When: Sat., Nov. 19 2011
If the thought of kicking back on the porch with a cold brewski or a glass of grapey goodness sounds like fun, today's grand reopening of the Front Porch Cafe at Rozi's Wine House should be right up your alcohol alley. The family-owned and operated beverage store's recent renovation includes indoor/outdoor seating, an 8-handled draft system, and a big menu of small bites and noshs. Today's special celebration happens from noon to 5 p.m. and includes tastings of seasonal beers and newly released wines, along with a visit from guest chef Matt Auck, who will be cooking up all manner of tasty eats. Cost is $20, and forget about tickets, reservations, and throwing on your fancy duds. "All our events are very informal," says owner Corey Rossen. "We just like to have fun." — Cicora 14900 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-221-1119, rozis.com.
