Last week’s Ladies Night was an extraordinary event featuring wines from around the globe. Guests had the opportunity to taste six different wines: Ritzman Riesling from Germany, Ventana Chardonnay and Haraszthy Zinfandel from California, Brumaio Pinot Grigio from Italy, Viña Mayor Tinto Roble from Spain and Baron Des Chartrons Bordeaux from France.
Here’s a fun little factoid I learned: when tasting wines, it’s best to start with the lightest and work your way up to the darker red ones. You know when people swirl their wine in the glass? It’s because as the wine coats the sides of the glass, it releases its bouquet (a fancy term for its aroma). Also, when you finally get to drink the wine, you should always sip a little bit and swirl it around in your mouth so all your taste buds can experience the flavor.
Drinking wine is definitely an acquired taste and most people tend to stick to a certain type of wine. I, personally, prefer the lighter wines. My favorite was the Brumaio Pinot Grigio. Not only was it delicious, the price was pretty attractive at only $13 a bottle.
A crowd favorite was the Zinfandel ($18) and Bordeaux ($13).
If you plan on coming to December 9th’s Ladies Night, you’ll have another opportunity to try the wines and buy them.
December 9 is the last Ladies Night of the year. As usual, attendants will receive 20% off their purchases (excluding consignment items), get entered in a raffle and enjoy complimentary appetizers. As a special treat, guests can see a holiday makeup demo from a professional. Fun, yes?
Winter Wonderland wedding ideas are the perfect way to create a world of wondrous enchantment on your special day. Guests will be submerged in a cozy atmosphere reflecting gold and silver. A Beautiful display of sparkling lights, over-the-top snowflakes, icicle decorations accenting luxurious dress that captivates the night!
All these ideas come to mind once you entering Brownstone Catering’s October Wedding Wednesday showcase “Winter Wonderland”. The first thing you see upon entering are a spectacle of lights that bounce off a lavish silk white linen placed through-out the venue. A glow of blue light strikes you as you make your way towards the entrée table. A beautiful center piece designed in the likes of an ice castle with a variety of yummy treats for you to try.
This Winter Wonderland provided guests an array of light and weather appropriate foods to enjoy.

The menu included: crab and artichoke dip with baguettes, date and goat cheese puff, chicken roulade, brownstone’s famous creamy dill meatballs and an introduction to a chilled white chocolate mocha beverage.
