Days away ’til Harvest Noir Pop up Picnic

It’s back!  And we are back too…all of us in the Savvy Team are delighted to be the Sommeliers for this year’s Harvest Noir – the ultimate end-of-summer party & start-of-harvest ball in Ottawa. The date is set – Saturday September 7 – but the location is a BIG secret.  On the day, the venue for the all black ‘chic’ picnic will be revealed to all ticket holders by email.

Join us! Click to buy your Harvest Noir tickets & use promo code 2013SAVVY to receive 25% off.

Gather a groups of friends  of any age & dress in your lil black dress or sport a suit…or gents pull out your tux from the back of your closet as we all celebrate local food and fine Ontario wine at the picnic.  Harvest Noir last year was Canada’s 2nd-largest chic picnic, with 1,500 guests picnicking at Ottawa City Hall. This picture captured the fun (left to right in photo: Dixie, Locks, Debbie, Shawn & Debbie)

When the sun sets, the party will continue!  A fashion show featuring local designers and DJ TIMEKODE will have all of us on the dance floor all night long.

“Everyone dolls up to the nines as if is New Year’s Eve” commented Dixie who attended last year’s Harvest Noir for the first time.  And she has her picnic basket & black number ready to go again this year.

How to get ready for Harvest Noir? It’s easy!

1. Round up some friends and family (kids are welcome too).  Designate one person to be the organizer or ‘host’ (aka table captain).  Go to www.harvestnoir.com to buy tickets for  the Table Captain and tickets for each person in your group.   TIP: use promo code SAVVY2013 to receive discounts on your tickets.

2. Plan your picnic menu – it is a potluck extraordinaire.  Tables with black linens & chairs will be provided.  Your group will need to bring everything else. There are prizes for the best decorated table – and remember to keep the black theme in mind.

3. At noon on the day, the location of this over-the-top picnic is revealed to the guest list by email. That is your cue to put on the final touches to your meal, pack up your picnic baskets and head to the party! It will be a fun evening noshing & nibbling on homemade foods & celebrate the end of summer and start of the harvest with friends old and new.

To add to the ambiance, you will enjoy this gourmet dining experience, accompanied music by The Ottawa Jazz Orchestra.

And we have selected wines from Palatine Hill Estate Winery of Niagara-on-the-Lake to be served at the cash bar.  The wine selection is:

1812 Chardonnay VQA 2012

1812 Cabernet-Merlot VQA 2010

We’ll see you at this year’s Harvest Noir – It’s blast!
