As you know, every September the best local area restaurants put together prix-fixe menus and honor them in addition to their regular menus throughout the month; and they donate a portion of their proceeds to charity. This year is no exception. All 3-course meals are $33per person, and look exceptional. This gives us a chance to try places that may normally be out of our financial reach, but a great cross-selection of what each venue has to offer. One dollar from each meal will be donated to this year's charity, The Ronald McDonald house!
The Funky Monkey Wine Company is a relaxed neighborhood wine bar and eatery with a location near downtown Orlando on Mills Avenue. This "stylish yet unconventional" wine bar serves 130-wines by the bottle, 40-wines by the glass in beautiful Diva Glassware and offers diners an Asian-American influence. With an extensive menu offering delectable salads, unique appetizers, entrees ranging from Ostrich to Sushi and wine and cheese pairings, everything about this place is fun and pleasantly Funky Monkey.

As with all of our recent events, we will send out a confirmation request 5-7 days before the event - if you do not confirm by the deadline (24hours before the event), your RSVP will be changed to a no. Again, we are trying to be fair to the group members and the restaurant management by trying to cut down on the last-minute cancellations and/or no-shows. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
