Hash Over: 25-Cent Coffee, Wine Dinners, And Celebrity Chef Tours
|"Let me be clear. We want change--if we give you a dollar for a cup of coffee at Dunkin' Donuts!"|
To promote the partnership, participating DFW locations of the doughnut chain are offering 25-cent medium-size hot coffees to all customers until noon every Monday, beginning today, through the NFL season. Also, customers can redeem Cowboys game ticket stubs for a free medium coffee on weekdays after home games. Sounds like a great idea: after shelling out a couple hundred bucks for tickets and parking, most fans could probably use the freebie.
Of course, all this is a moot point to those who prefer a California cabernet with the glazed goodies.
Also going on this week...
Bolsa will throw a wine dinner to pair Graham Dodds' creations with Coquerel Family Wine Estates vinos tonight. Owners Clay and Brenda Cockerell will be the hosts. (No, that's not a spelling mistake--the couple uses the archaic French spelling of the family surname.) Cocktail reception is at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.
The Grape's monthly wine dinner will feature Wines From Deutschland, with German rieslings, pinot noirs and eiswein's to complement the German-inspired three-course meal. Republic Beeverage expert Steve Mansir will serve as host at the dinner Wednesday, which diners can enjoy at their own pace throughout the dinner hours for $45 apiece. Reservations are recommended at 214-828-1981.
The Celebrity Chef Tour benefitting the James Beard Foundation comes to Dallas 7 p.m. Thursday. Top Chef winner Hosea Rosenberg will work together with III Forks chef Chris Vogeli on a meal featuring wild game and seafood. Tickets ($175 each) are at the Celebrity Chef Tour web site or 720-201-1853.
