The Detroit Lions will host the inaugural event at Ford Field Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
The strolling wine and food event features more than 20 of metro Detroit’s top restaurants as local chefs prepare a signature dish from their restaurant for guests to sample and then suggest a pairing with wine.
The evening also includes live music and meet-and-greet opportunities with Detroit Lions players, coaches and alumni.
The night kicks off with a VIP reception at 6 p.m. and continues with general admission at 7:30 p.m.
VIP guests will enjoy a private cocktail reception, featuring Sugar House mixologists, in the Detroit Lions locker room and have early access to each of the chef stations.
