'Over a Glass' & 'Four and a Bottle' show taping, drinking and eating
When: Sunday, December 6, 2009
Where: Mission Grill Restaurant, 1835 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Time: 12 noon and 4PM (two different seatings)
For those of you that remember the ridiculously priced Wine Sessions, 10 glasses for $20, that we had over at Mantra/Bar Amalfi, we're back, but in a different way. Wine guy Zachary M.C. Harris has brought food guy, Chef Al Pars (Rococo, Circa, Guru, Oberon, Zanzibar Blue, Warmdaddy's, NXNW,) in on two of his television projects, and this is our first day taping episodes.
We're taking over Mission Grill restaurant on December 6th, 2009 and having two seatings, and taping a total of six episodes between both shows. Each seating will compose two episodes of Over a Glass and one episode of Four and a Bottle.
In Over a Glass, Zach will bring wine to which Al will pair the food. All in attendance will be seated and enjoy each course and be interviewed as to their reactions and/or impressions on the wine and the food. Several people will be chosen to sit at the main table and be the focus of the dining experience.
In Four and a Bottle, four chefs will each construct a meal on the fly given a glass of wine to taste. Several audience diners will be chosen to participate, being served both the wine and small plates of all four creations.
The first seating will start at twelve noon and feature five wonderful wines that I was introduced to that come from the country of Chile. These are some vivacious reds that will knock your socks off. The second seating will start at four in the afternoon, and the theme is wine seduction, with the focus being on bubbly (sparkling wine) and dessert wine. We might even throw in some chocolate!
Summarily, all in attendance will enjoy five glasses of wine, three tapas, one entrée and one dessert. The price is $50 per person, and group discounts are available. For those of you that have attended past events, you know that you get your money's worth, and in this, you'll also be on our shows (5 glasses of good wine would run you at least $40 not including tax and tip; 3 small plates, an entree and a dessert would easily cost you about the same or more; you do the math and look at the bargain).
For more information, you can call me at 215-474-1911 or email me at email@example.com (or firstname.lastname@example.org). Space is limited to fifty people per seating.
Please pass on the word, and if you can help get others, we will definitely show our thanks during the next round of tapings (or get you as participating guests in some of our closed tapings).
Thanks for the support, and have a wonderful day.
