One Week 'til BravoBravo!

Almost 40 different restaurants under one roof serving up samples of their signature dishes in an elegant atmosphere filled with great music and beautiful people all to benefit the Detroit Opera House. Really, where can you go wrong?

BravoBravo! is the Detroit Opera Houses's largest annual fundraiser, and is known to draw sold-out crowds of over 1,000 of metro Detroit's most fashionable culture enthusiasts. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, BravoBravo! is widely considered to be the cultural and social event of the year. And it's next Friday! Tickets are currently $95.00 but will go up in price to $105.00 on Monday, so get them now. Trust me when I tell you it is well worth every penny. Just check out this list of participating restaurants:

In addition to this, there are over 30 beverage sponsors (it's kind of like an open bar on speed), and there will be entertainment by the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, DJ Captn 20, jazz musicians in keeping with the vintage roarin' '20s jazz theme, and artists from Paxahau, Fusicology, and Funk Night. Truly a not-to-be-missed event, and for a good cause to boot.

I've had my dress picked out for months! (It has a lot of side ruching, which is good a disguising a belly bloated from over-eating.) I hope to see you there!
