An Event of Olympic Proportions (Summer 2012)

TCWE Presents an Olympic Sized Event!
The 2012 Summer Olympics are right around the corner! Let's celebrate in style with a Summer Olympic themed food and wine event at Mike Reineke's, on August 4th at 6:00 PM.

It is back, the event that took the Gold, Silver and Bronze. Please join us and please bring along the below form with your bottle of wine and something to share, to go along with the Olympian that you will be honoring. Please choose a wine and food from the Olympian of your choice, home region. Please do a little homework and find out some interesting facts to share with fellow wine lovers about the athlete you have chosen. Like maybe the fact that their mother woke up every morning with them and made them a huge plate of spaghetti before heading off to swim practice. Or the fact that this particular Olympian worked on the vineyard at one point and would race from one end to the other and decided that they had some skills and wanted to participate in the hurdles. . . it may be something as simple as the fact that this particular Olympian eats this dish before every competition. Are there sporting events that you don't know much about? What about doing a little research into beach volleyball?

Lets hope for nice weather and maybe we can have our own game of Badminton or Volleyball?

Since this is the competitive season, there will be a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal given out for both food and wine as well as a little competition to see who can find out the most about the athletes that participants that night have chosen. So, put your thinking cap on, do your homework and let the games begin!
