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, the city’s newest luxury destination featuring 250 ultra-modern guestrooms and suites, 20 fully equipped hotel residences and a 35,000 sq. ft Conference and Event facility, featuring a 16,000 sq. ft Grand Ballroom. Just steps from The Galleria and River Oaks District, The Post Oak Hotel caters to business and leisure travelers alike.
Guests are invited to mingle alongside Master of Ceremonies Sam Malone, long time radio host, Keels & Wheels supporter, and owner of 512 New Media, Houston’s cutting-edge media creation company, 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 Busmire and 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.
This event is made possible with the support from sponsors City of Seabrook, Bay Area Regional Medical Center and MCM Worldwide.
The Keels & Wheels Uncorked event was established in 2009 as a means of raising awareness for Keels & Wheels Concours d'Elegance, which will take place this year on May 5-6, 2018 at Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas. Keels & Wheels Uncorked takes place each March prior to the Spring showcase event, and has become one of the major sources of funding for Boys & Girls Harbor. To date, Keels & Wheels has assisted in raising more than $1.7 million for its partnering charities.
