Friday is National Drink Wine Day
[caption id=“” align=“aligncenter” width=“500” caption=“National Drink Wine day”][/caption] It seems like there’s an official day for absolutely everything, but tomorrow is probably the day commandeering an act that should be performed every day: Drinking wine. If you feel like going out, there’s a couple places around town that will make it easy to celebrate: Corkbar (Downtown)
This downtown, California-centricÂ wine bar will be offering a flight of 3 wines for only $10. If you unlock the Foursquare Swarm Badge by checking in with 49 other wine-drinking, social media hangers-on, you’ll also unlock the incentive toÂ receive extended happy hour specialsâ€”that is, $2 off drafts, $8 select wine, and half-priced select appetizersâ€” for the remainder of the night. (To note: Normally, happy hour runs from 5 - 7 PM.) Delicioso!
Napa Valley Grille (Westwood)
Feeling confident about your wine palate? Wine Director Christina Sherwood will be leading a “Guess the Grape” game for guests, who will get to guess the varietal of a wine not currently on Napa Valley Grille’s wine list. Should you guess correctly, you’ll win a complimentary glass of wine. Fun!
Obika Mozzarella Bar (Century City)
Stop by for “Aperitivo Hour” between 4:30 - 7 PM for some tasty, mozzarella-focused bites and half-off wine. Again: Delicioso!
Feel like celebrating with a loved one or with friends (ok - maybe yourself) at home? Visit one of my favorite shops, including Domaine LA, Wally’s Wine, Silverlake Wine or K&LÂ for some great vinoÂ selections. Their staff are always knowledgable and can recommend a great bottle or two across all different price ranges for your enjoyment. Another good ideaÂ is to stop by the excellentÂ Bar CovellÂ wine bar in Los FelizÂ for a glass or three. It’s got just my kind of ambiance - casual, cool and not uppity. Feeling like accompanying your wine with some great cheese? Head on over to Cube on La Brea.Â Be sure to make a reservation if you plan on visiting during the evening because even the bar seating is reserved - and trust me, it will be packed. If you’re on the Westside, stop by Pourtal for their normal happy hour (4 - 7 PM: $5 wine and apps) and pours from their enomatic machines. Whatever the case and however you choose to celebrate, Happy National Drink Wine Day!
