Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance hosts 9th Annual Uncorked

 

The 9th Annual Keels & Wheels Uncorked event is scheduled for Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Bentley Showroom of Post Oak Motor Cars, located at the all-new Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston.

Guests are invited to mingle alongside Master of Ceremonies Sam Malone, long time radio host, Keels & Wheels supporter, and owner of 512 New Media for an elegant evening of fine wines and exceptional food presented by some of Landry’s Inc. finest restaurants.

The participating Landry’s restaurants are among the most well-known and significant in Houston, including; The Post Oak Hotel, Mastro’s Steakhouse, Willie G’s Seafood and Steaks, Grotto Ristorante, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood and Steaks, and Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse.

Participating restaurants are assigned a classic automobile, or vintage wooden boat. The chef of each restaurant then selects a specific wine that they believe matches the classic automobile or boat. Each chef then prepares a custom hors d’oeuvre that is paired with the wine to complete the epicurean experience for attendees to sample.

The “Uncorked” event will also feature luxury items and experiences in the form of a live and silent auction. Auction Co-Chairs Patty Peeples Busmireand Karen Deguerin invite guests to bid on lavish packages including fine wines, spa getaways, hotel and resort stays, dinner certificates, autographed collectibles and much more.  Proceeds from the event and both auctions benefit the Boys & Girls Harbor
