Sake, Bourbon, and Apple Pie – November 2012
Timely marketing of our events is my kryptonite.
There I've said it.
They say admission is always the first step in self-help so now the healing can begin. This healing will commence today, November 1st, with Sake, continue next week with Scotch, keep on continuing with Beaujolais Nouveau on the 15th, and conclude healing with Bourbon and apple pie the Monday before Thanksgiving.
Sake Tasting – Thursday, November 1, 6pm
Join us from 6pm to 8pm as Stella from Joto Sake guides us through a tasting of six different sake of six different styles and grades for only $10! Ginjo, Daiginjo, Nigori, as well as a Honjozo and some fun sparkling sake will be sampled. No reservation required.
Scotch Tasting – Thursday, November 8, 6pm
Round two of spiritual healing begins at 6pm on Thursday, November 8th as Chris Uhde of ImpEx Beverages learns us on some Scotch Whisky. Your twenty bones will get you samples of five different whiskies from a few of Scotland's finest small distillers, allow you to compare differences of region and age, and your own whisky glass which you get to keep! Scotches from Isle of Arran (14 year), Kilchoman (the first new distillery on Islay in 124 years!), Isle of Skye, and Smokehead Scotch will be tasted. Feel free to RSVP.
Beaujolais Tasting – Thursday, November 15, 6pm
DO NOT MISS OUT on Beaujolais Nouveau this year! Get your butts down here on Thursday, November 15th for a bacchanal of fresh gamay and charcuterie. We'll provide the wine and Wedge Cheese Shop will provide the nibbles. $20 all you can drink of this year's delicious vintage (we never do that!). We'll be pouring air-freighted Dupeuble Beaujolais and may have some from Foillard as well.
Bourbon & Apple Pie Tasting – Monday, November 19, 6pm
Fireworks and hot dogs? I don't think so. When I think of America (particularly at this time of year) I think of Bourbon, Turkey, and apple pie. And hordes of family members crammed into the in-law's house reliving every horror of adolescence from eating at the card table to getting attacked by granny's poodle (I hated that dog!).
I always find a strong bottle of Bourbon (or two) to be of great comfort during the holiday season and I thought our customers might as well. Come sample four distinctly different Bourbons with us on Monday, November 19th alongside some amazing apple pie and bourbon ice cream. It should be a great way to find just the right bottle for any holiday discomfort headed your way! Twenty dollars per person.

Txakoli Fest ReCap – July 25, 2012
This past Sunday we celebrated a little bit of Nevada pioneering-heritage with a little Txakoli Fest. Delicious wine and cidre were consumed (almost exclusively provided by Cepage Selections and DeMaison Selections – thanks, guys!) and scrumptious pintxos were provided by our own Basque alumnus, Cassandra Torrealday. We're still enjoying the wines so get on in here and catch up!
