Whole Foods Market- Dayton Meet Up

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting my FIRST EVER Dining With C.Rich Meet-Up at Whole Foods Market– Dayton. Every Friday Whole Foods Market holds a “5 After 5 Wine Tasting” from 5p.m.-7p.m. You pay $5.00 for a super cute wine glass, and then you get to try out 5 different wine and food samples around the market. This is not a bad deal to start your weekend off with.

I had about 11 fellow food friends show up and conquer the wine tasting with me. We laughed, attempted to be wine “connoisseurs”, enjoyed tasty food samples, and overall enjoyed the company of one another. I am very pleased with how my first Meet Up turned out, and thankful to those who were able to join me.

Stay tuned, there will be plenty more Meet Ups and other #DWCR events to come. My overall goal is to get people out to meet and network with others while doing something we love… trying out new foods. Whether we keep it local or do some traveling outside our comfort zone, my goal is to see that everyone has a good time.

Throwback Thursday- The Ohio Spirit Tasting

Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending “The Ohio Spirit Tasting” at Lily’s Bistro. This event allowed patrons to sample some amazing Ohio made Spirits alongside tasty small plates. The Ohio Spirits in the building included OYO (Columbus), Watershed Distillery (Columbus), and Belle of Dayton (Dayton Duh!). With each “taster” received, a mini cocktail was concocted by the Bar Manager, Amber, with a brief discussion as we sipped. Between Amber’s cocktails and the Chef’s small plates, I was on cloud 9 throughout the entire event. I know Lily’s Bistro will have more events on the horizon, so be sure to catch the next one… you won’t regret it.

Ohio is in the BUILDING!


Deliciousness in a Cup!
