Rosé done well is terribly tasty. Fresh, tart strawberries, exotic, a little bit of rhubarb, honeydew melon and citrus fruits, stoney minerality that manages to massage your tongue into piercing minerality. Classic examples like the ones from Tavel in France which only produces Rosés from a vibrant salmon to pink rose petals coming in Sangiovese and Pinot Noir. Basically this is made from pressed juice with a light touch on the skins, we’re talking like five to eight hours max. You wanna pair some food with Rosé? Start with fruit, salads, olives, hummus, ceviche and anchovies for apps. Read more about 3rd Annual DRINK PINK

Oak Ridge Hotel revives the age old tradition
of the Beefsteak. Originating in the late 19th
century, Beefsteaks were a celebration of the
working class. Gathering in rustic dining halls,
patrons would tell stories, eat steak and drink ale.
Attendees wore butcher aprons and used the skirt
of the apron to wipe grease off their hands and
face. Neither silverware nor napkins were allowed. Read more about Oak Ridge - Beefsteak Dinner
