Porch Pounders! And Porch Plants!

Porch Pounders! And Porch Plants!

Wine geeks refer to wines that are great for summertime sipping as "Porch Pounders." They're most often white, they're cheap, they're low in alcohol, and they're quite tasty with or without food. Sample a half-dozen or so of Paul's favorites, but don't expect any Chardonnay. Do expect, in addition to the wines, Paul's presentation on how to liven up your porch (or patio or courtyard) with great container plants, both ornamental and edible.

Cost of class is $10, and is limited to 30 guests. Registration is required. Light food pairings will be served.

If all you know about sake is the warm swill they often serve in restaurants, then you're in for a treat. Paul James is a sake fanatic, and he'll share with you how sake is made, how to read a sake label, how to drink it (chilled, not warm!), and how to pair it with food. He's certain you'll walk away with a whole new way of thinking about sake. And as if that weren't enough, he'll also share with you his favorite plants from Japan.

Cost of class is $10, and is limited to 30 guests. Registration is required. Light food pairings will be served.

Join Paul James as he walks you through the tasty world of tequila and samples some of his favorites, including blanco, reposado, and anejo versions, while simultaneously showing you his favorite desert plants, including cacti and succulents and -- of course -- agave, without which there would be no tequila! Don't expect fancy margaritas or other mixed drinks. And don't think you'll be shooting this spirit from a shot glass. This is strictly for the tequila purist, so plan on doing some slow sipping (and savoring).

Cost of class is $10, and is limited to 30 guests. Registration is required. Light food pairings will be served.
