Dish (formerly Menu Affair), Westword's annual culinary bash that extols the city's best bites, wine sips, suds and sounds, kicks off tonight at Ninth Avenue Historic Park with food from thirty restaurants and food trucks all invited to participate by Cafe Society scribes, along with such liquid assets as beer and wine, along with a celebration of the Art of the Cocktail, and live music from Air Dubai, Rachel Platten and Robert Eldridge.
Earlier this week, we gave one general admission ticket holder the opportunity to upgrade to VIP tickets if they could answer a simple question: How many beef tartare orders has Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar, one of the restaurants that will be at Dish tonight, served since it opened on August 29?
And the winner is...
Ashley H, who hit the exact number on the head, with her guess of 96 beef tartares.
Thanks for playing, and see you tonight at Dish! Tickets, by the way, will be available at the door.
