Dear Friends: 

Summer is here and as luck would have it, for the first time in a long time, Books & Books’ air-conditioning has broken down on us! Unfortunately, we will need a new part that has been ordered but has not arrived and we do not want to subject you to the true “Wines of Summer” experience 😉 therefore, tonight’s dinner is going to be rescheduled for the following Monday, August 12. Same time, same place. By then our air-conditioning will be fixed and everything should be flowing smoothly. 

We deeply apologize for this inconvenience and hope this message reaches you in time. Please feel free to call us directly, if you have any questions or concerns. Contact: Cristina Nosti, director of events & marketing at Books & Books: 786-554-1764. 

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you on August 12 for a wonderful dinner experience. 

Books & Books 

If there’s anything better than a glass of good wine, it’s a glass of good wine with the perfect food pairing. This month, Chef Allen Susser and The Café at Books & Books will partner with wine expert Patrick Alexander to bring you a three-course, gourmet meal paired with the perfect glass of white or red. Expect to learn something while you eat, as Patrick Alexander will explain the journey from vine to glass leaving you knowledgeable, confident and full! The perfect dinner for the casual sipper and the sophisticated sommelier.

Celebrate the Wines of Summer!
