This year’s 12th Annual Anniversary party will not include the usual pot luck. Instead appetizers and bubbly will be provided to enjoy prior to the Cheese and Bubbly pairings. There will be a wide range of tasty offerings being prepared by the board members ranging from Koobideh Wraps to California rolls. Desserts will be provided at the conclusion of the pairings.

Once again, we have some great pairing combinations this year ranging from a Japanese sake pairing to a Sweetheart cocktail pairing. It should be a great experience and a ton of fun, so get your tickets while you can.
