Don't miss the moonshine dinner this week

I've attended two moonshine tastings and tried a variety of legalized moonshines. I haven't been impressed. I am excited to try the moonshine cocktails at Shine & Dine on Wednesday.

The Moonshine dinner at Mario's Pizza & Italian Restaurant is a collaboration between house chef Craig Gillenwalters, Johnson & Wales Chef Karl Stybe and mixologist Richard Orrey. Master distiller "Buck," has been making shine since before NASCAR. This will be my first moonshine dinner. I'm hyped!

The menu looks delicious, and I'm not just talking about the food! See for yourself!

Mario’s Italian Restaurant, 2945 Matthews Weddington Road, Matthews. RSVP: 704-847-4884. $60.
