You Pair it! Bring the perfect wine for any 1 of these 3 dishes - BYOB or Taste

You be the Sommelier. I will bring 3 dishes and you bring a wine that you think will pair best with one of these 3 dishes.

1st dish -Cold, Smoked Salmon (Wild Caught, Alaska)

2nd Dish - Pulled Pork Barbecue in a sweet, smoky sauce

3rd Dish - New York Style Cheese Cake (Plain, tart not overly sweet)

The objective here is to bring a wine that you think will pair beautifully with one of the 3 dishes above. You be the Sommelier tonight.

We will taste the food and wine together, whichever wine pairs the best (Brings out the best of both the food and the wine), will win the pot.

$5 if you bring a bottle, $15 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner, (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got to taste at least 10 wines, plus enjoy nice plates of exotic cheeses and Charcuterie and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the wine that pairs best, will take home the pot. If we get 20 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.

Think you know how to pair food and wine? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

So, Bring a bottle, throw in $5 to the pot or $15 to just come and taste.
