Fraser library plans progressive dinner
October 22, 2010
If the cold weather has you dreaming of cozy nights sharing wine and food with friends, mark your calendar for Dec. 1 for the Fraser Valley Library’s annual Progressive Dinner event. The dinner benefits the Fraser Valley Library and the Grand County Library District while showcasing the excellent culinary attractions of the valley. Organized by the Friends of the Grand County Library, the 22nd Annual Progressive Dinner includes two routes, each featuring four area restaurants. There’s a walking route for those who like to build an appetite for the next course, and a bus route traveling to restaurants further afield. Both routes begin with hors d’oeuvres and wine and move on to soup and salad, followed by a delicious entre, more wine, and end with a yummy dessert. If you’re not quite ready to go home after that, there is an after-dinner party at Smokin’ Moe’s Ribhouse and Saloon with drinks and music. The routes this year are as follows:Walking Route (Red): Deno’s Mountain Bistro, Gasthaus Eichler, Alberto’s, and Randi’s Grill and PubBus Route (Teal): Tabernash Tavern, Creekside Eatery, Bistro 28 at Pole Creek, and Fontenot’s Fresh Seafood & Grill.Tours finish at Smokin’ Moe’s with live music provided by the Grand County Blues Society. Tickets go on sale at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 3 in the Fraser Valley Library Urban Community Meeting Room. The dinner takes place from 5-9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1.
