Can you believe that it's already the first Friday of the month again?! Although we are sad the summer months are flying by, we are thrilled to host a wine tasting this Fri., Aug. 2.
Every month we have new and unique wines from around the world for you to sniff, swirl and savor. This specific wine tasting will be run by Bob "Buli" Bulifant, Joe "Country Joe" Davis, and Jon "The Punster" Samelian, pouring and sharing their impressive wine knowledge with you.
This is one of our favorite events, not just becuase of the delicious wines (that's a given), but also because it's a great time to spend with new and old friends. This event turns into quite the party and many guests stay for dinner afterwards.
As always, there will be passed hors d'oeuvres, finger foods and a huge artisanal cheese board as well as 18 reds, whites and roses! For only $18 per person, this is the perfect Friday night activity for a group of friends.
All of the wines served at the tasting are available by the bottle or case at an amazing price. If you buy a case of wines, you can even mix and match and save 10%. It's a deal you won't want to miss.
Wine savvy experts will pour wines from Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, France and of course South Africa and USA, this Fri., July 12 at The Bijou for our monthly wine tasting!
For only $18 per person you can try unlimitted wines, chat about them with friends and vendors and relax! Plus, small plates and passed hors d' oeuvres are included as well as a scrumptious artisanal cheese board.
The wine tasting runs from 5 to 7 p.m. in the "Bird Room." Afterwards, we invite you to join us for our "Summer in the City" three course prix fixe menu.
Sure, it's getting hot out again but the good news is that the first Friday of each month during the summer we host a wine tasting at the Bijou Cafe! Our "First Friday Wine Tastings" were such a big hit last year that we decided, after popular demand, to start them this year in May.
So mark your calenders for 5pm this Fri., May 3 and join us for some great wines, friendly company and tasty appetizers!
We'll have knowledgeable wine merchants pouring wines from all around the world and sharing interesting bits of wine info with you.
Small dishes and passed hors d' oeuvres are included in the cost, as well as a scrumptious artisanal cheese board. And for only $18 per person, the event is just too good to pass up!
We suggest you gather some friends and make a night of it! Many of the art galleries and shops are open late and will invite you to stroll in after the tasting! Be ready for an amazing evening, and we promise, you will want to come back every month.
That's almost all I can say about my recent wine trip to Chile and Argentina. Thanks to my good friend, Freddy Matson and his company, Vineyard Brands, I spent a week sipping, tasting and thoroughly enjoying some excellent wines.
I'd like to share some of those tastes with you this Friday at our First Friday Wine Tasting. It's the last wine tasting of the year, so please mark your calenders and come downtown for an extraordinary tasting!
FIRST FRIDAY WINE TASTING From 5:00 until 7:00pm in the Bird Room Friday, October 5th
A variety of intensely delicious wines from Chile and Argentina, along with some tasty Latin style appetizers and cheese.
J.P. will also have some memorable pictures of the trip playing as a slide show! (They have been carefully edited so you will not see what really went on behind the scenes!)
Only $18.00 per Person
Gather some friends and make a night of it. Join us for dinner after the tasting and take a gander (these are geese!) at our super value prix fixe menu "Summer in the City." First Friday also means many of the art galleries and shops are open late and invite you to stroll in.
It's the middle of summer and it's sweltering. As a matter of fact I'm writing this on my laptop, in my swimming trunks, poolside Chez Knaggs!
What better way to start the weekend off than "First Friday Wine Tasting" at the Bijou Cafe? Chilled whites, cool roses and scrumptious reds will be served alongside special hors d'oeuvres and cheeses.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Cheers, Jean Pierre and Shay Knaggs, Chef/Owners, The Bijou Cafe
