While Tucson is still brimming with those of you fortunate enough to winter here, and with those of you who spend your time here year-round, the last vestiges of the Gem and Mineral Show are rolling up their tents and folding up their tables to move on. Our traffic lightens back up to tolerable, we get our fair city back, and we can be grateful both for the abundance that having tens of thousands of extra people in town brings us, and for the return to normalcy this week brings.
As such, there’s room in two of our three upcoming wine events. This Saturday, Kevin opens four Sauvignon Blancs, each from the Loire, but each from a different part of the Loire Valley. It takes place Saturday at 2:00 and the details are here.
There’s also room in our Last Sunday of the Month tasting, a real treat with natural wines that are new to Arizona, with Luke Anable of the Natural Wine Company. Here’s the scoop on those wines, which you can taste on Sunday at 3:30.
And while there are no seats left at this point for the wine dinner with winemaker Andrew Januik on Tuesday the 25th, the waiting list is a short one at this point, and we invariably have a cancellation or two, so if you’re feeling lucky, call and have your name added to the list. Here’s the menu for that dinner.
And a reminder for your crawfish needs: Because the wine dinner takes place on Fat Tuesday, when we traditionally find the restaurant quite full of people who want to eat crawfish etouffee, we have less space than usual that night. We thought we’d make it easier on you by offering etouffee beginning on Sunday, February 23rd for both brunch and dinner, all day on the 25th, of course, and just to be sure we didn’t miss anyone, we’ll serve it for lunch and dinner again on the 26th. Reservations are a good idea.
Thank you all; we hope to see you soon.
