Wendy and I hosted 30 of our friends and blog readers for a very special Winterlicious Dinner at The Wine Bar last week. Joining us at our table were Sharon from The Backseat Stylers, Nelia from Style Blog, Tamika from Shop Socials and Gail from Real Sports.

The most popular first course seemed to be the Grilled Calamari (above), served with a toasted baguette, citrus greens & tzaziki that was devoured instantly upon arrival. The main entrée was a choice of Braised Beef Cheeks, Spicy Shrimp Risotto or a Wild Mushroom Polenta.
To finish the night on a sweet note, we all shared our Maple Crème Brulee, Bread & Butter Pudding and Egg Nog with Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies with the table. The food was so delicious that we all fought over the French Fries and made it through a couple bottles of wine!
The three-course dinner that night was only $25 and the perfect excuse to catch up with friends inside a cozy wine bar on a -20 kind of night.
Our guests were also surprised with a complimentary glass of wine upon arrival – courtesy of The Wine Bar. And even before Winterlicious started, American Express Cardmembers were also given Front of the Line access to an exclusive early reservation period, making sure they got their top pick of restaurants.
