Boo! I’m not in town the weekend of May 31st, but hopefully you will be. You can attend an amazing wine dinner at James Beard nominated Chef Brian Caswell’s REEF.
At this event, wine enthusiasts can taste wines from four national and international award-winning Texas wineries at the first-ever Texas Fine Wine pairing dinner on Saturday, May 31 at REEF in Houston.
