Look at the second and thrid courses and tell me they don;t sound interesting as all get-out.
PLUS: You get to meet the new movie star, (and wine maker at Veristas) Emily Pelton who will discuss the wines you'll be swirling and sipping along with your cuisine.
This one's a no brainer, though I know it's late in the game and I apologize for letting you know just a pair of days before.
