Latin Wine Night at Rainbow Lodge
This is the next in Rainbow Lodge's monthly series of reasonably-priced wine events and it focuses on Latin wines. Four wines, from Spain, Portugal, Argentina and Chile, are each paired with a single dish. Dishes include Smoked Chile Braised Beef Short Ribs (which sound great with a Malbec) and Almond de Touchino Cake Bars and Caramel for dessert. Sounds yummy. The event is casual, "walk-around" style. Call 713-861-8666 to reserve a spot. 5:30 p.m. 2011 Ella. $35More »
