|What’s happening at Vendome Arcadia!
Fall has always been a favorite time of the year for me. Maybe it’s the cooling of the weather (at some point…). Maybe it’s knowing the holidays are on the horizon. There’s just that something in the air. Whatever the reason, it’s a great time to head indoors and grab something hearty to drink and relax with some friends. We have put a lot of events on the calendar this month for just such occasions.
If you head to:
you can see everything that is going on this month – to plan ahead what you would like to attend.
For this week we have two events.
Thursday, 10/5 is Brunello and Super Tuscans with Jim Griffin and Herbie Monterossa. You may have met these two before at the Barbaresco and Barolo tasting. If you didn’t, now is your chance to meet these two gentlemen well versed in all things wine.
Time is 6-9pm
Cost is $20
Friday, 10/6 we are doing French wines. Our own Steve Besser (from our sister store in Studio City) will be there with wine rep Jose Rentera. Steve has been in this industry for a very long time and knows quite a bit about French wines in particular. He also is full of great stories – if you can get him to tell them!
We’re starting later this Friday, 7-9pm
Cost is $15.
Next week we have a free whiskey tasting with the fine folks at Balcones Whiskey. Balcones makes a handful of whiskeys in Texas, including a single malt, smokey malt and blue corn whiskey, plus a couple others.
Time is 6-9pm
Cost is $0 – free.
Next Friday, the 13th is Debbie’s Night with our own Debbie Adelman. She will be doing her usual fun food and wine pairings. She starts a little earlier at 5:30pm and goes until late.
Cost is $15.
Next Saturday, the 14th is our Oktoberfest! We will have draft beer specials on German (or German inspired) beer and no corkage on German bottles. We will also have food! We’ll be cooking up Brats and have Sauerkraut and maybe even some pretzels if we can rustle em up in time!
Oktoberfest festivities will be from 2:00pm to 6:00pm.
There is no fixed cost for the event. Just pay for what you consume.
There is much much more this month. Visit our website for more info and stay tuned to future emails.
And we did mention our coffee program is up and running, correct? We are now open at 7:00am weekday mornings for tasty Forge coffee. Weekend hours will most likely change as well, we just haven’t dialed them in yet. Stay tuned!
