A wine dinner without meat?

I'm putting this in here because wine dinners are a popular feature at restaurants these days. But I haven't heard of a vegetarian wine dinner until now. I received the following notice from Evan' s Kitchen in East Sac. I admire his daring, since going meatless for such a big dinner is a risk.

Here's what Evan's sent me:
