Celebrate National Chocolate Day on September 13th at Four Seasons Resort Orlando During Special Capa Event
National Chocolate Day is September 13th, 2017 and the Four Seasons Resort Orlando is celebrating with a special event at their beautiful rooftop restaurant, Capa. Master Sommelier George Miliotes, who is opening Wine Bar George early next year at Disney Springs will be presenting dessert wines and specialty drinks at the event. It sounds wonderful, I won't be in town to attend but this should be a very special evening if you love chocolate and wine. I recommend reserving this one early.
Wine Bar George is now scheduled to open in early 2018 (originally it was to be fall 2017). The upcoming restaurant is now hiring! I posted the press release below with a couple of pieces of concept art, but bookmark the website as well. Master Sommelier George Miliotes will be at a number of events this fall, including the Four Seasons Orlando on September 13th for a National Chocolate Day event, and The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival for a beverage seminar on September 11th, Party for the Senses on September 23rd, and an event with STK on October 20th. Keep reading for more information on the restaurant!

Today is National Watermelon Day! On August 3rd, many of the most popular restaurants at Disney Springs are showcasing watermelon. We were at Vivoli il Gelato yesterday, and I do recommend the watermelon sorbetto - that should be available all month long and is gluten free, dairy free and vegan.
