Be a time-traveler and get your taste buds ready for the annual Kiwanis Autumn Wine Dinner, “Then and Now” set for 6-8 p.m. Oct. 24 in Kelly Hall at the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.
The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos will host a celebration of the foods from the Manhattan Era paired with the wines of today, catered by the Blue Window Bistro.
Building on the excitement and enthusiasm of the recent designation as part of The Manhattan Project National Historic Park, Kiwanis invites the public to an evening that captures the tastes from the Manhattan era enhanced with wines available today, carefully selected to pair with each appetiser. Popular foods from the 1940s, including Edith Warner’s Chocolate Cake (remembered as Robert Oppenheimer’s favorite), will be deliciously prepared by the chef and staff of the Blue Window Bistro. The wait staff will serve the pairing wines with information about the wine characteristics.
This year, the event will have live entertainment from Kiwanian Rod Pittman. Bring $10 to gamble in a game of coin tosses called “Heads or Tails” where the winner splits the prize winnings with the Kiwanis Service Fund. Participate in a silent auction with vintage wine, a Blue Window dinner and a three-month YMCA membership.
