m.onday deal — Nantucket Wine Festival
While Daffodil and Figawi may represent the start of season to some (weird yellow-loving folks and drunkity-drunks, mainly), for the foodie set, the start of Nantucket’s season begins each year with the Nantucket Wine Festival. The 14th annual Festival begins this Wednesday and, in true fashion, most events have already sold out. One offering series that still has availability includes the four Luncheon Symposium, pairing winemakers with some of the island’s finest chefs such as those from Straight Wharf & American Seasons. Today’s m.onday deal will get you into one of the best; honestly, for a food and wine lover, it’s worth a day trip for the experience.
West Coast Pinot Meets East Coast Cochon features the cuisine of Chef Michael LaScola and winemakers Robert Sinskey, Proprietor, Robert Sinskey Vineyards, Maria Ponzi, Proprietor, Ponzi Vineyards (symposium wine: Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve 2005), David Hirsch, Proprietor, Hirsch Vineyard and Alex Sokol-Blosser, Proprietor, Sokol-Blosser.
Tickets for the 3.5 hour lunch (11 AM – 2:30 PM) on Thursday, May 20, 2010 are selling for $150. For m.onday deal readers, you can buy a ticket for $125.00. That’s 17% off of the regular ticket price. If this isn’t enough to convince you to call in sick on Thursday and make a day around it, perhaps the menu will be the final nail in the coffin…
