There are a lot of events in this town that combine good food and good times for a good cause. But one of the most fun has to the Taste of the Browns, now in its 15th year.
On Monday, September 9 from 6-9pm, First Energy Stadium will be filled with delicious bites from restaurants such as Deagan’s Kitchen and Bar, The Greenhouse Tavern, Momocho/El Carnicero, and Pier W; plentiful adult beverages; current and former Browns players such as Joe Thomas and Al “Bubba” Baker; and incredible silent and live auction items.
All this frenetic fun is to benefit the Cleveland Foodbank. Last year’s Taste of the Browns raised over $140,500, which equated to nearly half a million meals distributed over six Ohio counties.
Still not convinced this is somewhere you need to be? Check out my recap of last year’s event!
Tickets are on sale now for $175 for general admission and $250 for VIP tickets. On Friday, August 9, you can take advantage of a special one-day sale with $150 general admission tickets.
