Thursday Sips & Nibbles

 I'm back again with a new edition of Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food and drink events. I hope everyone dines out safely and tips well. 

1) Tomorrow, Friday, May 28, from 4pm-6pm, there will be a special taste of Croatian Wines outdoors in front of the Solera Wine Shop, located at 16 Birch Street in Roslindale. This street is blocked off for traffic in the summer so there will be plenty of space for socially-distanced tastings, and there are a few restaurants with tables outside. 

The good people of Croatian Premium Wine Imports are leading this tasting of organic wines from the Komarna Appellation in the Dubrovnik county. Ever wonder the origins of the well-known Zinfandel grape from California or the Primitivo from Italy? Its roots are from Croatia where it is known as Tribidrag and its offspring grape is Plavac Mali. Croatian Premium Wines will be pouring these big, bold, perfect for your Memorial Day holiday weekend. There will be delicious Whites and Roses, as well. 

This is a complimentary tasting and no reservations are necessary, There will be plenty of excellent Croatian wines to enjoy so I recommend you check out the tasting. 

2) Casa Caña and Bar Moxy will host a Summertime Rooftop Celebration on Thursday, June 10th, starting at 7pm. The event will feature three courses of Casa Caña’s taqueria-inspired fare paired with delicious cocktails. Taking place on Bar Moxy’s rooftop, twenty four floors above downtown Boston, guests will be treated to amazing city skyline views alongside delicious cantina fare from recently reopened, taqueria-inspired Casa Caña.  

The menu includes:
Primero: Shrimp Ceviche
Segundo: Barbacoa, cilantro rice, chiatoye squash, mole
Postre: Flan, coconut, mezcal berries

Tickets, which cost $65, to the event are available for purchase HERE.
