Bon ( Vin'tij ) Voyage ... - It wouldn't be Vin'tij without one last party! From bubbles to Bordeaux, and everything in between, help us bid a fond farewell to the original location that has provided countless memories since 1998! The evening includes wine and small plates, and an art (+ more) auction. That's right, all of the current wall art must go! Want that table you've sat at for 12 years? It can be yours! Proceeds benefit Sinfonia Gulf Coast AND the Vin'tij Staff, who will lose 3 weeks of income during this transition. They have taken great care of us for many years, help us give back to them! Cheers to the first 20 years and here is to the next. They will be GRAND for sure...
