North County Wine and Beer Dinners ~ So much to do and so little time and money

I hope this is a sign of things to come this year for the North County food scene. Talking to chefs and restaurant owners I think it will be.

I had to forgo the Lost abbey dinner because one I hesitated on the reservation and it was the same day as Solace and Moonlight’s Game and Wine Dinner (four words “game and wine dinner”). I also want to give a huge thumbs up to Gauchito Grill for their pairing event.

Note ~ If anyone goes to any of these events and has pics or a post on your website I will gladly link it or post it for you and give full credit.
