Only True Foodies Need Apply
Since its 2001 opening, The MilkyWay has taken an undeniable cornerstone position in the foundation of Boise's culinary in-crowd. Next week's winemakers dinner featuring Ceago Vinegarden, created by Jim Fetzer after the sale of Fetzer Winery in 1992, further proves that point. Ceago's approach to wine is basic, using biodynamic farming concepts that result in a "beyond organic" wine.
The five course pre-fixe menuof which lamb with wild mushroom spaetzle is the entreefeatures five Ceago wines, including the 2005 Muscat Canelli with a poached pear for dessert.
Tuesday, May 23, doors open at 6 p.m., dinner served at 6:30 p.m., $90 per person (includes gratuity and tax), reservations required. The MilkyWay, 205 N. 10th St. #101, 343-4334.
In lieu of providing each of the members of Frim Fram Four with a crisp $100 bill as apology, I have chosen to publicly profess my undying audible love for the Nat King Cole tribute band. In my April 26 Füd News column, I reported Pengilly Saloon's Cosmopolitan appearance, while stupidly neglecting to mention the magazine's sincere recommendation to visit the pub on a Thursday night, when the tuxedoed gang takes center stage. I stand corrected, there are now two opinions on which Boise Weekly agrees with Cosmo.
