Green Drinks at LCS
No, this is not an early St Patrick’s Day Celebration…….
Like many bartenders, wine is my weak spot, and I am always looking for ways to increase my knowledge, especially working in a restaurant that is known for wine.
On Wednesday January 28th, La Casa Sena in conjunction with Green Drinks (www.greendrinks.org) is hosting a seminar on organic and biodynamic wine.
This is open to anyone: no reservation needed. Here is the press release for the event:

La Casa Sena Cellar Lounge is Santa Fe’s little classy hideaway, located next to the restaurant. The Cellar Lounge was chosen for this month’s Green Drinks because they participate in commercial recycling and source locally produced food products whenever possible. According to the most recent survey, 64% of Green Drinkers want to support environmental initiatives with their dollars and find that restaurants that participate in commercial recycling, win their vote. In addition, The Wine Cellar offers a nice selection of organic, biodynamic, salmon-friendly, and New Mexico wines.
