For those of you not familiar with the Wine Race in Memphis, it is the weekend before Memphis in May and is a time for area restaurants to get together in competition and in fun. This year's featured country was Turkey and our team name was the "Istan-Bulls" .(Get it? Haha) Teams participate in a Parade, a "Queen of the Vine" Pageant, a Grape Stomp and a Relay Race in which the teams open bottles of wine and run with glassware and bottles on their tray. It is a great time for all who participate and our way of kicking off the busy month of May. River City Management Group had a team entered from almost every company restauraunt, Mesquite Chop House-Southaven, Rum Boogie Cafe, King's Palace, The Pig on Beale and PaPa Pia's participated. Everyone had a great time despite the rainy weather. I was very proud of our team and we came in 5th out of 40 teams in the Relay Race.
Come join us next year!
