Pot au Feu Beaujolais Nouveau Wine Festival- The wine festival continues for three additional nights due to the popularity of the annual Barrel Dinners held at the restaurant. The walls of the restaurant are lined with empty bottles of past releases of the Nouveau Beaujolais. There is also a large collection of wooden wine barrels from years of dinners where the barrel is tapped and dinner guests line up to fill their glasses from the wooden spigot. Each year Burke opens the spigot which remains open until the last glass is filled. A nasty old tin plate collects the spillage as guests try to time the placement of their glass under the nonstop stream pouring out of the barrel.Each year Burke threatens to share the spillage “with every glass in the room” which gives guests extra incentive to avoid spillage.
