The menu for the event included:

Fourth Course

The theme was Spring Wines and Food with wines from Empire Distributors. After the event, partakers were able to purchase the wines they had tasted and enjoyed.

Participants raved about this lively addition to the calendar and said that they look forward to savoring more events like this one. Dining Service Manager Lyndsey Stevenson was happy to oblige, saying, “We are already planning a similar affair for the month of April with a five-course tasting and pairing.”

Residents are urged to keep an eye on Cubigo for the announcement of the next pop-up event.
