Tonight is the Really Long Table event and all the tickets to attend have been sold.
What is it?
The City Palate magazine (http://www.citypalate.ca) is celebrating its 20th anniversary. As part of the celebrations this event was created to raise funds for the Red Cross Flood Relief fund. It is a five-course meal with food and wine pairings set up along a full block of Stephen Avenue Mall that the Art Gallery of Calgary is located on. It starts at 6:00pm tonight and will have enough seats for 240 people.
Officially the seven restaurants involved are Blink; Catch & The Oyster Bar; Charcut; Divino; Teatro; The Belvedere; The Cellar and the Trib Steakhouse. No doubt there are others well and the food will be delicious.
It should be an interesting event similar in some ways to the Diner en Blanc earlier this summer. It is always a good thing to add a fundraising purpose to an event such as this.
