STEPH DEROSA: MONTHLY WINE SPECIAL IS NOW WEEKLY! >>>
Well Iâ€™ll be damned. For some strange reason, and I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s just because her new bifocals have been messing with her brain, but Megan The Red Hot bartender has not 86â€™d Bandito Betty and me from Wino Wednesdays at said Sixth Avenue tavern. Thatâ€™s some messy luck right there, if you ask me.
Once again, one of my favorite all-time drinking establishments, The Red Hot, will be hosting a night for those of us who dabble in drinks of the fermented grape varietal. Tonight, you can join me and bifocal-wearing Megan for large pours of Vintage Ink, Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir, 14 Hands Cab, and Tilia Malbec/Syrah Blend during The Red Hotâ€™s NOW weekly Wino Wednesday event. If you prefer things on the lighter side, bifocal Megan will be pouring whites such as Kestrel Pure Platinum, Kamiak White, and 14 Hands Chardonnay â€" all for only $3.
Look, I know itâ€™s my job to try and convince you that this shit is cool and you really need to be there, but in this instance Iâ€™m not kidding when I say youâ€™re surely missing out if you intend on skipping this one. True story: This past Friday the Weekly Volcanoâ€™s very own Sandee Glib (remember her?) brought over an obscene amount of Tilia Malbec/Syrah Blend for my cronies and me to experience, and it surprisingly rocked our world. So much so that I wanted to bathe in Tilia Malbec/Syrah Blend that night. The stuff is good, I jest you not.
I mean, think about it â€" who knows more about getting your wine-drink on than me? Besides Lindsey Lohan. What? Too soon?
