Here is your chance to experience Parallel 38 like you never have experienced it before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry. It’s The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions, presented by McGuireWoods. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Parallel 38 has created a signature experience available to whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Parallel 38 is generously donating the entire experience, which means the winning bid goes directly to the food bank. Each dollar donated is enough to provide four meals to the area’s hungry. So, a winning bid of, say, $2,000 would mean not just a wonderful meal for the winner and their guests, but also 8,000 more meals for the area’s hungry.
The Parallel 38 signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:
Wine Class and Tasting Menu for Ten
The auction winner and nine guests will enjoy an evening of the two things for which Parallel 38 is known best: wine and food. Parallel 38 has the largest list of wines by the glass in town, with more than 100 selections carefully chosen by co-owner and certified Advanced Sommelier Justin Ross. The guests’ evening will begin with a wine seminar from Ross himself, covering a range of wines, including some from the restaurant’s very special “trophy” wine collection, which typically sell for $20-$70 per glass. Next, guests will enjoy a multi-course tasting menu, with each course paired with wines from the class. The tasting menu will include some of the Parallel 38 kitchen’s favorite dishes, plus a few off-menu surprises. Finally, an array of desserts will be served with a taste of the legendary Sauternes Chateau D’Yquem. A dream evening of incredible wine and food at Parallel 38.
Note: The winner will schedule the dinner with Parallel 38 at a mutually convenient time.
