GIVEAWAY: Tickets and Cocktails to Strathmore’s tART Event on October 27 – Moms Night Out and Exclusive Discount Code

Mark your calendars, call your friends and get your tickets NOW to attend the year’s best night out:

tART at Strathmore on Thursday October 27

A night of “Art with zing, music with spark and tangy treats. “

Beginning at 6:30 p.m in the Music Center at Strathmore, this fall arts fundraiser celebrates the power of the small, but sassy—the adventurous, the new, the offbeat and cheeky. Guests will be immersed in art as it’s being made and will incite real-time music creations by Strathmore’s Artists in Residence and local artists.

Electronica musician Yoko K. will create the soundtrack of the evening, looping guest soundbites into a continually evolving, organic music score. A large scale, site-specific installation will take shape at the hands of Wilmer Wilson IV as guests mingle. Additionally the live music performances will be top-notch: a mashup of live music from blues rock outfit The Daryl Davis Band, Gypsy jazz queen Mary Alouette and R&B crooner Jay Hayden.

Here’s one of my favorite features of the night: Stephanie Potter Corwin will capture the energy of the evening with guest glamour shots in her photo booth, projected live onto large screens throughout the party and e-mailed to revelers as mementos.

The food and drinks menu is really incredible. Dinner, hors d’oeuvres and open bar drinks are completely included in the reasonable ticket price. In case you are as food and beverage obsessed as I am, here is the run-down of the menu and signature cocktails.

The passed special cocktail will be a St. Germain, made with champagne and St. Germain liqueur, “the first liqueur in the world created in the artisanal French manner from freshly handpicked elderflower blossoms.”

Dinner will include

  • mini foie gras-stuffed hamburgers with charred tomato catsup
  • seared salmon with mushroom risotto
  • stuffed chicken breast with red pepper and goat cheese
  • pumpkin ravioli in a sage cream sauce topped with shaved parmesan
  • roasted tomato, baby artichoke and gorgonzola cheese tart with gourmet greens and light vinaigrette
  • braised short ribs with Yukon gold mashed potatoes

I don’t know about you, but I personally will not eat that well probably the rest of the year…and that is counting Thanksgiving and Christmas. And I will still have to find room to save for the dessert of chocolate ganache tartlettes, lemon tarts, passion fruit cupcakes with caramel buttercream and mini whoopie pies.

There will also be a fun martini raffle: you throw in $25 for a signature tART Appletini plus a costume piece of jewelry you wear all night and keep, and then you are entered for a chance to win the real thing — an oxidized silver diamond and pearl macramé bracelet valued at $750 from contemporary jeweler Amethyst..

You can also score some great deals on indulgent delights during the live and silent auctions, with Rolex watches, spa treatments, getaways to New York, chic shopping and more.

DISCOUNT – Just $75 for dinner, drinks, entertainment and a sparkling night to remember
