An Evening with Vokel Cellars @ Bar Boulud
Aug 22 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join Sommelier Jaimie Puckett and Chef Brian Arruda for a four-course wine dinner.

On August 22nd, join Head Sommelier Jaimie Puckett and Executive Chef Brian Arruda in welcoming Vokel Cellars owner & winemaker Dana von Sternberg for a seasonally-inspired tasting menu featuring limited-production Vokel wines from Sonoma.

Vokel Cellars was born from the concept that the best wines are made in the vineyard, not the winery. Dana focuses on small lots from sustainably farmed vineyards, using minimally invasive winemaking practices, allowing the vineyard sites to speak for themselves.

140 Supper Club Dinner: Brinner at Fairmont Copley Plaza
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

September is National Breakfast Month, and breakfast is arguably the best meal, so why not enjoy it twice in one day?

Join the Fairmont Copley Plaza for “Brinner,” breakfast for dinner, and indulge in the satisfying tastes of morning food with the Fairmont’s upscale flair. The menu features classic breakfast flavors creatively presented for dinnertime, and a DIY mimosa bar will be open all night for guests to celebrate like it’s the A.M. Special champagne pairings will be offered each course as well.

While not mandatory, guests are encouraged to wear elegant pajamas or nightwear (appropriate for a communal gathering) to truly get in the “Brinner” spirit.

The five course “brinner” is part of Fairmont Copley Plaza’s popular 140 Supper Club series where guests descend a century-old staircase and whisper a password to be immersed into a themed, intimate dining experience hosted by Executive Chef Laurent Poulain.
