In a celebration of BK House's connection to Italian and Sicilian history, join us on Thursday, March 16 at 6:00PM for a tasting of Italian wine and food!
Featuring a presentation by Antonio Molesini, an Italian wine specialist for Republic National Distributing Company, participants will learn how to appreciate and savor five wines from Sicilia and Toscana, paired with CICCHETTI (Venetian Tapas) specially created by Chef Glen Hogh, formerly of Vega Tapas Cafe & Catering in Old Metairie.
Doors open at 5:30 for the orchestrated tasting that begins promptly at 6 pm. Tickets must be pre-purchased as seating will be limited to 50 people. The cost is $50, with a reduced price of $45 for museum members.
While not yet blessed and officially open for viewing, participants will get a sneak peak at the annual St. Joseph's Day Altar, a uniquely Sicilian tradition brought by immigrants to New Orleans in the late 19th century.
We are grateful to our partners at Republic National Distributing Company and Vega Catering for providing both food and beverage for this event.
