Welcome to the second helping of Tuesday's Tidbits. Hope you are staying warm and safe on this snowy/chilly/icy day in Cleveland. Even though the weather outside may be frightful, there are plenty of delicious events coming up around Northeastern Ohio.
For starters, Cleveland's favorite food truck Dim and Den Sum will be offering in home and private cooking classes. Visit their website for more information.
Tomorrow evening, Bistro on Lincoln Park will be holding a Winter Wine Tasting event. $40 gives you a five course prix fixe dinner each carefully paired with a glass of wine. Reservations recommended.
Staying in Tremont, Parallax will be starting sushi and wine classes on February 21. Learn how to roll sushi and the best wine parings. Contact Parallax to reserve a spot.
As if Dante could not get any better, look for the opening of Ginko, a sushi restaurant beneath Dante to be opening soon.
Last thought on sushi, Chef Matthew Mytro, who prepared the tantalizing food served at last Wednesday's "Aphrodisiacs" will be holding his next "Naked Sushi" on March 24 at Suite Six.
Speaking of the Emerging Chefs, their next event will be held on February 23. "Sacrilicious" will feature the food of Chef Jeff Fisher of Touch Supper Club in a very unique venue.
For all of you craft beer lovers out there,Great Lakes Brewing Company tapped a brewpub exclusive Big Black Smoke porter this week. Looking ahead, The IX Center Beerfest will be held May 13-14. Check out the event's website or this great post from Cleveland Food and Brews Reviews.
February also brings a new Sandwich of the Month to Melt. This month's "The Dude Abides Melt" was inspired by the movie "The Big Lebowski". If you are more of a Molly Ringwald and Emilio Estivez fan, Melt will be offering "The Brat Pack Breakfast Club Melt" this weekend only to compliment their screening of the movie at Cedar Lee.
With all that being said, hopefully everyone is making their Valentine's Day plans for that special someone in your life. Cleveland has so many great, romantic places and they will fill up quickly around February 14. Some of those places will be featured on HIC next week. Don't forget to stop at Malley's or Lilly Handmade Chocolates to get some sweets for your sweet.
Until next time...follow your heart, fulfill your hunger.
