Wine Market Event for the Baltimore School for the Arts

While I ordinarily wouldn't mention an event at a restaurant that I haven't yet tried for myself here on Minxeats, I've made an exception for this one. The Wine Market, on Fort Ave, is offering a special prix fixe dinner to benefit the Baltimore School for the Arts. As an artist myself, one who would have loved the opportunity to attend that school (as Project Runway Christian Siriano once did), I support the effort to raise money for the organization. Plus some of the meal choices sound really delicious!

The dinner will be held on Tuesday, November 16th, with seatings available at 6:15 or 7:30 p.m. Please check the BSA Web site for more details, and call the Wine Market to make a reservation: (410) 244-6166
