Local Eats -- Aussie wine dinner

Those of you in the Cincinnati area are probably aware of the annual Cincinnati International Wine Festival in mid-March. That week's events include a slew of wine dinners around the city. These usually run between $125-150 per person. For those of us more on the budget-minded side who still want a wonderful gastronomic experience, one of my comrades in grapes, Danny Gold, has arranged an independent wine dinner on Wednesday, March 11.

Danny teamed up with Bouquet restaurant in Covington and the importers of d'Arenberg wines from Australia to create an Australian-themed wine dinner. d'Arenberg wines have been featured on The Naked Vine before. Their "Love Grass" shiraz is an all-timer of mine.

The meal is five courses for $70 per person -- the price includes a 5-course meal, wine, tax, and tip. Seating is limited. If you're interested, contact Danny for more information.

Also, Danny and I are planning another wine-related venture. More on that as it develops...

And, on a local eats tangent -- I finally stumbled on Wine Me, Dine Me -- a great blog about food and restaurants in Cincinnati. Mike sez check it out...

Yep. Don't get as out much in the blogosphere as I used to. After spending all day in front of a computer at work, my random surfing time gets cut way back!

She does a heckuva job, tho...
