Last night, my wife and I went to the “Sips and Dips wine and spreads pairing” event with some friends. I knew that they were doing some mini events because we’ve highlighted their “Breakfast beer & bacon pairing” event on the Everything Show!
Somehow, I missed that this one was coming up but thankfully my wife snagged us all a table.
The private event was simple:
- You show up
- Find your table
- Order some food or drinks before it starts (optional)
- Then coast through the dips they have paired with select wine
Note: It’s currently 4:45am and I cannot remember the names of the dips or wine. 😩
We started with a Pinot Noir paired with a caramelized onion, mushroom and leek dip. Just to be fully transparent with you: I had no idea what a leek was. [Definition
We then moved on to a Crawfish Étouffée-style dip with a chardonnay which was probably my most favorite. And the last two were a blue-cheese dip followed by a dessert dip.
We had a great time and it was over right at 8pm. The entire staff was on top of everything and explained each pairing really well (even though I can’t remember most of what they said).
It doesn’t look like they have another one currently scheduled yet but I’m hoping they do more of these. If you haven’t had a chance to try one of The Boardroom Pub & Grub’s mini events, you totally should.
