We have more reason than ever to get our drunk on this weekend, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't do it with a little class. Josef's in Plantation, New Times' favorite Austro-Italian restaurant, debuts its Friday night wine flights this evening, with tastings of Austrian, Spanish, and Italian wines and a special bar menu prepared by chef Josef Schibanetz. Not that you wouldn't want to order from the regular menu! Tonight's flights range from $11 for three pours of Austrian whites to $17.50 for four pours of luscious Italian reds, including a Fuedo Solaria "Nero d'Avola" from Sicily and a Endrizzi Massetto Nero Cuvee "Blend" from Trentino. And since no wine tasting is complete without dessert, finish up with Josef's homemade apple strudel.
They'll be holding these shindigs every Friday night. Contact the restaurant for more info.
