Thank you for a terrific evening!
Thank you to all of the chefs, mixologists and exhibitors from around the state who participated in the 2013 Food Schmooze Martini Competition on Thursday, June 27 at Farmington Gardens. We could not have done it without you. And thank you to everyone who came out to support this one-of-a-kind fundraiser. We loved having you there and hope you had as much fun as we did!
Congratulations to our winners:
