MEXICAN WINE DINNER


FRIDAY, MAY 12 | 6:30PM 

Mexico's most western state - Baja California - is known for its year-round warm weather, vast coastline and bountiful vineyards. We invite you to explore this region's vibrant flavors by joining us for an evening of delightful cuisine and fine wines. 
 
Beverage Director Christian Jui will lead us through five courses - each carefully complimented by one of Baja California's fruitful wines - as we enjoy tasteful plates, including shrimp ceviche, lobster enchiladas, barbacoa and warm churros.  
 
We hope to see you!
