Varanese hosting Around the World in Six Courses Tonight

Tonight, as in Tuesday, July 16, Varanese will host an Around the World in Six Courses dinner featuring food and wine from Greece, Italy, Chile, Argentina, France and the good ol’ U.S. of A. Varanese does an incredible job on wine dinners and we’re sure this one will be as good as all the rest.

Cost for the dinner is $65—always a bargain there—without tax and gratuity. Gotta get your reservations made, though, so call 502-899-9904 or email letsdine@varanese.com.

The evening beings with an opening reception at 6:30 p.m., with dinner following at 7.
