Attention: Foodies!

Saturday, April 27, presents a "shouldn't miss" event for foodies to sample succulent gourmet dishes prepared by chefs from some of New England's finest restaurants. To sweeten the deal and tingle the palette, the dishes - created just for this event - are paired with wines from international and domestic vineyards - all under one roof, and all at one reasonable donation

The event is An Evening Uncorked! and will be held at the Pawtucket Armory, 172 Exchange Street in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The Champagne and raw bar reception at 6 p.m. is sold out, sorry, but the epicurean tour begins at 7 p.m. (Better get your tickets now!)

The 11 participating restaurants are Blaze East Side RestaurantThe Capital GrilleCinderella RestaurantDavid Burke Prime SteakhouseEleven Forty Nine RestaurantFleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Just Ellen's, Inc., LaSalle BakeryPane e Vino RistorantePot Au Feu, and Trafford Restaurant. The wines will be poured by MS WalkerRhode Island Distributing Company, LLC, and provided by private donors; craft beer is courtesy of McLaughlin & Moran, Inc. Is your mouth watering yet?

The video below uses footage taken at last year's An Evening Uncorked! event. What a great time it was. We're looking forward to another great event this year. Richard Carbotti of Perfect Surroundings is decorating the Armory, so you know everything will look and feel glorious. 

Great food, fine wine, enchanted setting... Bring your friends and come make new ones - and part of the proceeds of your $100 ticket helps support the quality local and national programming on WSBE Rhode Island PBS. What's not to love about this?

The only thing that could be missing is you, if you don't get your ticket in time. So, what are you waiting for?
