Txakoli Fest at Six Plates

This Saturday, Six Plates will be holding their "Txakoli Fest," presenting a day full of live music and wine. Their purpose: spreading the good word about txakoli wine (pronounced “chah-ko-lee”), which is produced in the Basque country of Spain. It's a delightful but under appreciated summer wine, a very dry and slighly sparkling white. As it pairs well with oysters, head chef Ted Domville will be crafting six different versions of oysters on the half-shell.

There is a five dollar cover charge, but it comes with a free txakoli glass. It also includes a full line up of bands, the schedule for which is listed below:
2:00-3:20 Shana TW
3:40-5:00 The Little Gentlemen
5:20-6:40 Caruso
7:00-8:20 Arielle Bryant
8:40-10:00 Jon Anonymous
10:20-11ish The Beast
11:30-2am DJ Dae
