DINNER 280: Saturday, October 7, 2006

Tonight we dined at the Wine Dinner at the IRON HORSE INN in Glendale, and we were a large group — 15 of us, more than half the total number of participants! And what a dinner it was. Chef Chris did a great job with this menu, which is one of our favorites at the Wine Dinner ever.
