Somms Under Fire

6 p.m. Jan. 28. $75-$750. AT&T Hotel & Conference Center, 1900 University Ave.

The country’s foremost live sommelier wine and food pairing competition returns, this time with sommeliers from Chicago, Washington State and Michigan. It’ll kick off with a cocktail competition, followed by the pairing featuring cuisine from the Carillon restaurant within the AT&T Hotel. The sommeliers will select an appropriate wine to pair with the dishes in front of a panel of expert judges and the audience — who will also get to taste each of the courses. In addition to the judges, audience members will get to choose the winner of a Fan Favorite contest.
