Perman Wine Selections – Events Calendar – 11/29/10


Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

With the year slowly wrapping up, I wanted to spread a little holiday cheer by teaming up again with X-Marx for what promises to be our most decadent dinner of the year!

This will be a tribute dinner to the great Montreal restaurant Au Pied de Cochon! If you don’t know it, this is one of Canada’s and certainly Montreal’s most gluttonous and best restaurants. Irreverent Chef Martin Picard is famous for his Foie Gras laden, belly-bursting menu.

We kind of figured what better way to celebrate the holidays than with an all out dinner featuring 6+ courses specially prepared by X-Marx and paired with wines poured by yours truly!

Please join us for this special night – your belly and soul will thank you for it!

A quick note to those who are signed up for any of the upcoming tastings at Perman Wines – please send me an RSVP note to confirm your spot. A lot is going on this time of year, and it would be helpful to me if you did so – many thanks!

Have a great and delicious holiday season!

For over two years, I have teamed up with X-Marx, Chicago’s best no-rules, alternative dining group to bring you the most creative & delicious wine dinners in town!

We have been inspired in recent times by the great Montreal restaurant Au Pied de Cochon and thought what better time of year to do a gluttonous tribute dinner then on a Sunday in December!

We are taking over an existing restaurant space on Fulton Market to bring you this event.
X-Marx will prepare an exciting six+ course menu, and I will pair wines with five of those courses. As Au Pied de Cochon is rooted in classic French cooking, I thought what better chance do I have to show off with all French wine pairings! Those who know me understand that I don’t mess around – and this will be over the top fun!

As with every previous dinner I have done with X-Marx, this will sell out – so please reserve your spot today!

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
