Tonight: Rare Slovenian wines at Table 6, bourbon at the West End Tavern
6:30 p.m. tonight, Table 6, 609 Corona Street, welcomes Slovenian winemaker Aleks Simcic and master sommelier Laura Williamson for a four-course dinner paired with the rare wines of Edi Sincic from Goriska Brda. Not impressed? Ray Isle, Food & Wine magazine's wine editor, called these wines the "darlings of any number of top U.S sommeliers...because their winemakers are devoted both to organic farming and to creating wines that are deeply expressive of their place of origin."
The dinner, prepared by Table 6 exec chef Scott Parker, is $90 per person and reservations are necessary: call 303-831-8800 to book your seat.
Or, head up to Boulder's West End Tavern, 926 Pearl Street, for the bar's Bulleit Bourbon social with guest Robert Sickler, one of only a dozen bona fide whiskey masters in the United States.
The event begins at 6 p.m., costs $20 per person and includes Bulleit neat, three Bulleit cocktails and appetizers from exec chef Chris Blackwood. To reserve your space, call 303-444-3535.
