Cincinnati E.A.T.S. has scheduled their last event for the year, and we’re going to actually make it to this one!
Each quarter, Cincinnati E.A.T.S. takes over a restaurant on an "off" night. This time it’s the venerable Nicola’s
in Over-the-Rhine. Drinks start at 7:00 and dinner is served at 8:00. You pay $37, but that flat fee includes a 3-course meal and a donation to the Peaslee
Neighborhood Center, which helps kids in Over-the-Rhine. The center
offers documentary workshops, music lessons for children and adults, a
women’s outreach group, and child care for kids up to age 12.
At this event drinks (read: wine) will be handled separately and credit cards will be taken at the event to cover those wine-related splurges. While I’m sad that the event does not include a separate wine flight, I still look forward to the event. Nicola’s has a soft spot in my heart. Once upon a time, a friend of mine always used to treat my girlfriends and me to dinner there, under the pretext of business. Since then, I’ve often gone there on semi-business related dinners, as well as pre-Opera meals, and we’ve never had a bad experience.
Hope to see you there! It’s a great opportunity to meet other young professionals, have some great food, and help a worthy cause.
