Elegant and casual. Intimate and sociable. Epicurean and philanthropic. An Evening Uncorked! is all that and more.
The annual event and auction celebrating fine wine and great food is a different and uniquely satisfying experience to benefit Rhode Island PBS. An Evening Uncorked! will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at the historic Pawtucket Armory on Exchange Street in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
The festivities begin at 6 p.m. with a Champagne and raw bar reception courtesy of Pommery Champagne and Providence Oyster Bar. The epicurean tour begins at 7 p.m. when chefs from Southern New England's top restaurants will prepare tasting-sized portions of succulent dishes and desserts paired with complementary wines. To date, participating restaurants are 1149 Restaurant, Blaze Restaurant, The Capital Grille, Cinderella Restaurant, David Burke Prime Steakhouse, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse &; Wine Bar, Just Ellen's, Inc., LaSalle Bakery, Pot Au Feu, and Trafford Restaurant. A wide selection of fine international and domestic wines will be provided by MS Walker, Rhode Island Beverage, and private donors; craft beer courtesy of McLaughlin & Moran, Inc.
The silent auction, open for bidding throughout the food and wine tasting, will offer collectible wines, beverage and bar accessories, and fine dining and getaway packages.
In an evening full of sociability, fun, and elegance, the highlight of the event is the live auction of rare and fine vintages and exclusive dining, entertaining, and travel experiences.
