WINNER CHOSEN. Congratulations Brad and Christina Reed!

Each month, Great Dates Orlando sends a different couple on an awesome date night. The pair becomes the “Couple at Large” and are charged with reporting back to readers the details of their night.

May’s lucky couple will be heading to the Rosen Centre Hotel to take part in the monthly Vine & Dine wine pairing dinner series inside the renowned Everglades Restaurant.  Scheduled for Friday, May 17 at 6:30pm, this five-course feast will feature a wine pairing with each course all centered around this month’s theme: “It's All a Blend,” which will focus on fusion food and blended wines.

Now in its seventh year, the Rosen Centre series invites foodies to bring their sense of adventure and their appetite to an epicurean affair designed to delight as well as educate. These events, which usually last three to four hours, feature a wine speaker who engages the attendees in casual conversation about the food and the

wine during the five-course gourmet dinner.

All Vine & Dine events begin with a welcome reception featuring wine or unique wine cocktail. Also expect wonderful raffle prizes including free bottles of wine and other wine gifts. The cost of each Vine & Dine dinner is $75 per person, plus tax and 20 percent gratuity. Valet parking is complimentary. With the exception of gratuity, Mays’ Couple at Large will be attending at no cost.
