Best Chance to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Taste of the NFL: Cleveland Browns Celebrity Dinner

It's pure genius, this pairing of autumnal football fever with high-class culinary indulgence, and it's been a surefire fund-raising formula for the Cleveland Foodbank for the past three years. The outstanding affaire(this year scheduled for October 21) provides an opportunity to rub elbows with current and former Browns players and local celebrities, and to sample gourmet tidbits prepared by about 20 of Cleveland's foremost chefs, all while strolling through the Stadium's exclusive, glass-enclosed OfficeMax Club Lounge, wine glass gripped steadily (for the most part) in hand. And it's for a great cause: All proceeds benefit the Foodbank, making this one event where gratifying your own palate actually puts food on someone else's plate.
