We're celebrating our August issue with a party at The Rossi, and we'd love for you to join us.

Our next issue is all about the best restaurants in Columbus, and so the first 30 people to tell us about their very favorite restaurant in city will get a spot (plus a guest) on our invite list. To enter, please email Shelley Mann at smann@columbuscrave.com.

It's going to be an amazing evening. The Rossi's new chef Andrew Smith will be serving a menu of heavy appetizers featuring favorite Rossi dishes as well as a sneak peek at some of the dishes from his new fall menu.

Smith's revamped Rossi menu has been getting lots of buzz, especially the witty and delicious Pork and Beans entree pictured at top--huge corona beans topped with a brined, bone-in pork chop.

The fantastic bar staff will also be creating signature cocktails for us for the evening. It'll be a great way to get acquainted with the exciting things happening at one of our very favorite spots in the city. Hope you can join us!

Update: Thanks, everyone, for entering! We have our 30 winners, and you will receive your invitation via email if you made the cut!
