Clementine is hosting a fall harvest festival dinner, 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., on Sept. 23. The evening will feature a five-course dinner paired with ciders from Monkton's Millstone Cellars.

On the menu are hearty game dishes like granola-crusted venison, bacon-wrapped rabbit loin and roast pheasant breast with cornbread dressing and cinnamon honey tomato jam.

The menu is a collaboration between Clementine owner Winston Blick and the restaurant's new head chef, Bill Buszinski, formerly of Mr. Rain's Fun House.

Tickets for the Clementine Millstone Fall Cider Geequinox Feast are $80. The full menu and ticket information are here.

• For the first time in its 26-year history, the "best in show" winner at the annual Maryland Governor’s Cup Competition was a winery from the Eastern Shore. Bordeleau Vineyard & Winery won the Governor’s Cup for its Cabernet Sauvignon Amarone Style 2008, a wine that is made from 100 percent estate Cabernet and produced with partially dried grapes in the Italian tradition. The grapes were grown at Bordeleau’s vineyard in Eden, Wicomico County, south of Salisbury. The judging for the awards took place last month in Timonium.
