    Those attending should be aware that this is a learning experience for the students and that we should let the students open the wine at least at the start.

    It’s an early start with the bubbles being opened at 6pm, the restaurant will be open from 5:30 pm. People may need to purchase wine from the bar or use their own before 6pm.

    Guidance will be given to the students on the distribution of the wine etc, so patience and understanding are important.

    The cost will likely be $45.00 for three courses with corkage, coffee and tea. We must be seated by 6:45pm and finished by 9:30 pm. An order form will be sent out in the very near future.
