On March 21 the Sol Ballroom was packed with members of the Wine Club partying like a ‘20s tycoon for a celebration of the Roaring ‘20s. Members enjoyed specially selected wines to enjoy with their delicious four-course dinner. At the beginning of the event two Prohibition era cocktails were available. Members enjoyed either a “Bee’s Knees” or a “Sidecar” before the dinner started.

Entrees: Lobster Newburg or steak Diane or vegetables terrine

Many thanks to Dave Muck, Jill Stark, Cyndy Pylkka, Dave Moretto, and Nancy Eisenstein who directed the coordination of this event. The club’s next events are a wine tasting bus trip to Sonoita/Elgin on May 7 and a wine mixer on May 16.
