Three things that I love:
1. 4 Rivers Smokehouse – I used to work for 4 Rivers Smokehouse Catering back in 2015.
2. Winter Park – I went to elementary school, middle school and high school in Winter Park.
3. Supporting charity events – who doesn’t?!
Combine all those three things that I love and what do you get? COWS ‘N CABS.
Central Florida’s annual Cows ‘n Cabs returned for its seventh year on Saturday, November 11 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. Hosted by 4 Rivers Smokehouse founder John Rivers and ABC Fine Wine & Spirits’ David Larue, the event benefited the After-School All-Stars and Elevate Orlando. This 21+ up charity event returned to 150 North New York Avenue in Winter Park’s Central Park West Meadow and featured more than 30 of Central Florida’s top restaurants including 4 Rivers Smokehouse, The Ravenous Pig, Hunger Street Tacos, Holler & Dash, and Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen.
