Corks and Forks is a collaboration between The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography, The Canton Club Event Center, Onesto Historic Lofts, Elevage Wine Advisors, and Canton Food Tours.
This progressive downtown tour takes you through 4-5 amazing spaces, is wine education focused, and ends with a delicious multi-course meal at the Canton Club Event Center.
We start at the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography. Grab a glass of wine, nibble on appetizers, stroll around the expansive gallery and relax after work. Dave Baloun, a seasoned wine educator tells us what he is pouring. Gallery owner Tim Belden gives us a tour of the re-purposed building and amazing photography collection. Next we step behind the scenes and into a space more fitting for New York City or Chicago. Here Dave pours reds and whites and we get into wine education a little deeper. You might want to stay here all evening, but the name of the next stop just might make you move out of that comfy chair.
The Onesto Hotel is full of intrigue. Now open to the public for events after being shuttered for decades, enjoy your tour through this repurposed building: walk up the grand staircase, run your fingers over the historic elevator doors, take in the breathtaking details of the vaulted ceiling, arched windows, and recently exposed floors of the original banquet hall.
Our final destination is The Canton Club Event Center, high atop Chase Tower with views overlooking the city. Here we enjoy a multi-course meal and dessert, all appropriately paired with wine.
Corks And Forks is $65.00/person. Ticket price includes a progressive dinner and guided city tour with four stops, multiple food and wine pairings, shuttle transportation at the end of the tour if needed, taxes, a take-home goodie bag, and a memorable experience you won’t soon forget. Space is limited.
