Mencia Wine Flight (Aug 13)

Tonight’s wine flight features three Mencias from northwestern Spain. Mencias are known for being light, slightly earthy and very reflective of their terroir.

We’ll be tasting ’12 Armas de Guerra, ’12 Viña do Burato, and ’07 Castro de Valtuille. Enjoy!

Tres Gatos is excited and honored to host Daryl Brown, son of the famous James Brown, for a Q&A and book signing for his new book, “Inside the Godfather.” Known as the Godfather of Soul, James Brown’s contributions to modern music are well known and indisputable, but his role in promoting racial equality and harmony is less appreciated, perhaps because of his complex and tempestuous personal...

Beat the Heat with a Txakolina Wine Flight (7/23)

Given the hot weather, we’re rolling out three Txakolinas for tonight’s wine flight.
