Food Events to Sink Your Teeth Into
A great opportunity to sample some of that glorious food in concert with a number of Tryst's fine beers is the upcoming Beer vs. Wine dinner going down on October 12 at 6:45 p.m. The restaurant will be doing a four-course prix fixe, and each course is paired with either selection from the wine menu, or Tryst's lengthy beer list. And what a fine beer list that is: it features favorites from Dogfish Head, Rogue, North Coast, Avery, and many more, with a notable selection of Belgians and Hefeweizens and draft options by the dozen. Each punter will get a scorecard to rate their selections, and a winner (beer or wine) will be chosen at the end of the night. Call Erin to reserve your spot -- 561-706-9958. I imagine, like the bar, this thing will fill up quickly.
