Outstanding in the Field Dinner Event at Monteillet Fromagerie
Date:
July 18, 2013
Location:
Monteillet Fromagerie
Description:
Join us July 18th, 2013 when Outstanding in the Field returns to Walla Walla, for a rare chance to experience this international touring event. We are so very honored to pair our wines with the culinary talents of Brasserie Four's Hannah Macdonald at the beautiful Monteillet Fromagerie. The mission is to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 we have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum. Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table. Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and generally prepared by a celebrated chef of the region. After a tour of the site, we all settle in: farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners sharing the long table.

Friday, July 19th Live @ Sapolil - Hamilton Loomis Blues/Soul/Rock
Date:
July 19, 2013
Location:
Sapolil Cellars, 15 E Main Street, Walla Walla, WA
Description:
“If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it”, says Guitar Player Magazine. An apt description, as young Loomis is one of the young artists at the forefront of bringing blues based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary audience. Spanning youth and tradition, Loomis bridges the gap between generations of music-lovers both in the U.S. and around the world. 

Whereas similar aged acts like Black Keys, Robert Randolph and White Stripes play American rock music with heavy blues influences, Loomis plays the inverse. His is an undeniably blues based artist escalating into what All Music Guide calls “…a mixed bag of modern blues, modern funk, and slick soul.” 
Tickets are available now online - http://www.hamiltonloomis.com/sapolil.htm Tickets purchased online (via the link) are $15. If purchased at the door, ticket price goes up to $20. Get your tickets soon for this event! 9 - Midnight
