"Boutique Wine" Welcome Reception

March 31, 2017 - 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The Auld Dubliner Lounge
at The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel

Enjoy a hand-picked selection of boutique wines from small, intensely-focused wineries. Crafted with passion and available in limited quantities, these wines are hand-crafted by artisanal vintners.

"Component Tasting" Dinner

March 31, 2017 - 8:00 to 10:30 p.m.
Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy'

Gain a fresh perspective as you discover the art of creating flavor bridges between food and wine. Every food and wine has a flavor profile. When flavor profiles are overlapped (present in both the food and wine) the tasting experience becomes more vivid and component flavors burst to the forefront.


"Jameson Caskmates" Lunch & Program

April 1, 2017 - 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub & Grill

Discover the character-building effects of barrel-aging—a technique in which seasoned casks pass along some of their personality to another libation. Set your palette with separate tastings of Irish Whiskey and Irish Stout. Explore the impact of barrel-aging each in a cask seasoned with the other.


"Bourbon + Bacon" Dinner

April 1, 2017 - 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
One Eleven Main

Greatest. Combination. Ever.

Two of America’s favorite flavors, bourbon and bacon, have amazing chemistry. The sweet, caramel undercurrents of bourbon deliciously match up with bacon’s rich, salty crunch. This multi-course dinner is a bacon and bourbon-infused bash!


Hot Boutique Breakfast

Hot Boutique Breakfast for two each morning. Hot item varies daily—plus, freshly baked scones!


Live Entertainment

Hearthfire Duo performs Friday and Saturday night at Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub & Grill.
