Men In Black gala 'poetic affair of food'

The Blade newspaper offered a delectable preview of the meal being planned for Men In Black: Opera Gala 2015.

"The palate is being pleased along with the senses of sound and sight — you have good-looking men, who are impeccably dressed in black tie attire (as well as the guests) — explained Suzanne Rorick, Toledo Opera executive director, and gala co-chairman Susan Allan Block."
