Best Wine Bar Ever: Wine & Spirits' Top 100 Tasting Event
Where: City View at Metreon, 101 4th St.
When: Wed., October 12, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The rundown: There are lots of different kinds of
lushes social drinkers but perhaps my most favorite are the winos. They are just so special. Usually waiting until the work day is over, they kick off their pumps and get loose over a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau. The evening has come to an end when they stare deep into your eyes and force you into a heart-to-heart about something uncomfortable. But they are mostly tons of fun, know a lot about what they're drinking, and love sharing their vino knowledge.
That's why Wine & Spirits magazine's Top 100 Tasting is gonna be such a good time.
The magazine assembles their favorite wines and winemakers from across the globe, and the event is the perfect opportunity to sample the rare, unusual, and superb. Add to that a lineup of notable eats from Jasper's, Boxing Room, Txoko, Dosa, Alexander's Steakhouse, Piccino, Leopold's, Hog Island Oysters, Fra'mani Charcuterie, Socola Chocolates, Kika' Treats, and Barefoot Coffee. Hot damn!
So you'll be drunk and full, surrounded by convivial
lushes social drinkers, soaking up all their merriment and good cheer. Just remember, when the clock strikes 8:30 p.m., get the hell outta there before you're forced to hear about someone's lazy left Fallopian tube.
