Aphrodisiacs and New Menus at Ravine

26 Jan

Thursday’s art opening featuring Lisa Williamson of Memphis is the kickoff of several events coming up at Ravine.

The next food and wine pairing, scheduled for Wednesday, February 1, will carry the theme of “aphrodisiacs” as an early tribute to Valentine’s Day. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the cost is $30 per person. Call Ravine for reservations at 234-4555.

And speaking of Valentine’s Day, while Ravine is usually closed on Tuesdays, it will be open to accommodate those who want to enjoy a romantic evening near the fireplace. Call early to reserve a spot.

New menus (all except brunch) have also surfaced since the start of the new year. Check them out on the restaurant’s website or peruse them in person.

Vino-Free Valentine’s Day

7 Feb

OK, so by now you’ve heard that the Mississippi State Tax Commission is requesting–well, insisting–that we toast to our sweeties on Valentine’s Day with soda and sweet tea.

The Commission has denied the request to serve liquor next Sunday. However, if you’re set on celebrating over a glass of merlot, consider dining at one of the popular BYOB establishments such as Yocona in Exile, Taylor Grocery or Castle Hill Resort & Restaurant (as a resort, they can serve alcohol on Sundays). If you know of any BYOB establishments I’ve left out, please let me know by commenting here or contacting me at foodie@eatingoxford.com so we can all spread the word.

Have a great Valentine’s Day, and remember that you don’t need wine or a “sweetie” to feel the love from friends and family every day of the year.
