From his in house made pastrami to his hotdogs made with grass grown local beef and then hand ground, everything he makes is from scratch, and is done using only the best, local ingredients! It might not be low calorie, but it sure does taste good!!! Pair it with a good glass of wine and you’ll leave with a full stomach and a smile on your face!


Summer Whites From Trimbach in Alsace

Wednesday, August 21, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In conjunction with our food truck night next Wednesday, we will have Alan Riegel with us from Trimbach Winery in Alsace, France. If you’re new to wines from Alsace, it’s one of the most exciting regions in France. A cooler growing region bordering on Germany, these wines are mostly white, but usually bone dry. If you think you don’t like Riesling, think again. We’ll be tasting Riesling, Gewurtzraminer, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc..all bone dry. These are magnificent expressions of how wines from Alsace should taste and they are perfect warm weather whites! Cost for this tasting is $15, no reservations needed, come anytime between 5:30-8:00 and pay when you arrive.

Meet The Wine Maker: Todd Anderson of Anderson’s Conn Valley Vineyards

Tuesday, September 3, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Todd Anderson has been described as the bad ass of Napa. Maybe it’s because he stands 6 feet 4 inches tall, drinks bourbon, and curses a lot. Or maybe it’s because he’s made some of the best Cabernet from Napa consistently for over 25 years.

Having grown up on a farm and driving tractors and train engines by 8, his love of the land grew at an early age. Todd graduated from UOP as a Geologist. His extensive background as a geophysicist makes him one of the most unique and qualified winemakers as his knowledge of soil and micro-climates gives him the edge up on others. Todd develops the land, pounds the posts, plants the vines, cares for the grapes, all before he even starts the bottling process.

This is a very unique opportunity to meet and chat with owner/winemaker Todd Anderson and taste 5 high end Napa Cabernets and blends retailing from $50-$110 per bottle. Cost for this tasting is $50 and includes appetizers. This is a casual, walk around style tasting, no reservations are necessary (pay when you arrive), but THIS IS ONE TASTING YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!


Dehesa Wines: An Evening In Spain

Wednesday, September 4, 7:00 PM

Dehesa La Granja is the dream of anyone who loves the countryside and is Alejandro Fernandez’ tranquil reverie come to life. The winery forms part of a working farm that is fully integrated into the environment of Zamora, a land it respects deeply, and embodies a true “farm-to-table” lifestyle. Within the 850-hectare farm, 150 hectares of Tempranillo vineyards stretch along the banks of the Guareña River. In addition to its expressive Tempranillo wines, the estate also grows other agricultural crops and raises livestock, producing items such as garbanzos, cured goat cheese and extra virgin olive oil. All wines made by Dehesa La Granja are aged for at least 5 years. The estate has an impressive 3,000 meters of 18th century tunnels that run under the farm, creating a unique labyrinth of cellars in which the wines repose.  This tasting is made up exclusively of wines made from tempranillo, but each from a different vineyard within the Dehesa Estate. The land is so diverse that each tempranillo made is very unique from all the others and this tasting is a great opportunity to dissect exactly how terroir impacts a wine's quality.  Each wine will be paired with a traditional Spanish tapa to compliment the wines.  Cost for this event is $60 and seating is limited to 30 people. Tickets can be purchased by clicking on the link below. See you on September 4!
