Social Capital Inc. (SCI) cause again Thursday night! By day, I run SCI, which connects neighbors and engages citizens in Eastern Mass. communities. This time, I'll be teaming up with several other foodie friends who are serious home cooks to provide the food side of a wine & food pairing fundraiser to support SCI's community building work. David Boyle, Vice President at Martignetti's, is kindly providing the wine for this occasion. Below is the food menu we've come up with; David will be providing a different wine for each course, designed to complement the food. I'll update it with some photos and the wine served post event. Meanwhile, we've got a couple slots still open if you're in the area and would like to join us! (leave your info in the comments).
