Small Bites: This week’s restaurant news

What grows together, goes together
Local food and wine go together like a horse and carriage, or on Saturday, June 30 at Keswick Vineyards, like a horse and buggy. At 11am and again at 1pm, Keswick winemaker Stephen Barnard and Horse & Buggy Produce founder Brett Wilson will lead an in-depth discussion on the merits of eating and drinking locally. Guests can sample food prepared with Horse & Buggy Produce alongside Keswick’s wines. The sessions cost $12 for wine club members and $15 for nonmembers. Call 244-3341 x105 or e-mail info@keswick to reserve your space.

Happy days are here again
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are already hard enough to get through, so treat yourself to a meal at Tempo to get you to the top of the weekday hump. The cost of a three-course prix fixe? $29 (excluding tax and tip). Not having to cook so early in the week? Priceless.

Cupcakes and coffee
Try your hand at cupcake decorating at Mudhouse on Tuesday, July 3, from 10-11am. All ages are welcome. Pre-register at either the Crozet or Downtown location and pay $10 for four cupcakes to decorate and a box to carry them in. Whether they make it home is up to you.

We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.
