Earth Day party at Poste benefiting FRESHFARM Markets

Poste Moderne Brasserie will officially re-open its popular courtyard, “The Garden,” with an Earth Day celebration benefiting FRESHFARM Markets on Wednesday, April 22nd from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy small bites, refreshing cocktails and wine while supporting FRESHFARM Markets, an organization that has been instrumental in creating a vibrant urban enclave in Poste’s Penn Quarter neighborhood by showcasing our region’s farmers and their agricultural bounty. A $5 admittance fee will be donated to FRESHFARM Markets, and highlights from the Earth Day Garden Party include:

* Samples of truffle frites and warm gougères from Chef Robert Weland’s new small plates menu.

*Mixologist Rico Wisner's new menu of punches, available exclusively in The Garden at Poste.

* The Garden at Poste's new, all-Virginia wine list in support of regional winemakers. Representatives from local wineries will be on hand to provide tastings of their wines. Participating wineries include Kluge Estates, Pollak Vineyards, and Thibaut-Jannison Winery. Wine importer, Danny Hass will pour biodynamic and organic wines, which will be featured on the new list.

* Samples of French microbrewery beers from Jocelyn Cambier of J. Cambier Imports.

* Cheese samples by neighboring Cowgirl Creamery.
