Reds, Whites and the Blues

comment

With more than 200 wines being poured, it should be easy to find the perfect match for pork tostadas from chef Susan Spicer's Mondo or sliced tenderloin from Ruth's Chris Steak House. Those are a couple of the small plates that will be served at Reds, Whites and the Blues. Attendees can sip wine and sample dishes from 11 area restaurants, including Domenica, Mike's on the Avenue, Byblos, Ralph's on the Park and others. Musical entertainment is by classical guitarist Javier Olondo, a native of Houston who studied in Spain and Cuba. He teaches at Tulane University and Escola Professional de Musica Alois Haba in Barcelona. The event supports the Big Easy Foundation, which presents the annual Big Easy Awards recognizing achievement in music, theater and classical arts. There's also a raffle for a prize package of 150 bottles of wine. Event tickets $60 in advance, $70 at the door. — Jamie Carroll
