I was bummed to miss last night’s release party for the Gandy Dancer Brew Works beers over at Monk’s. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, and staying in was the better option.
But the good news is it sounds like it was a great time, and there is still plenty of beer left to sample. The above photo was taken by my friend, and one of the first brewers to have his work featured, Ryan Janssen. As you can see, there’s a nice variety, and it’ll be fun to have some truly local flavor in the mix at Monk’s.
Another event I won’t be making this year (seriously, why am I so lame?!) is the annual Uncorked event at Johnny Carino’s this Thursday. The wine event, in its fourth year, benefits the Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove.
We’ve gone in the past, and it’s a great way to sample a variety of wines, eat some good apps and catch up with old and new friends. It’s $50 and you can get tickets here.
