It's a Food Frenzy at the Powerhouse Thursday night

    The Eating Oxford blog is sponsoring the second annual Food Frenzy at the Powerhouse this Thursday, September 29. Admission is $10 and includes food samples from a number of area restaurants. So apparently you can go and make a meal of it.
    Seventy-five percent of funds raised through ticket sales will go to the local food pantry.
    From the Eating Oxford blog:
It’s finally here! The Two-Year Anniversary event is happening this Thursday, September 29, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at The Powerhouse. Many of you have already secured your tickets online at or at The Powerhouse. You can also purchase them at the door on the night of the event for only $10.00! Don’t forget that 75% of your admission price will be donated to The Pantry.

An on-site food-themed raffle will occur every 30 minutes, so bring a few extra dollars to win some fabulous prizes such as gift certificates for Ravine and Tacky Shack; gift packages from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Old Thyme Farms; and a variety of unique cookbooks!

There are a few restaurants that I’m waiting to hear final word from, but as of today, you can start gearing up to sample delicioiusness from the following local eateries (in alphabetical order):

6 ‘ N Tubbs
Colonel’s Quarters at Castle Hill
Honey Bee Bakery
Lusa Pastry Cafe
Main Squeeze
Mink’s On the Park
Olivia’s Food Emporium
Petra Mediterranean Cuisine
Proud Larry’s
Rice & Spice
Tacky Shack
Taylor Grocery
Turkuaz Cafe

    It sounds like a lot of fun. If the kids get their homework finished we'll make a night of it!
