Back by popular demand, The Stranger’s News Editor Dominic Holden will have control of the mic on November 22nd as the French-American Chamber of Commerce fêtes the 21st Annual Beaujolais Nouveau Wine Festival at the Columbia Tower Club. Dominic was born in southwest France in the tiny village of Domme, which is how he got his name, and grew up in Seattle, the son of wine writers and wine-tour operators. As he says, though he doesn’t speak French, he drinks it!
Be sure you have your tickets to celebrate l’arrivé du Beaujolais Nouveau with Dominic and the Francophile community of Seattle.
