Win two tickets to Dinner Party in Piedmont Park this Saturday

greystone_frontEvery other Friday, the guys from Top Flr host Dinner Party — a gathering of strangers around a dinner table in locations announced just prior to the event. It might take place in a private home, a warehouse, a high-rise condo or a park.

The one happening this Saturday, May 1,  is special, and I’ve got two tickets to give away. This benefit for the Piedmont Park Conservancy will host 200 people somewhere in the park (though I’m assuming not the dog run). Top Flr chef Shane Devereux has asked some of his colleagues (Hector Santiago from Pura Vida Tapas and Craig Richards from La Tavola, among others) to join him in preparing the food, which will largely come from local farms. Also on hand: five of the town’s top bartenders, including Greg Best from Holeman & Finch and Miles MacQuarrie from Leon’s Full Service, will mix the drinks. Michael McNeill, the former Ritz-Carlton Buckhead wine steward and the city’s only certified Master Sommelier, will oversee the wine selection.

So how do you get these two tickets?

We invite you to answer the following trivia questions correctly in the form provided and include a valid e-mail address and your phone number in the appropriate fields. It does not matter if you’re first. Any forms submitted after midnight tonight will not be counted. Winner will be drawn at random. Good luck!
