Appetizer Pairing with Wines at the Wildfire Grill Presented by IWAGY Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 2:00 – 5:00 pm (Rain date: Sunday, October 4 at 2:00 – 5:00 pm) 74 Clinton Street, Montgomery NY As you may remember we have been trying to find a restaurant to host an outdoor event for our membership before the onset of cold weather.We’ve done it!Thanks to IWAGY member Suzanne Lunham, we’ve had successful negotiations with the Wildfire Grill in the historic Village of Montgomery, NY to host our members on their patio.The format will be a pairing of appetizers (and a dessert) with wines that we’ve chosen specifically for the dishes selected.For your sense of curiosity and comparison, we are offering two different wines with each appetizer, a single wine with dessert. We suspect that you may feel a bit nervous about “social distancing” but we are confident that the space will allow for ample separation. Also, the Restaurant’s employees are well-versed in good Covid-19 practices. We are also very confident about the food, which is really top-notch.We’re hopeful that some of you will be eager to take a Saturday afternoon off from the grind of “pandemic- induced isolation” we have been enduring. No one knows what the future holds, so we are very pleased that we’ll be able to offer at least one more event for our Club’s 40th Anniversary year. Please join us and restaurant owner Krista Wild for this event!The particulars are below: Reservations are limited to 40 people (capacity of Wildfire Grill patio)
