Moroccan BBQ with Bodega Ruca Malen @ The Fez in Stamford

Yes I know it's been awhile since our last meetup event. So I've made sure to plan a great one. Let's get together to kick start summer with a unique Moroccan BBQ at The Fez in Stamford. We will be joined by a very special guest, Ricardo Allejandro Valero, export director of Bodega Ruca Malen. This award winning winery is in the located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina, arguably where the best malbec in the world grows!

Our event begins at 6pm with a happy hour mix & mingle featuring the Yauquen line of wines from Ruca Malen along with a selection of Moroccan tapas. You'll have a chance to catch up with old friends, meet new people and learn about Argentine wines by chatting with Ricardo.

We'll sit for dinner around 7pm which be served family-style and feature the Reserva line of wines from Ruca Malen. See below for our delicious menu!

    How do I give you the $55. I don't see a place on the computer to put it in.

    don't be afraid to RSVP yes just because you have to pre-pay to confirm. if something comes up and you can't make it i will refund you 100% as long as you give me reasonable notice (1 day or more please). having a definite headcount makes it easier for the restaurant to prepare enough food and order enough wine. :)
