Summer Heights Dinner

  • Hopscotch 802 West John Street Champaign, IL, 61820 United States (map)

Summer Heights dinner

Come celebrate peak summer at Hopscotch Bakery + Market with a wine dinner by private chefs Mark Hartstein and Leslie Bettridge (AKA Shades & Punchy). The menu features as much of the bounty of the summer as plausible -- think fruits, berries, veggies, flowers, greens, herbs -- it’s so difficult to leave anything aside. The dinner is aggressively local, with produce sourced from Blue Moon Farm, Sola Gratia, The Seasonal Plate, Prairie Fruits Farm, and others.

To quench a summer thirst, Mark and Leslie will introduce and pour three wines from Bichi, an exciting natural wine label from Tecate, Baja California. The wine makers grow or source biodynamic and organic grapes from heritage (and often reclaimed) vineyards, and produce "vinos sin maquillaje" (wines without makeup) using traditional methods with minimal interventions. Bottles will be made available for purchase through the kindness of Drew Starkey and Bacaro restaurant.
