The LBC puts a continental twist on Happy Hour with the aperitif a la Francaise– the refreshing drink that stimulates the appetite and enhances your mood without making your head spin.
More interesting than a glass of wine, but not as fuzzying as a full-blown cocktail, it is just the best way in the world to shrug off the cares of the day and ready your spirit for the joys to come.
An aperitif, when enjoyed with a friend and accompanied by light, cheesy, nutty nibbles, becomes the pre-dinner ritual known in France as “Apero,” *
Join us for Apero! 3-6pm (Call ahead if you would like a table “al fresco” on the porch.)
It’s almost like being in France where the day winds down slowly.
Fun fact: Some authentic French aperitifs feature complex and intriguing vermouths and other fortified wines that were originally formulated as a cure. Just what we need for the New Normal!
This heart felt description of Apero is inspired by American author Wini Moranville.
