Cattle Baron’s Ball and Recent Restaurant Reviews

Cattle Baron’s Ball will Feature a Herd of Great Local Chefs

 Cattle Baron 2013


Time to polish up those clod kickers and iron the gingham — the Cattle Baron’s Ball is coming up soon.

If you’re not familiar with the CBB, you should be. This is the annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that features an array of terrific area restaurants. I’ve attended in the past, and it’s one of my favorite events because it’s a lot of fun for a really good cause. It takes place at Rosen Shingle Creek, and the Rosen gang always does a bang-up job. Or maybe that should be a shoot-’em-up job. They go all out is what I’m trying to say.

This year the Cattle Baron’s Ball will be Saturday, April 13, from 6 p.m. until, as the invitation says, “the cows come home.” (Please be advised that the current cow curfew is midnight.) Rosen Shingle Creek is at 9939 Universal Blvd., Orlando.

Here’s the best part: you get to wear that sort of Westerny outfit you bought while you were on vacation in Arizona or New Mexico thinking that you’d look great in it but then realized it would just look silly in Florida so it’s sitting in the closet in the guest bedroom. All attendees are encouraged to dress in “upscale Western,” which is a lot easier to figure out than business casual.

Tickets are $250 per person — remember, this is a fundraiser for the Cancer Society — and that gets you access to all the food and beverages all evening. Some of the restaurants scheduled to be there include Jack’s Place, A Land Remembered, Everglades, BB Kings, K Restaurant and Wine Bar, Emeril’s Orlando, Cuba Libre, Fogo de Chao, Prickly Pear Steakhouse, Uno’s, Cress Restaurant, Empress Sissi, CS Brisket Truck, Hawk’s Landing Steakhouse, and Cusiniers Catering. And with a name like Cattle Baron’s Ball, the event is bound to feature a goodly amount of beef.

Entertainment, too, with Showdown featuring Jaimie Roberts, a country band that will keep things hopping all night.

I plan on being there; I hope you’ll join me. Click this link for more information about the Cattle Baron’s Balland to purchase your tickets.

No Fooling: Drawing Monday for TWO Restaurant Gift Certificates — and You’re Already Entered!

I haven’t given away any restaurant gift certificates lately and I’m starting to get a little antsy. So I’m going to have a drawing on Monday, April 1, for TWO gift certificates: one for Luma on Park or Prato and one for Hilton Orlando, home of Spencer’s for Steaks & Chops. Both certificates are worth $50.

As with all of my giveaways, the winner will be chosen by random drawing from among the list of my e-letter recipients — so that means you! It’s my way of saying thanks for being a flog follower.
