I’m prepping for the biggest dinner of my life to date this weekend, and I am VERY thankful I don’t have to cook for this event.
Because there are going to be 1201 people there!!!
Table for 1201, the bigger and better (by one) sequel to last year’s Table for 1200 which sprawled the entire length (and then some) of the Esplanade Riel, is happening this Saturday. The event put on by Storefront MB, Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, Tourism Winnipeg, Event Glass and Travel Manitoba is a huge celebration of architecture and architectural culture.
And we’re going to do so by indulging in some of the best food Winnipeg has to offer. Ben Kramer from Diversity Foods, Mandel Hitzer from deer & almond and a bunch of their colleagues are preparing a Manitoba-made family-style meal for all 1201 of us. My mouth is watering already.
Where is this giant table, you ask? Very good question, but part of the fun is it’s a secret!
Like last year, the location will be announced one hour before dinner is served (6:00 location announcement, 7:00 dinner), and guests are encouraged to wear white and bring their own chairs.
Tickets are $90 and pretty much sold out, but here’s the thing: I have two empty seats at my table. Care to join me?
Let me know in the comments below where in Winnipeg (think picturesque) you’d like to have dinner with 1200 of your BFFs.
I’ll let you know if you’re the lucky winner by 10AM on Friday, May 22!
Note: Dinner is at 7PM on Saturday, May 23. Stay tuned to the email address you use to comment on this blog to find out if you’ve won!
