Ah yes, another delightful night at Le Café de Paris and the First Thursday Tapas Night. Robin is intently listening to the music. A very different venue … but a very good one. Here is what Matheiu Choux, Owner, said,

Thursday, August 5
Bonjour Mes Amis,
First Thursday is upon us once again. We will be featuring American Tapas, and wine tastings from local winery, Cinder. We will be hosting the signing for the premier book on Idaho wines, by author and photographer, Alan Minskoff, and Paul Hosefros, entitled “Idaho Wine Country.”

Bon Appetit, Mathieu

And so it was a delightful evening. The restaurant was very full, more so than I have seen it in the past. But then, we arrived there later than usual, around 7:00pm. Maybe it was the American Tapas that attracted so many people; Maybe it was the book signing and the local topic of the Idaho Wine Country; Maybe it was the attraction of having another awesome meal. As Jay Leno would say, “Here, you be the judge.” Along with our dinner, we had an award winning 2008 Cinder Viognier. Here are some photos of what we had. Cheers!!
