5:30 PM to 7:30 PM FOMO FEST
PMANC is taking a break from the BrewMaster and WineMaker Dinners on Friday evening at Showcase. This year, we are combining the best of those worlds into one inclusive event — the FOMO FEST. No more do you have to worry about missing out at the BeerMaker dinner, wondering what your friends are doing at the WineMaker event. We’re combining both into one event and best of all . . . it’s fun! We’ll have a beer station with curry lamb skewers, goat cheese tarts, veggie and pickle display (assorted house made pickles and olives with vegetable crudite) to compliment the beers, a wine station with delightful treats especially conceived by Portola’s Chef Jason, including crab cakes, sween corn panna cotta with wild mushrooms, cheese display, a martini bar with smoked salmon, Texas sashimi, and oysters, and a chocolate fountain with fresh fruit and cookies.
A DJ will be mixing up the music for your listening pleasure. And there may be a few surprises yet to come!
