Swirl Smell Slurp Sunday Salon: February 21 at 2:00p

Join us in a casual, unpretentious setting as we learn about, discuss, and (most importantly) taste wine: Swirl Smell Slurp Sunday Salon (it’s a mouthful).

The Salon is free, We just ask that you bring a bottle of wine from the varietal/region we are discussing. There is no need to spend an exorbitant amount on a bottle, We recommend $20 or less.

For this edition of the Salon we will be slurping red Bordeaux.

Please RSVP to us@swirlsmellslurp.com and We will send you details and directions. (Space is limited to 14 guests.) Informative print-outs, glassware, and light snacks provided.

Friends Cook at Canelé: Swirl Smell Slurp: February 23 5:30p – 10:30p

It’s going to be a delicious night at our favorite neighborhood restaurant: Swirl Smell Slurp are the latest guests in the “Friends Cook at Canelé” series.

We will be donning our aprons and manning the stoves (with a lot of help from their amazing team), cooking up a prix fixe menu of:
– frisée aux lardons to start
–steaks frites for the main course
–profiteroles for a desert

In addition to this great meal, a wine pairing will be offered, with a specially chosen wine for each course from the tasty portfolio of Vintage Wine Marketing.

In the spirit of our French bistro theme, Steve Ventrello is making a guest appearance and will be playing the accordion.

Please join us–it’s going to be a delectable night.

(Canelé will also be serving the normal dinner menu. No reservations are required: simply come when you please, anytime between 5:30-10:00p. Price for the prix fixe and the wine pairing will be announced soon.)
