Restaurants Emphasize City Pride and Uniqueness at Cleveland Host Committee’s Welcome Event

CLEVELAND (July 16, 2016) – The Cleveland 2016 Host Committee today released a video that recognizes the many local restaurants and caterers that are participating in the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee’s Welcome Party, “Rock the Night in CLE,” on Sunday, July 17. The restaurant community’s engagement and support underscores the Host Committee’s message that showcasing Cleveland to Convention guests and media is about pride, not politics.

The video, which features Chef Jonathon Sawyer, will be shown at the event and highlights Cleveland’s eclectic and unique culinary scene. Sawyer, along with Izzy Schachner from strEAT Mobile Bistro and others, led the effort to assemble the collection of restaurants, food trucks, caterers and baristas for the Welcome Party. In the video, Sawyer discusses the planning and collaboration needed for a successful event, and what it means for Cleveland.

“It’s not political at all when you’re talking about celebrating your city and putting it in the national limelight,” Sawyer said. “Whether it’s the Cavaliers’ championship, the Gay Games, the RNC – we’re getting an opportunity to show the world what our city is all about.”

Thirty-five restaurants and 23 food trucks will serve more than 10,000 guests at North Coast Harbor on Sunday at the Welcome Party. Guests will be able to sample themed and specialty foods from the likes of The Pierogi Lady, Urban Farmer, Brewnuts and Betty’s Bomb Ass Burgers, to name a few.

“The support of some of Cleveland’s finest food and beverage institutions has been amazing,” said David Gilbert, president and CEO, Cleveland 2016 Host Committee. “We at the Host Committee are grateful for the restaurant community’s participation in this event. We are excited to share with our guests what locals already know – that Cleveland is a proud, collaborative city with an exceptional culinary scene.”

An opening party is a Convention tradition where the host city welcomes guests to kick off the week and enjoy unique aspects of the city. As such, the Welcome Party is a private event for credentialed guests only.

So You’re Selling, It’s Time To Party

You have spent a longtime marketing your property and now the hard work is over! You found a buyer and the deposit is confirmed, contracts exchanged and you feel a great relief.

So what do you feel like doing now that that is out of the way? Party of course! You want to make it a good, so you have invited over all your best friends and family, so that you can reminisce together about all the good times you shared together in your home.

Fotolia_61755519_S.1I know when we were forced to sell our property, due to financial hardship we didn’t exactly feel like celebrating much but you know what we did just the same. We had raised our kids there, they weren’t quite grown up and left just yet but our eldest was 18 and our youngest just 11.

Now back to the party to end all parties, (well at least at this address!), you need to plan well and make sure you enjoy the event. Too many times have I found myself as the host simply run of my feet, trying to provide a great time for my guests, only to find I didn’t have such a great time. Well you know what the remedy to this is, yes I am talking about caters!

Catering Your Event Will Save Your Sanity!

Just say that out loud. “Catering your event will save your sanity!”. Then repeat it over and over, until it sinks in. I am sure, it will cost a bit more to have your party or function catered by a professional team, like Chilterns Catering but you know what, just remind yourself about why you want to have this party in the first place. Yep that’s right you want to celebrate and have some fun. I mean after all you have been through in organising the marketing, including the open for inspections, the endless stream of people tromping through your house, the tyre kicker offers, the flyers and brochures, the real estate for sale sign out front. Wow what a lot of hassle, but you know what it was worth because you got the sale.
