Eleventh Annual “East Coast New Year’s Eve” Extravaganza

As the Fortunate Few well know, our annual “East Coast New Year’s Eve Party” has become an Established Tradition. From 7-9pm on New Year’s Eve we provide the wine, you bring something delicious to share, and when the ball drops in Times Square three hours away, we all hoist our glasses and toast the New Year! The Young at Heart move on to the next party, and we old timers can get to bed at a decent hour! We welcome this annual opportunity to thank all of you for your support this past year, and to toast ahead to even more fun in aught-sixteen. Arrrr, lads and lassies, ye best mark yer calendars now ‘n’ start planning yer finger food!

Important Note! Speaking of Finger Food, we will again this year have a Secret Operative sampling the dishes and Assigning Points! Yummiest Dish wins a $25 credit, and Yummiest-Looking Dish wins a $15-dollar credit! Let’s see if Competition really does improve Quality!

As of press time today we are confirming Bread Fridays and accompanying wine tastings on January 8 and 15, 2016…! At present a  few details remain to be worked out about . Also note that the wine shop will NOT be open on Saturdays in January or February.  Stay tuned!


Wine Club Reminder!

dscn1418 (Modified)In 2015 we changed wine club subscriptions to Calendar Annual. That is, all memberships started between January 1 and August 31, 2015 expire on December 31, 2015, while subcriptions after September 1 will continue through 2016. So be sure to re-up next time you’re in the shop to continue enjoying our fantastic membership benefits, like $5 weekly tastings and no-sales-tax purchases!
