  1. I love food, love to cook and who wouldn’t enjoy a night out with friends in support of local artists and chefs!!! I have shared this on my fb page as well.

  2. I want to attend this event because it is a combination of art and food, which is incredible. Come hungry, leave inspired, yes please!

  3. I would love to attend. I think that The Carnegie is a great venue for a party and art. I was there for a YELP! party a few years ago and loved it. I have also shared this link on my facebook page.

  4. I would love to go to this event! I enjoy watching cooking shows but nothing is as good as being able to learn and experience it first hand. It would be a great way to further culture myself.

  5. I would love to go this event because not only does it celebrate local chefs, but it creates a unique event by creating art with this food!

  6. I want to take my kids! We are trying to expose them to the fiber things in life as well as expand their food menu. This is a double whammy!

  7. 1. I’d like to go try some food from some new local restaurants and see how they can creatively present the food.

    2. I already like the library on Facebook

    3. I follow the blog under the name “Really Covington”

    4. I’m sharing this on Facebook.


  8. I have always wanted to attend this event! Each year we’ve had some sort of conflict where we couldn’t attend, but this year we’re on a budget and can’t get tix….a Disney vaca this year is tying up extra money 😉

  9. I would love to check out Art of Food because every year I say I am going to go and every year something comes up preventing me from doing it! This year if I had tickets I would make sure to go! Also, I worked in food service and fine dining for years…I love seeing unique presentations of food!

  10. I moved back to Northern KY on Feb 10th after six years living on the coast of NE Florida. I just finished culinary school and I believe this social event would be a networking treat of the great culinary delights Northern KY offers. Welcome home Mona!
