Dresden, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from Fornier, Rioja Reserva from Solar Viejo, evacuated Noir from the Fornier Winery's Loire. Alcoholic beverages such as Ouzo, San Miguel beer from the tap, white and red sangria, and more will also be served.
The wines and alcohol complement perfectly the Mediterranean menu, with light dishes carefully prepared by Rosette Hinawi as the perfect complement to a glass of wine, or alternatively serve as appetisers to a full meal with meat from the iconic family butcher shop: merguez sausage (46 NIS); Kebab with a grilled salad (46 NIS); Yoghurt and fresh mint beside stuffed grape leaves and tomato prepared in a Taboon (hearth oven) (NIS 54) and more.

This is sure to become one of the most top spots in Jaffa.

Meanwhile, enjoy a trailer of the live version of The Sound of Goosesteps.
The program in its entirety will be presented in English.
Much has been said about the representation of Nazism and the holocaust in various genres. Musicals, however, have mostly been overlooked, much due to their perception as escapist entertainment. Yet, as an American art form, the musical is a fascinating source through which to examine changing American attitudes towards Nazism and the holocaust.
Cantor, music theatre performer and researcher Eyal Sherf will present a special virtual edition of his acclaimed lecture-concert The Sound of Goosesteps. This follows a live presentation at Center Stage, the country’s first professional English theater venue, where the show was received enthusiastically earlier this year.
The Sound of Goosesteps is directed by Udi Razzin, and produced by Center Stage’s co-founding executive artistic director Daniella Crankshaw.
What artistic differences arose surrounding the visual representation of Nazism in The Sound of Music, why were the Jewish creators of Cabaret perceived as anti-Semitic, and
how wanting revenge propelled The Producers. All this and more in a fascinating evening incorporating hand-picked videos and live singing.
