For the third year we will be dining at the CIA Diner Series which takes place from now through early April. Carmela and I enjoy the lectures about wine makers, partake in five samples of their brand and then dine in one of the CIA great restaurants and have five more glasses of wine. Some nights wine is not the subject. How about dining as they did on the Titanic without jumping ship?. If whiskey, beer or cheese is your favorite, they have it too. It is wonderful experience and value. Being Irish I usually ask Carmela to be the “designated driver” on the way home to our B & B just an hour South of Hyde Park. Check it out at www.ciachef.edu/restaurants/events/diningseries.asp. Maybe we will see you there and here.
