anyone attending the GLOBE BISTRO winemaker's dinner today?

The winemaker's dinners are always a good value, and quite interesting as you get a chance to hear the winemaker talk about the various wines served, and ask questions.
I'll be there today. Here is what is on the menu:

  1. not going to the dinner, alas, but I did try some of the Tawse Merlot Cab when I went for the Globe's bistro special a couple of weeks ago. Good wine. Let us know how it goes.

      foie gras amazing, duck carpaccio awsome

      lamb stoled the show for me.

        I've got some pictures which I will post after I download them.
        I also liked the wine you mentioned.
        I was sitting at the table closest to the small table that the speakers stood near. Where were you?
