Don't you love it when bloggers use their social media mojo for a great cause? Last week the lovely Isabel Kallman opened her home to NYC's top bloggers to share her passion for dance. The"Flights, Bites & Tights" event was made possible by ALDI and the cocktail party supported the Dance Theatre of Harlem.
ALDI is a supermarket that is making inroads in the NY area. The evening was a celebration of elegant entertaining...on budget. Sadly the dance performance was rained out, but spirits were not dampened (could have been all the delish wine that was pouring).
ALDI just opened a new store Harlem--its first Manhattan store, located at 517 East 117th St. in East River Plaza in East Harlem. With more than 1,200 stores in 32 states, ALDI is known for high-quality grocery items at unbeatable prices. More than 20 million customers each month save up to 50 percent* on their grocery bills, benefiting from the ALDI simple and streamlined approach to retailing.

ALDI's award-winning wines were perfect for the event are very well priced. ALDI offers incredible savings on these quality wines by partnering with winemakers from the most fertile grape producing regions around the world. My favorite from the evening was the Villa Malizia Pinot Grigio (Italy) 2010 '?? Floral and honeysuckle aromas accented by flavors of peach and pear. Pairs well with lighter meals, soft cheeses and seafood. 2012 Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships Award '?? 88 points, Silver Medal & Best Buy.
The evening happened to celebrate Isabel's love of Dance. She found a gret partner in ALDI and was able to make a synergistic event come to life. I met some of the enthusiastic troupe from Dance Theatre of Harlem. I hope to get to see them perform very soon. For more information on them visit dancetheatreofharlem.org/.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. Images from ALDI and Judy Tyrus of Dance Theatre of Harlem. We did get an enormous swag bag of food and wine from the event--including the most succulent pineapple I have ever eaten.
