Supporting Your School and Loving Food and Wine? Sign Me Up!

Do you love food, beer and wine? Do you want to support one of Parkside’s graduate programs? Come join the Graduate Business School Alumni Association on Friday, April 17 from 7-10 p.m. at Casa Capri by eating, drinking and being merry. Robert Mitchell gave us all the details!

The event that takes place on Friday is entitled “Grill Meet” and is going to be held in the banquet room of Casa Capri. They will be serving a variety of different food including multiple different meats from salmon to beef tenderloin, grilled mussels and oysters, as well as finger foods and desserts. There will be beer featured from Rustic Road Brewery, which in itself is a selling point, and a range of wines for the tasting.

Robert Mitchell is an active member of the local Kenosha restaurant and bar scene. He runs an online blog entitled “Cork Meets Fork” in which he reviews restaurants, gives suggestions for food and wine pairings and shares recipes. He has been in the food industry for over thirty years, starting out in Boston before moving back to the Chicago area. He currently helps Wine Knot and Rustic Road Brewery with their liquor and wine selections along with special events for these two businesses in the downtown Kenosha area.

Mitchell also organizes for wine tasting trips and tours, and is currently preparing for a trip to France to give people a taste of all that their vineyards have to offer. He has teamed up with the Parkside Graduate Business School Alumni Association for a few years now, and this will be his fourth event that he helped organize for the university. Mitchell became involved when one of the founders of the organization, Jeremy Covey, motivated him to participate. The money that will be raised by tickets for the event will go towards scholarships for Parkside graduate students in the field of business.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door on the day of the event. There will be raffles with multiple different prizes, including a night at Grand Geneva resort, grilling tools and, of course, wine! One lucky scholarship winner will be announced during the event. So come on out and support your school and your fellow Parkside Rangers! Tickets can be purchased by calling (262) 331-4140 or by logging onto
