Address: 17625 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, Ohio 44107

Program: Please join us for cocktails, conversation and a chance to congratulate Chef Jill Vedda, who was one of two Cleveland chefs – both women! – who were semi-finalists this year for a prestigious James Beard Award!
This is a fun, informal gathering. Drop by when you can, between the hours of 5:30 to 7:30, enjoy a drink, network with your fellow dames and depart as your schedule demands. Last year's happy hour turnout was the best ever! Let's see if we can do it again. Please plan to join us at Salt, as we welcome summer, renew our bonds, and congratulate one of the city's most notable chefs.

Cost: All drinks and appetizers are pay-as-you-go.
