The Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society has joined with local wine expert and NOW columnist John Gerum to host a special Taste of Poco Spirit event on Saturday, Feb. 16 at The Gathering Place in Leigh Square.
This year marks Port Coquitlam's 100th birthday, and this "Centennial Edition" celebration promises to be an unforgettable night of wine and food, according to a press release from the heritage and cultural society.
The evening will begin with a toast of sparkling wine sponsored by Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits, and continue with the wine tasting, featuring selections that have been specially chosen for their "history."
Accompanying the wines will be a variety of food pairings from Earls Kitchen and Bar, and Chico and Tim will provide musical entertainment.
To sustain the magic of the night, a long stemmed rose from Floral Revelry will be provided for each of the ladies. Period costumes are optional.
The event begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $45 and include a souvenir wine glass. Tickets can be purchased at the customer service booth in The Outlet at Leigh Square or online at www.pocoheritage. org.
Funds raised will support the New Heritage Centre at Leigh Square.
