Touché @ Chez François Presents…
Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021
Every year the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest “Bar” days of the year. Friends, relatives and young college adults travel back to their hometown for a long weekend getaway.
Several years ago we introduced “The Twelve Beers of Christmas” featuring twelve holiday beers from around the world. We searched the marketplace for a dozen unique holiday beers, and we actually found sixteen! This year our goal is more. Chef John D’Amico will feature a selection of fine hors-d’oeuvres.
