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 $30per 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 Edgewood Children's Ranch.
Our next stop will be along Restaurant Row, at the wonderful Vines Grille & Wine Bar. Vines is an independently owned boutique restaurant offering exquisite dining in an intimate and chic atmosphere. Conveniently located in the heart of Orlando's "Restaurant Row" they feature live jazz nightly. Come experience for yourself the passion and dedication to the art of fine wine, food and music.

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.
