Redbird Wine Dinner

Redbird Wine Dinner

Last year, C-CAP (the non-profit Careers through Culinary Arts Program) held a charity dinner at the Vibiana special event center located in the former St. Vibiana’s cathedral in downtown Los Angeles. Plans were underway to open a gourmet restaurant in the rectory of the facility and name it ‘Redbird’. During the course of the evening, a gourmet dinner at Redbird for a party of 10 was auctioned off and a group of us were fortunate to be the winning bidders.

So the time came this April to collect on our winnings with an incredible gastronomic feast at the new “IT” eatery.
