Event: Cafe Josie Wine Me Dine Me

Cafe Josie’s next “Wine Me Dine Me” on Wednesday May 25th. Tackling the Rose…

Rose wines are some of the most misunderstood wines as far as their style, flavor, and ability to pair with many different styles of food. They are also some of the best wines to have on hand during the dog days of summer when the temperature starts to settle in the upper 90’s…and you all know that’s right around the corner! So, here is your opportunity to re-discover the beauty of Rose as we have prepared a six course tasting menu featuring six Rose Flites paired with six Bites courses.  This event is $30 per person plus tax and gratuity, and will be held on Wednesday, May 25th from 5:30 – 7pm. This is a reservation only event and seating is limited, so please call 512-322-9226 or email us at winemedineme@cafejosie.com for more information or reservations.

UPDATE: Austin Restaurant Week Lives On

UPDATE: Same great taste, just different dates. April 10-13, April 17-20

Don’t count it out. Austin Restaurant Week may have lost Rare as a sponsor, but it’s still kicking. And, I’m glad. A few years back, I was dragged into Jeffrey’s for their ARW offerings and it totally changed my mind what they were about.

Check out the list and go try a new place or revisit an old one. Who knows what you could find? Hell, they even have an iPhone App!

Paggi House, Jeffrey’s, Green Pastures, Fabi and Rosi, Aquarelle, Uchiko, Perry’s and Parkside alongside and new additions such as Haddigton’s, Trace at The W and more. Austin Restaurant Week
