Eat and Greet

Meeting like-minded folks at your neighborhood watering hole can be a gamble. And blowing your mad money on bar tabs? Well, that just doesn’t seem savvy in these patchy economic times. The solution is easy: direct your funds towards rewarding events, like Morikami’s swank soiree, Taste of the East: A Culinary Passport to Asia.

In addition to spending a lovely evening in the Morikami’s perfectly polished landscape, you’ll sample Asian-inspired food and cocktails from area eateries like SOBA Sushi Lounge, the Westchester Country Club, and Blue Martini. Also, since the event is being crafted by Taishi, the museum’s arts’ loving organization of young professionals, you know you’ll be surrounded by other like-minded do-gooders — and we all know that friendships forged around food are the longest lasting.

The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is located at 4000 Morikami Park Rd. in Delray Beach. Tickets will run you $45. Call 561-495-0233, or visit morikami.org.
