Last Friday's Beer Night was a success!
Thanks to all who helped in the process as my usual front of house was not available. Photos of the event here.
I've been pinging the masses and have come up with the following theme for next Monday's dinner: Say Cheese! Each course will have a flavor profile that exhibits a unique cheese and will be paired with a wine brought by YOU. I will notify the individual wines that we'll need and again, no obligation to spend more than $2 on your bottle.
This is the first event where the attendees will be given direction on which type of wine to bring - hopefully with a positive result! Also, a previous brainstorm session had agreed on the theme "Drunk and Full of Cheese" which would be pretty much the same idea.
