The Fall Festival Edition: The Sequel
Bonjour, Charles here…
Yes, we did mention this upcoming event last week. But now we are a week closer to our neighborhood celebration of pumpkin spice (fill in the blank), bulb planting, and the Yankee Candle autumn line up. So please make plans to join us at the West Vliet Street Fall Festival this coming Saturday, October 5th from 12 - 7 for our CE Fromage Super Sandwiches and a lovely selection of wines. We will have a tent in the heartbeat of the fest, but we will also be open for business at our tiny little bistro at 5811 West Vliet Street. Take your pick! Until Saturday, please enjoy this week’s edition of The Sunday Slice.
Blind Wine Tasting
I wish you could have been there! It was so much fun. To have a full house despite the Packers’ game was heartwarming, indeed. Thanks so much to our neighbor and wine guru Gaetano Marengelli and his beautiful bride and wine tasting partner Susan. They were engaging and warm, and they were able to educate and entertain our guests with their knowledge and generous spirits. We hope they will be gracing our space again after our Nov. 21st crowd-sourced wine tasting. Watch for information on our next tasting event and Gaetano’s return.
Enjoy a flight of these outstanding, local beers for $10.00!

We’re Nuts For Our Neighbors in The Shire - Sept 30th
We were a little skeptical that The Shire actually existed. We thought, like Brigadoon, it only made an appearance on occasion to those who believed. So we can’t wait to see who shows up Monday, Sept. 30th for their complimentary serving of either our Spiced Moroccan Cashews or our Rosemary Marcona Almonds per party with purchase. Bonnie Jean? Fiona? Van Johnson? We hope The Shire neighborhood joins us this Monday because we are NUTS for them!
You know they're tasty…
