From noon until 7:00 p.m. on “1905” Day, guests will enjoy the Columbia Restaurant’s world-famous Spanish cuisine for the prices they might have paid in the “good ole days”.
Wine Madonna opened recently at 111 Second Ave. NE, sharing the courtyard with the Ale & the Witch. Owners Kris Radish, a novelist and former journalist, and Madonna Metcalf, a certified sommelier, aim to work with the craft brew tap house. According to Radish, the new wine-tasting lounge offers about 65 wines, 45 by the glass, from New World to Old World wines at every price point. “We don’t want to intimidate anyone. Our working motto is ‘seek happiness.’ ” Wine Madonna is working with a local caterer to provide nibbles in hopes of offering wine classes and food and wine pairings with local chefs.
Interesting how the owners of the Plaza – with Ale & The Witch, El Matate, Sab Cafe, etc. – have been able to create one of the busiest spots in downtown without a concert venue or movie theater to attract visitors.
I hope you are getting out to Williams Park on Wednesdays:
