Cowboy Ciao Tuesday, October 14
Friendly competition between local wine experts is nothing new to Cowboy Ciao. In fact, the restaurant regularly hosts Sommelier Showdowns that pit two wine professionals against each other in a contest to pick a better pairing. This month the restaurant is shaking things up from the usual routine by putting on a three-way Sommelier Showdown featuring Lyle Railsback of Kermit Lynch Imports, restauranteur Eric Railsback, and of course, Cowboy Ciao owner/wino Peter Kasperski. The dinner, which will begin at 6:30, will feature five courses with three -- yeah that's right, three -- wine pairings per course. Tickets cost $65 and reservations are required. Call 480-946-3111.
