Hello Fellow Wine Enthusiasts,

I have information to share about the Theatre Café Wine Dinner. First, you can view the poll results on our web site: There were 19 people that responded to the poll. On the question of food price, the majority of people, 47% chose the $30-$40 range for food.  On the question of wine pairing, 63% of people chose greater than $30.

The chef at the Theatre Café is crafting an exquisite 5 course gourmet menu for us for $40 per person. In building the menu, the chef is going to take into account these dietary restrictions: 1 lactose allergy, 2 nut allergies, 1 lamb allergy, 1 vegetarian, 1 gluten free, and 1 pescetarian with the understanding that “the entire menu be created equally with the same culinary creativity regardless of dietary restrictions.”

The restaurant is able to accommodate 20 people and we are planning on having the dinner on Saturday May 16th – so save the date! Those that responded to the poll will be given first priority. You do not have to be an AWS member to attend this event.

I spoke with Jim at O’Hara’s Fine Wines on the wine pairing. A $30-$35 per person budget is doable to pair quality wines with the 5 courses.

Dessert: the Theatre Café will allow us to bring our own dessert.
