Mark Your Calendars

There are always events going on around town, but some grab my attention more than others. A girl has to rest every now and then, so I try to choose my social occasions wisely. Here’s what’s on my radar for the next couple of weeks!

French Food and Wine Dinner

7 pm

Nashville, TN 37212-3706

If you’ve been around me or my blog very much over the past year, you know how I’ve enjoyed several wine classes at Fido, in particular the ones where Damian Serong of Omni Beverage is sharing his knowledge. Well, he’s leading this one, so there is no way that I would miss it, especially after my recent French wine revelation.

$30/person, plus tax and tip

Riedel Wine Glass Tasting

6:30pm – 8:30pm

618 Church Street
Nashville, TN 37219
(615) 259-4558

I am a BIG believer in the importance of good glassware when it comes to drinking wine- specifically Riedel glassware. I own over 40 Riedel glasses, so that in itself should tell you something. Just in case it doesn’t, I wholeheartedly recommend attending this event so you can see for yourself what a difference a glass can make. My favorite part about this tasting is that you’ll walk out the door with something very special…your own 4-piece Riedel Vinum tasting set! Valued at over $100, this alone makes it worth attending, but the fact that you get to enjoy some fine wines and munch on Morton’s signature hors d’oeuvres makes this a complete don’t miss wine tasting! For more information, visit the Morton’s website.

$60/person- inclusive of tax & gratuity
(added plus: Morton’s will donate $5 to Toys for Tots for each guest that brings a new, unwrapped toy)
