Summer officially kicks off this week, with 95° weather and 7 Days for SIDS. (Read my 2007 post about 7 Days for SIDS.)
I haven’t listed all the events or all the participating restaurants. But you can check out the official web site to find out when and where each restaurant is offering discounts or donations that support the charity. As I mentioned previously, now that I run my own charity, I can appreciate the importance of supporting events like this.
Thanks to 7 Days for SIDS, there are a lot of competing events this week, particularly on Tuesday night. There are so many that I thought it better to split them up and you can find the Featured Events list after the jump.
For the full list of Cincinnati tastings, both one-time and recurring, refer to our Google Calendar on this page. For information on what’s going on in Dayton, you can refer to Mark’s blog at Uncorked.
Tell the retailers we sent you, and have a great weekend!
