Bartlett a la Carte to offer tasty samples April 30

Bartlett-a-la-carte-logoFoodies who love to try new tidbits and sip samples of wine and beer should be sure to check out a popular annual event this weekend. Bartlett a la Carte will be a tempting event on April 30.

The two-hour food-lovers’ party will begin at 5 p.m. at the Colonial Country Club, 2736 Countrywood Parkway, Cordova. BACC bills it as a fun-filled evening of food, beverages and socializing with a silent auction. A piano jazz quartet will keep the festive atmosphere going throughout the night.

The event currently has drawn about 24 participating vendors who are allowed to showcase their wares at no cost. Typically, 300 or more people show up for Bartlett a la Carte each year.

Tickets to the event are $45 for individuals, $80 for a couple and $400 for a block of 10 tickets. The proceeds will benefit Youth Villages.

Bartlett a la Carte is presented by BACC and the Northeast Shelby Country Rotary Club, and it is sponsored by Brother.
