A Safe Bet

Tasty nibbles instead of high-stakes bluffs will be served at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for the 15th annual Celebrity Chefs Food Tasting and Auction at 7 p.m. A stellar roundup of local chefs will put their cards on the table for a good cause — the event benefits the Ann Storck Center, a nationally accredited nonprofit that serves 300 children and adults with severe and multiple developmental disabilities.

Visitors can nosh on samplings from some two dozen eateries, including Blue Martini, The Capital Grille, Emeril’s Miami Beach, Hard Rock Café, Jackson’s Steakhouse, Jazziz Bistro, Jimmie’s Chocolates, Lola’s on Harrison, Mancini’s, Prime Blue Grille, Samba Room, and The Chef’s Table. There’s no gamble here — the feast is guaranteed to delight taste buds at $175 per person. Order tickets by clicking www.annstorckcenter.org or calling 954-584-8000, ext. 372.
