Day 256: Wine Dinner

Although I don't feel like I have the time to go to a wine dinner, I am greatly looking forward to relaxing and enjoying an amazing meal paired with fine wine.  

While we were waiting to be seated, I browsed their wine selection.  I was amazed to find they had wine from the winery I visited in Burgundy this summer.  I love coming across those little connections that remind you of great times.  How funny that they have wine from that winery.

The menu for tonight includes:
