I like food. A lot. But I don’t know how to cook, so I rely heavily on living in a community with access to a variety of restaurants in order to keep myself adequately fed. Luckily for me, Metro Lansing has plenty of delicious options. From Middle Eastern to Cuban and Italian to Thai, Lansing boasts ethnic cuisine from around the globe. From breakfast through dessert, I’m set.
So naturally, I am really looking forward to an upcoming event called Forks & Corks. The Promotions Committee of Downtown Lansing Inc. is producing this event for food lovers and wine lovers alike. The upscale evening will take place in the suite level of Cooley Law School Stadium on March 27. Each suite will feature a dish from one of Lansing’s top dining spots paired with a fine wine. Guests will get to sample from several of the region’s best restaurants without leaving the stadium.
This is the second year of the event, and although last year was a blast, this year is going to be even better. Lexus of Lansing is the new presenting sponsor of Forks & Corks, and they’re bringing a few surprises with them. They’re rolling out the red carpet (literally), so get ready to experience the ballpark in a whole new way.
You’ll see me at Forks & Corks on March 27 sampling dishes and planning which restaurants to visit in the following weeks. Last year I learned a lot about wine pairing – I had never put much thought into how to pair food with wine before, but each wine complimented the dish so perfectly.
You can find additional information about the event, including a list of participating restaurants and a link to purchase tickets, at forksandcorkslansing.org.
The 5:01 is looking for guest bloggers to share their experiences on the benefits of living, working and playing in the greater Lansing area.
