Diego and Nick Guest Bartend|
Thursday August 24, ALL NIGHT
That's right, Rhode Island's two best expat wine bartenders are coming back to the cradle. Diego Perez, beloved man behind lost Provi treasures Flan y Ajo and Bodega Malasana, and now enduring the horrors of the Bay Area while crushing it at Ordinare. Nick Lawing, renowned man behind the bar at the Ten Bells, a wine bar possibly as good as Fortnight (lolz), and native son of South County. We're letting these two manics behind the bar and into our cellar to pour some dope juice. It's gonna be wild. It's gonna be crazy. Also Mickey. Also Viva Flan y Ajo.
Wine Traditions Wine Dinner with Ed and Barbara|
Monday August 28
Barbara Selig and Edward Addiss have been importing elegant, classic, and downright delicious wines from France for 21 years! Their company, Wine Traditions, is one we have a ton of respect for and we're excited to be hosting what promises to be a special night with them at Fortnight during their annual Rhode Island trip (Barbara and Ed love RI, another strong mark in favor). The dinner will feature 7 wines curated by Ed and Barbara (with a focus on skin contact white and light reds) along with 4 courses and dessert made by the Fortnight crew. We also promise some enlightening, education, amusing, and endearing stories as Ed and Barbara MC the dinner. Tickets $75, limited seating, email Mike@fortnightpvd.com to get them.
