Lucy Restaurant and Bar at Bardessono
Thursday, November 8
7:00 p.m.

Striking the delicate balance between timeless luxury and innovative culinary, Bardessono’s Lucy restaurant will present a Chocolate Pairing Dinner, in collaboration with Kollar Chocolates and B Cellars, for a decadent take on the traditional pairing experience. Tying into the early influence of chocolate as a bitter companion rather than a sugary treat in its South America roots, the four-course menu will introduce savory selections of thoughtfully designed dishes before transitioning into a tasty treat to top off the evening. Each chocolate-inspired dish will have an expertly paired wine available for an optimized palate.

Set for its debut on Thursday, November 8, 2018, the Chocolate Pairing Dinner will take place at Bardessono’s Lucy restaurant, beginning with a chocolate cocktail reception at 7 p.m. and proceeding with the 4-course pairing dinner, with presentation by Executive Chef Nate Lindsay and Artisan Chocolatier Chef Chris Kollar. Reservations can be made for $125 per plate, with the option to purchase the wine pairing for an additional cost, at (707) 204-6008 or by emailing events@bardessono.com.

Napa Valley Museum Yountville
Saturday, November 10
11:00 a.m.

This family-friendly exhibition, organized with San Francisco’s Walt Disney Family Museum, explores the influence that railroad trains had on Walt Disney’s life and work. It also tells the story of how his railroading legacy lives on to this day in Disney films and theme parks around the world. The exhibition includes a wide variety of artifacts, firsthand accounts, archival videos, images of Walt and his trains, and one-of-a kind items, including Walt Disney’s own Carolwood gondola railroad car, an illuminated model of Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A, and a custom model train created in partnership with the Napa Valley Wine Train by the Napa Valley Model Railroad Historical Society. We learn how Walt’s passion for trains inspired Disney studio short cartoons and feature films, and influenced his personal life at home. Guest curator Michael Campbell, President Emeritus of the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society, constructed the exhibition to reflect Walt’s railroad journey from his early years to the creation of Disneyland and beyond, and reminds us that, over a century later, Walt’s railroading influence remains a vibrant and relevant force. Includes an exclusive audio tour created by exhibit curator Michael Campbell, narrated by longtime Disney announcer Bill Rogers, and Disney train-themed merchandise in our Museum Store. Museum closed Mondays & Tuesdays.
