Wine dinner photos and recap

Thanks to everyone who participated in our first ever wine dinner this past Thursday October 11. We really enjoyed hosting the event and it really seemed like everyone had a great time. Catie and our wine rep Patrick did a great job job of selecting the perfect wines. Matt came up a great menu made completely in house and from scratch, and Marci, Chris, Cory and the entire Papa’s staff did a fantastic job of serving, cooking and helping the evening run smoothly! Below you will find photos and a brief recap of the evening.

Catie did a great job of getting the rooms ready for our guests

A brief moment to relax and plan before the guests arrived

After a 30 minute reception featuring Saintsbury “Vincent Van Gris” Pinot Noir and Heitz Cellar Grignolino with Hor D’oeuvres of Pancetta-Basil wrapped Peaches and Mini Black Bean Quesadillas (sorry no pictures of this part!), all of the guests were seated.

The Appetizer course of Roasted Garlic, Herb and Cheese stuffed Tomatoes paired with Raymond Reserve Merlot (picture taken pre-roasting)

The salad course featured Spinach and Arugula tossed with Pecans, Blue Cheese Crumbles, fresh Apples and Pears, Dried Cranberries and Red Onion topped with a house-made Maple Vinaigrette. This was paired with Bouchaine Carneros Pinot Noir.

and then the pasta course of Fettuccini with Shrimp and Crab cooked in a white wine Basil Pesto, paired with Raymond Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Unfortunately we were too busy and distracted and missed our opportunity to take pictures of the main course: Slow-roasted Beef Tenderloin with mashed potatoes, fresh asparagus and a red wine gravy paired with Peju Province Cabernet Sauvignon.

Then we also missed taking pictures of the dessert course of Chocolate Mousse topped with whipped cream and raspberry sauce paired with Heitz Cellar Ink Grade Port.

After the meal was finished, Brian came out to raise a toast with everyone, tell some stories and give credit to the people who had worked the event.

Chris and Marci, who did a fantastic job of serving the meal.

We hope to do another wine dinner in the late spring/early summer. Keep an eye out for announcements on our Facebook page, here on our blog and inside the restaurant. Cheers everyone!!

We just found out that has Papa’s ranked as the fifth best pizza in the world!!! We appreciate and are flattered by the ranking (though we disagree with being ranked 2nd in Indiana, as we have always been considered Indiana’s Best!). We were ranked ahead of such legendary Chicago pizzerias like Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s and Gino’s East. Check out the top ten HERE


Another year of summer camp come and gone

This weekend marked the end of summer camps at the Culver Academies. All of us at Papa’s would like to thank the campers, counselors, workers, administrators, parents, etc. for all of your business and support this summer. We had a great time serving all of you over the last 6 weeks and look forward to seeing all of you again, whether in the fall or next summer.

Customer Celebrations @ Papa’s

A “Hello Gorgeous” surprise event was held at Papa’s recently celebrating Mrs. Sandy Keiser!! She was treated to a makeover and then dinner with friends and family here at Papa’s!! Sandy was very surprised and a great time was had by everyone in a celebration of life!

The wonderful ladies who preformed the makeover!!


Also, recently Harold and Patricia Foust (Carla’s parents) celebrated 55 years of marriage together! Since part of the family had to work, they brought everyone else in for dinner here so that we could all celebrate together!
