"So, what's on the menu?" you ask...

I just received the preliminary menu for the upcoming  An Evening Uncorked. I am so glad I already bought my ticket! Read more here about this February 6th event, to be held in The Botanical Center at Roger Williams Park.

OK - it's lunch time as I write this; I shouldn't tantalize you with talk of delicious food from some of RI's finest restaurants, and not spill the beans (ouch, bad pun), so I'll announce the menu.

These are the dishes our guest restaurants will be preparing for you. Each will be paired with just the right wines, courtesy of MS Walker.

(I will not be held responsible for your stomach growling or your mouth watering as you read on! Consider yourself forewarned.)

The collectible wines up for auction are also pretty amazing. The food editor at the statewide newspaper wrote a nice article about the wines, and includes a great photo of the bottles.
(Side note: where ever you see references to "Channel 36" in the story, don't worry, it means us - WSBE Rhode Island PBS. "Channel 36" was our old name before we changed it back in 2003.)

Join us on February 6th at 7 PM.
