You either love it…or you REALLY, REALLY HATE IT! That’s the dealio when it comes to Beverly, a carbonated drink popular in Italy (or so they say) made by the Coca-Cola company.

Wine Bar George will be headed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes — one of only 230 Master Sommeliers in the world — and will be located across from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and next to Raglan Road’s Hole in the Wall.

The 210-seat wine bar will be built to resemble a winemaker’s home estate, and the featured wines will represent established wineries as well as “up-and-coming growing regions and wineries.” Wine Bar George will also serve small plates, with 7-12 items on the menu.

At Wednesday’s groundbreaking the Master Sommelier even took part in the inaugural champagne sabering!

News: Breakfast with Santa at T-Rex Cafe in Disney Springs in December

We’re used to dining with friends at T-Rex Cafe.

Among our pals in this prehistoric dining joint are a Triceratops, a Wooly Mammoth, and a gigantic moving Octopus.

But for select dates in December, another friend — and his wife — will be joining guests at T-Rex in the Marketplace of Disney Springs. Because Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be the honored guests at Breakfast with Santa!

Typically, T-Rex only serves Lunch and Dinner. However, on December 17th, 18th, 22nd, and 23rd, T-Rex will host a breakfast buffet that will also feature easy access to Early Bird Shopping at the World of Disney Store (from 9 – 10 am), and the T-Rex Dino Store in addition to the chance to meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
