Superior Motors will host a “Night + Day” dinner featuring a six-course meal of nightshade vegetables paired with wines by Brianne Day of Day Wines in Willamette Valley, Oregon.

The special menu will be offered Oct. 13 at the restaurant at 1211 Braddock Ave., Braddock.

According to a release, Day has garnered many accolades for her Oregon wines since starting Day Wines in 2012. Day Wines distributes more than 5,000 cases to more than 12 states and three countries.

“I think that the spice levels of the different nightshades will complement the wines that were selected,” Day says in the release.

“In particular, I’m looking forward to matching up the textures of the wines with the fall vegetables and proteins,” she adds.

Nightshade fruits and vegetables are a broad group of plants from the solanum and capsicum families. Diners can expect primarily peppers (not super spicy) in each course; other nightshades could include tomatoes, eggplant and certain types of berries.

A vegan menu option is available as well.

Tickets are $85, with optional wine pairings, $55, or spirit-free pairings, $30.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
