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.

Monday Night Jazz with John Stein (Aug 4)

Tres Gatos is excited to welcome back internationally renowned jazz guitarist John Stein to our weekly Monday night music series.

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. These are widely regarded as being perfect outdoor summer wines, with high acidity and a slight spritz, making them ideal for paring with lighter tapas. We’ll be tasting ’13 Ameztoi “Rubentis,” “Getariako,” and “Stimatum.” Hope you can join us.
