Happy Friday everyone! It is gorgeous outside today…hard to believe they are calling for chilly temps this weekend. So many fun happening around town these next few weeks don’t you think? I feel like when spring hits everyone comes out of hibernation and people want to get back to socializing.

With that said, why not grab a bunch of your gal pals and head over to Pier W on Tuesday, April 12th for the Annual Tour of Oregon Wine dinner. Pier W, the iconic Cleveland waterfront restaurant (that looks like a boat!) will host this multiple course dinner, paired with various Willamette Valley vineyard wines.

“The Willamette Valley is best known for the earthy undertones and mineral qualities in the soil and conveyed in the wines,” comments Stevoff (Pier W’s wine director). “Similar in latitude to Burgundy (France!), the Oregon pinot region produces some of the most exquisite flavors. I’m looking forward to walking guests through the nuances of the Pacific Northwest set against Chef Reik’s culinary creations in an intimate but approachable learning experience.”

Personally….I am especially looking forward to the dessert course of lemon cheesecake paired with a late harvest reisling…delicious!

And while I am talking about Pier W…if you are a runner…or want to be, you have plenty of time to train for their annual Copper River Salmon Run 5k run/walk, Saturday May 21st with proceeds to benefit Cleveland charity Malachi House. This is one of my favorite races because not only is it a great route through Lakewood, but you also get lunch post-race on their patio. Who want to run with me?

So like I said, grab your friends and reserve your spot for the upcoming wine dinner on April 12th…I’ll plan to see you there.
