Beer Dinner At Le Virtu

Sly Fox and Le Virtu are combining to do a tasting dinner next Thursday. This is the first time we can recall a beer dinner featuring Italian food.

Sly Fox beers will be $3 after dinner in the newly liquor friendly garden. The liquor license has recently been extended to include the outdoor courtyard.

The event begins at 6:30 and tickets to the five course meal are $45 per person.
