Over 40 restaurants will be serving up samples of their specialties at Lincoln Park Commons starting at 5pm on Thurs, Sept 2nd to benefit the Kettering-Moraine-Oakwood Chamber of Commerce. As a past attendee of this event I can tell you that the $20 advance ticket price ($25 day of event) is a bargain, but be prepared to stand in long lines.
Some highlights to look for will be the debut of Joya’s Bistro, the new Italian pizza & pasta place that will be opening this fall at The Greene, newer restaurants Butter Cafe and The Hawthorn Grill are first time participants worth checking out, The Oakwood Club usually serves up some spectacular salmon, and be sure to save some room for samples from ele Cake Company- best known for finger licking good buttercream frosting!
Expect the longest lines for Fleming’s grilled beef tenderloin in a peppercorn sauce, McCormick &
Schmick’s & City Barbeque, if history repeats itself. And ever year it amazes me the number of people that will line up for Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but they do! Be sure to check out the silent auction, featuring incredible packages including Ohio State University Football Tickets and Tailgating, Kutn Loose Party Bus and Bar Crawl, Outdoor Living package including a paver grill surround with an inset grill and grill gazebo, University of Dayton Football Tickets, and a Relaxation Station including all the items you need to relax on your patio. There will also be raffle baskets, each with a minimum value of $1000.
