Ever heard of a Porch Pounder? It’s the label wine industry people give to wines that go down easily, won’t break the bank and always deliver. It’s a crowd pleaser. Open one at the end of a long week, and you’re sure to start off the weekend in a good place. We’ve partnered with Bin 604 to bring to you the Porch Pounder of the Month and a few other wine suggestions. The staff at Bin 604 regularly tastes over one-hundred wines every week, so you can count on the selections to be ones you’ll want to pound on the porch…or anywhere at all!

Vino Festa from Everyman Theatre and Foreman Wolf

Festa Vino

catch of the day fish (2)It’s not quite March yet, but you’d better snatch up your tickets now for Vino Festa, an Italian festival of wine and food to take place at the new Everyman Theatre. Why plan so far ahead? Because the fab event features an irresistible custom menu from Tony Foreman of Foreman Wolf Restaurants. And this is no show-up-and-sit-down affair.  Guests will wander the rooms of Everyman’s new home to find signature Italian dishes alongside fine wines and mouth watering pastries. Beyond food (if there is such a thing), there will “pop-up” style performances by opera singers at the piano on the mezzanine, commedia dell’arte performance troupes, and period-style swordfighters throughout the evening. In other words, prepare for all of the decadence and festivity of a traditional Italian street fair.

The Hiring Conundrum: An Interview with Tony Foreman

Tony Foreman

We all have challenges recruiting and retaining talent. When we hire wrong or when we lose talent we thought was with us for the long haul, it sets us back. I recently sat down with Tony Foreman, who runs some of the leading restaurants in town through the Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group, to understand how they get the people side right and to see what lessons might extend beyond restaurants to all organizations.

What Mom should have Taught You… As will become clear, Tony’s approach to recruiting is frustratingly simple. Simple in that the issues he explores seem self-evident; frustrating in that they’re hard to put in practice, unless they’re ingrained as habits beyond simply hiring. So with a smile, Tony started right out. “I can’t teach you what your mother should have taught you.” “Are you nice, do you have manners, do you hustle” – in his world this also includes do you love “eating food, drinking, talking about it.”
