Today’s the last day before the Seasonably Chic Showcase! WOOHOO! I’m so excited!
Now, I’ve told you all about the mens, womens and kids fashions and gifts that’ll be there at the showcase. But I haven’t really talked about the food. The yummy, delicious, mouth-watering, drooling-a-little-thinking-about-it food that will be there.
Frisch’s is our title sponsor of the event so they’re providing all the tasty treats. When I first met with the marketing manager there, Karen, we discussed having pie tastings. I thought… mmmmm… cold day… burning lots of calories holding shopping bags… perfect time for a piece of pumpkin pie, right?
She loved the idea… so much so that not only did Karen decide to donate 100 pieces of Frisch’s famous pumpkin pie to be handed out at the event, but she also donated 100 breakfast sandwiches, 75 spicy spuds, and 100 salads.
Some of the food will be catering the “Botox & Brunch” that Kurtzman Plastic Surgery is putting on (sorry, it’s sold out!), but the rest will be given out at the Frisch’s booth at the event for you to taste test!
The Cincy Chic staff and I actually just held one of our weekly meetings we usually have at the office, at a Frisch’s instead. Karen even came to meet my staff! It was so fun! She’s been there for more than 30 years, so she had some great history to share with us.
She told us how the drive-thru window is actually an evolution from the drive-in restaurant days. Karen said that the pumpkin pie is made at the local Frisch’s commissary. Oh, and she also said the pie recipe was created more than 40 years ago and remains a super guarded secret!
All this talk about this pie, now I really can’t wait to eat some tomorrow! They will be doing the tastings and then also taking pie reservation orders ($8.45 for a pie) if you want to get one before Thanksgiving! I love doing that and then trying to play it off at Thanksgiving like I made it. My mom is pretty gullible so she usually falls for it at first. Then everyone reminds her that mine would be a lot less tasty and probably a little deformed. haha!
See you tomorrow! I’ll be the one with all the shopping bags scarfing down a big piece of pie! : )
The Seasonably Chic Showcase will be on November 6th at The Pheonix downtown from 10 am to 3 pm. This event brings 40 of the Tri-State’s best boutiques and vendors–for women, men, children, and pets–all under one roof for one day of spectacular shopping! The best thing about it? It’s free to get in! Just bring a canned good for the Freestore food bank! Click Here to RSVP!
