On Thursday, September 27, Frederick Miller, Alon's Bakery and Market's new wine director (joining Alon's from Bone's), will host Francisco Carrau of Uruguay's Carrau wineries for a wine tasting with light fare at the Dunwoody location from 7-8 p.m. $20 per person. You can register online for the event. Miller will be in the Dunwoody store every Tuesday through Saturday with weekly wine tastings and in-store samplings each day.
Speaking of vintages, Alon's is a donating sponsor for the Community Assistance Center's "A Vintage Affair" on September 29. The bakery's scrumptious Moroccan chicken sandwich will be part of the spread of foods from local restaurants that gala guests will enjoy. For the past 25 years, the Community Assistance Center (formerly known as the Community Action Center) has served those in need in the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody areas and is supported by 28 congregations of all faiths.
