Cape wines and cowboy hats!

You don’t see many events linking Texas and South Africa, but add one more to that short list when Beijing Wine Club holds a holding a fundraiser on July 14 at Tim’s Texas Roadhouse to benefit the HIV/AIDS programs run by Prevention through Education, a charity with which the wine club’s Gabriel Suk is involved. (Note: This event is at the new Tim’s, on Super Bar Street, across from 5:19 and Pili Pili.)

Look for five South African Western Cape Wines – three reds, two whites – and Tex-Mex food. There will be a raffle for cowboy boots, diamonds, wine and vouchers for Beijing restaurants, along with, states the invite, “Western-themed games where you can test your marksmanship skills or try your hand at lassoing a cow.”

The event is 150 kuai per person and proceeds go to a new PTE online peer counseling center. The sponsors include the South African Embassy, ASC Fine Wines, Tim’s Texas Roadhouse, SAB Miller and S.A. Michael Diamonds.
