Have you ever wondered which fork to use? How to butter your roll, or what to do if you drop your napkin? These simple etiquette questions can strike fear in your heart during a business dinner or important social occasion.
Whether you are trying to close a deal over a meal or impress your date with how you ate, Eatiquette is the event for you. And hell, even if you are a slob for life, there's a champagne reception and a four-course meal.
The Eatiquette dinner will take place this Wednesday, April 24, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Toro Toro at the InterContinental Hotel. Local etiquette expert and founder of Suited for Success and Dress for Success Miami, Sonia Jacobson, will host. She'll over topics ranging from international customs to how to handle a mouth full of gristle with grace.
Expect Toro Toro's signature ahi tuna ceviche, along with a fresh Homestead farms salad, tender filet mignon and a decadent flourless hazelnut chocolate cake with apricot compote and sour cream ice cream.
Tickets are $95 each, or $75 each if you purchase more than one. Ticket price includes the champagne reception and hors d'oeuvres, a four-course meal accompanied with red or white wine, and tax and gratuity. A portion of the proceeds for this event will benefit Dress for Success Miami.
Registration ends today. For more details and to purchase tickets, visit eatiquette.eventbrite.com.
