TCWE Presents an Olympic Sized Event!
The 2010 Winter Olympics are here! Let's celebrate in style with a Winter Olympic themed food and wine event at Carol Barton's, on February 19th at 6:30 PM.

It is back, the event that took the Gold, Silver and Bronze. The event that goes down in the record books for having the best karaoke singers. The event where we watched Michael Phelps earn yet another gold as we rooted him on. . . .it was probably from all of us yelling at the screen!

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 father sharpened their skates on a regular basis, which is how he became the Olympic Speed Skater he is today. 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 luge. . . 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 the ski jumping?

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!
