It’s OK to whine about the summer heat, but drink some wine while you’re at it.

Maynards Market & Kitchen’s Summer Wine Tour is stopping in France for a Northern France wine dinner from 7 – 9 p.m. on Friday, June 22.

This week’s French cuisine is being crafted by the restaurant’s executive chef Brian Smith, who will also be accompanied by Mike Galkin from Action Beverages.

Seats are $60 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

If you can’t make it out to this dinner, there’s plenty of other stops on the Summer Wine Tour in the following months.
