This weekend’s events are particularly family-oriented, so tell the babysitter she’s off the hook and bring the kids out for a fun (and food) filled weekend. On second thought, bring the babysitter along anyway, you don’t want to miss the wine and beer available at these sweet soirées.
Come As You Are Wine Dinner “A Taste of France” at The Grape
Foray into the French countryside at The Grape this Thursday for their three-course bistro menu with selected French wine pairings for each.
