Vino!

Posted January 24, 2020

It's wine tasting time, people! The Wine Fest is coming to The Tunnel nightclub here in the city tomorrow. Wine samples, food, live entertainment and interactive games will be the order of the day. All vino-centric, of course! Listen up for details:

There will be two sessions running 3 1/2 hours each (that's a lotta fermented grapes). One begins at 1 p.m. (day drinking!) and another at the proper cocktail hour of 6.

Wine purveyors will include Ferreira Carpenter, Carolina Wine Brands, Drink Marcel and Free Fall Sangria and Coastal Ridge. Most of the vintners are not well known so you'll have a chance to discover that perfect pinot you've been looking so long for.

Food will be both multicultural and yummy--the New York way. Think Mozzarepas, Chavas Empanadas, Taste of Poland, Angry Archies Seafood and more.

Obviously you must be 21-years-old to attend, and don't even think about bringing the kiddos. Tickets cost $70 and with that you'll receive a souvenir five-ounce tasting glass and samples of all the wine offered, (Food must be purchased separately.)

Don't drink but want to hang with your buddies that do? A Designated Driver ticket will run you only $15, and you'll still be able to enjoy the entertainment and interactive games while you cheer on your guzzling pals.
