Our friends at Columbus Underground are donating proceed's from this month's Best Bites to She Has A Name! Here's more information:
Two years ago, Columbus Underground launched the Best Bites food tasting events — a series designed to showcase the food scene in our city all while raising money for charity. Since then, the series has continued to grow in popularity and number of events. Today we’re pleased to announce that Best Bites: Burgers, the inaugural event, will be returning on October 13th for the third year in a row. You’re invited to join us at the new Grand Event Center in Grandview Yard for another celebration of the best burgers in Columbus from 6pm to 10pm.
Participating restaurants include: The Crest, Paddy Wagon, Bareburger, Gallerie Bar & Bistro, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, The Grand Event Center, Street Thyme Food Truck, Due Amici, Hoof Hearted Brewing, Westies Gastropub, Melt Bar & Grilled, The Point Bar & Grill,Blind Lady Tavern and more to be announced before the event.
Advance tickets to the event are $30 which include burger samples from each vendor, live entertainment, a cash bar featuring Modelo and a chance to vote on your favorite burgers of the night. Two ticketed times are available: 6pm-8pm or 8pm-10pm, and tickets are expected to sell out in advance.
A portion of all ticket sales from Best Bites: Burgers will be donated to She has a Name, a local nonprofit that is committed to engaging and equipping volunteers, serving partner organizations, and providing job readiness initiatives for survivors of human trafficking. They join together declaring that survivors of trafficking have a name, a nobility, and a narrative. The Best Bites series has raised over $22,000 for local charities since 2014.
Best Bites: Burgers is sponsored by L&E Research.
