October 18
If you have never experienced one of Dream Dance Steak's sommelier showdowns, now is your chance. These events offer exciting, interactive dining at it's finest. At our next showdown, diners will delight in four courses—like a crab cake with frisée lettuce, pickled red onion and lavosh, and bacon-wrapped ostrich with cranberry lime chutney, a sweet potato tart and Brussels sprouts.

Each course will be served with two wines, one chosen by each sommelier. And, here's the interactive part—you vote on whose wines you prefer for each course. You'll receive a ballot to mark which wine, either A or B (it's anonymous, of course!), is best.

At this special event, we have two outstanding sommeliers—Jaclyn Stuart and Brendan Moore. Both sommeliers are very accomplished in the field—Stuart co-authored The Complete Idiots Guide to Wine & Food Pairing and Moore is both a second-level sommelier accredited by the Court of Master Sommeliers and a certified sommelier from the Society of Wine Educators—so this is sure to be a fantastic evening.

Arrival is 6 p.m.; dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $75 per person.

Reserve your seats today by calling 414-847-7883.

Congratulations to the $100,000 Cash Giveaway Winners
