It was so much fun, let's have dinner again! This time down on the Willamette at Thirst Wine Bar & Bistro. Keeping the group small again to allow us to have a conversation. wink

Thirst Wine Bar & Bistro Owners (and spouses) Gary Kneski and Leslie Palmer are originally from New York. Gary from Long Island and Leslie from the Finger Lakes / Syracuse area. Both have enjoyed wine for many years, however fell in love with the wines of the Pacific NW when they moved here eleven years ago from Boston when Leslie took a corporate event & marketing position at Intel. Gary, who was a video producer for nine years in Charleston, SC, took wine-related classes, made wine, worked a local wineries and gave wine tours in between hi-tech sales jobs in Oregon.

Gary oversees all aspects of the great wine Thirst features and Leslie is the Chef. Trained by two adoring Grandmothers, Leslie has been enjoying cooking since she was a child. Although she cooks in an array of styles, her food has been called 'upscale comfort food' that is created specifically to pair well with wine. She focuses on local, fresh and organic ingredients. She cooks as gluten free as possible and loves a new challenge.

Because I am making a reservation with the restaurant, this is a Fixed RSVP event. Change in plans are understandable however please be as prompt as possible in updating your RSVP if your plans changes.
