Add a Little Drama to Your Dinner With Plated & Staged

Posted on: March 7th, 2017 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

As a former drama kid, maintaining some connection to the arts and instilling a love and appreciation through my children is so very important to me. Imagine that my love of the theater and my love for all things culinary come together: mind blown! That is just the thing that is happening on April 30th via Plated & Staged and I’ve got five reasons why you won’t want to miss this very special event!

Plated & Staged5 Reasons Not To Miss Plated & Staged

  1. It’s a benefit! Proceeds from the event will benefit the Herberger Theater’s Youth Outreach Programs; Arizona Young Artists’ Competition, Multicultural Theater Camp and Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts.
  2. Who doesn’t love a little silent auction action? While we don’t have access to the silent auction items just yet
  3. While you are perusing the special collection of silent auction items, you’ll be greeted by a cocktail reception where you can mingle with other guests and make guesses on where the night will take you.
  4. Since we are talking about the theater, of course there will be a little drama. That will come from not knowing exactly where you will be dining! There will be several participating restaurants and each will host a table of eight.
  5. Your dinner will be a complete work of artistry. You’ll likely find several off-menu items at your table during your three-course meal with wine pairings.

Who doesn’t love a little drama and mystery and what better way to experience all of that than while supporting the arts and a very worthy cause? Make sure to check out the event website to stay up to date on any updates or changes that might occur. We don’t want to give everything away but some of the participating restaurants this year are Sel, Southern Rail and Rusconi’s American Kitchen. You can bet that there will be more, and a big part of the fun will be not knowing where you will be going until the very last moment.
