Beaujolais and Beyond

Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Beaujolais Nouveau celebrations don't get much classier than the one that the Alliance Francaise and French-American Chamber of Commerce are throwing at the French Embassy's La Maison Francaise. Snack on food from local French restaurants, drink unlimited wine (with non-Nouveau selections from France, Italy and the U.S.), participate in a blind wine-tasting contest, test your smarts in a trivia contest or dance to a DJ in the ballroom. The evening has a Roaring '20s theme, so dress accordingly. General admission tickets are $60; VIP tickets, which allow entrance to a private tasting event at 7 p.m., are $95.
