Be Sure to Get Your Tickets to Scene's Flavor Event, Happening This Thursday Evening


There are only a couple of days left before Flavor, Scene's annual dining event, happening this Thursday evening from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum at the Western Reserve Historical Society. Tickets are just $40 in advance ($55 day of) and get you unlimited food from 30+ restaurants and vendors (full list below), as well as six drink tickets for beer, wine or cocktails.

Entertainment includes the third annual Iron Fork competition featuring returning champion Chef Nelly Buleje (Adega) squaring up against Chef Ken Hatfield (Hatfield's Goode Grub) and Chef Eric Wells (Skye LaRae's). Judging the prestigious affair will be Anthony Lima (92.3 The Fan), Will Hollingsworth (The Spotted Owl) and Anna Houravis (Anna in the Raw).

Guests will also enjoy the Crawford museum, which boasts some 140 antique cars, the Euclid Beach Carousel and music provided by I Am Yulissa.

This year's Flavor will be benefitting the non-profit Kids Kicking Cancer. They offer a series of programs focused on leading a healthy active lifestyle. Programs include athletic sports clinics in a variety of sports (soccer, basketball, golf, swimming and more), as well as cooking and nutrition clinics. Participants have the opportunity to learn new skills, to gain confidence, to feel like they belong and to make new friends. Programs are provided at no cost to the participant or their family.
