ritter studied with legendary local ceramicists Kirk Mangus and Craig Lucas. Ritter is also an adjunct professor at Tri-C’s Western Campus and teaching artist of ceramics at NewBridge Cleveland. The dinner takes place at 6:30 tonight. (Usmani)
