Feasting at Monkeypod Kitchen is one of my favorite things to do in Wailea. Jason Vendrell, Beverage Manager Extraordanaire just announced that they will be hosting a wine dinner around pizza, a fresh idea that will embody both casual and upscale in a five course extravaganza. I cant think of a better way to consume 4 courses of pizza paired with my second favorite food group: wine.
Vendrell says, “Peter Merriman created some awesome pizzas and I just paired wines I thought would be complimentary.” The choices range in whites and reds, American and European.
Call for your reservation at (808) 891-2322, the fun starts at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, November 16th, It’s only going to cost $45.
