The Sunday Slice
The When It Rains We Pour Edition
Bonjour, Charles here…
Well, the weather did not cooperate for the Fall Festival, but that did not deter our neighbors from enjoying the fest and then escaping the rain by visiting us in our tiny little bistro. We were grateful for your patronage during the festival and during the rain. Once again, West Vliet Street proves to be the nicest rue because of you! So pat yourself on the back, and enjoy this week’s edition of The Sunday Slice.
Many of you have been asking when the next wine event will be, so mark your calendars for November 14th for our quarterly wine tasting to identify the wines we will be adding to our ever-growing wine list. The evening will begin at 7:00 and include wines selected for the upcoming holidays. The wines will also be available for purchase that evening, so plan on a little holiday shopping, too!
