EAT Logo

“As I ate the oysters…and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.”

Ernest Hemingway’s words from A Moveable Feast are a true testament to the intense power of food and drink. It’s in this same spirit that The War Memorial is delighted to introduce our new series of culinary and libations programs — EAT | Engage, Aspire, Taste.

Together with our series partner EdibleWOW, EAT brings together such industry leaders as Brut Detroit, Tito’s Vodka, Social Sushi, Bell's Brewery, Detroit City DistilleryThe Wine Counselor® Michael Schafer, and The War Memorial — showcasing the crème de la crème of culinary masterpieces, wine, and spirits.

Join us all year as we offer special classes, tasting programs, and unique insights into the world of cooking, wine, spirits — and socializing!
