The Celeb Sighting Edition

None of these celebrities were at Charles E. Fromage for the Film Fest!

Bonjour, Charles here…

The film festival has our tiny little bistro a-hopping and film celebs dropping in for a lovely beverage or tasty snack. Film people are so colorful, gregarious and surprisingly interested in wine and beer. Who da thunk? Be sure to make plans to see a film at the Times and drop in yourself, you old celebrity, you. Until then, enjoy this edition of The Slice.

Wine and Chocolate Pairing This Sunday!

What is better than these two treats perfectly paired? Our incredible crowdsourced wines paired with local favorite Tabal Chocolate! Owner Dan Beiser makes chocolate that is not only incredibly delicious but sustainably produced. We welcome Dan on Sunday, October 27th at 2:45 for a very special wine and chocolate pairing. We will be serving 5 wines perfectly paired with 5 delectable chocolates while Dan fills us in on his craft and answers questions you may have after screening the film Setting the Bar: A Craft Chocolate Origin Story. Watch the film and join us, or attend just the pairing. Either way, tickets are available at Join us!
