Rhone Rangers at Willow Restaurant

Hi all!  I just wanted to give a shout out to Willow Restaurant, where I work and an event coming up tomorrow. The East Coast Rhone Rangers are having events around the city and we are proud to host three of them for a tasting with paired dishes.  The event is at 7:30, for $45 plus tax and gratuity, and you can sign up on the website or call 703-465-8800.  It isn't likely that I will review these wines, as I have to work on the line tomorrow, and I have a tough time tasting in a 110 degree kitchen.  Everything tastes hot under those conditions, dunno how the festival and big outdoor competition judges do it!

Anyway, we are featuring...
