About: Celebrate Mardi Gras @MetroWines!
Drop in for a French Fête Extraordinaire, "Mardi Gras @MetroWines," with Chef Sam Etheridge of AMBROZIA on Tuesday February 21st from 4 to 6pm at Metrowines on Charlotte Street. Wines from Johnson Brothers/Mutual will be paired to each dish.
"We invite you to cruise the food and wine stations, mingle, clink glasses and laissez les bons temps rouler!" says, Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. "Although rooted in religion, Mardi Gras has come to mean a time for everyone to let the good times roll and let tomorrow worry about tomorrow!"
The evening is not a sit down dinner but a walk around Bourbon Street Bash featuring:

Station 1: Gumbo. White Wine

Station 2: Jambalaya. Light Red

Station 3: Pot Roast Po Boy. Big Red. 

and Station 4: King Cake. Dessert wine. 
   King cake is an oval braided confection smothered with white icing and sugar sprinkles that salute the official colors of Mardi Gras: Green for faith, purple for justice, and gold for power. There's a trinket, usually a plastic baby, hidden inside each one.Tradition dictates that finding the baby in your cake symbolizes luck and prosperity, and the finder becomes the "king" or "queen" of the evening. 
   Not only will the one who finds the baby become royalty but take home a bottle of wine to keep the celebration going!

The event is $45 plus tax. Call (828) 575-9525 or go here: https://metro-wines.shoplightspeed.com/feb-21-fat-tuesday-food-and-wine-tasting.html
