You know you need some internal fortification after braving the battle that is the holiday mall shopping season. Even if you did the majority of your purchasing online from the comfort of your couch (curse you for being so smart), you at least deserve some human interaction at one of these holiday wine events.
Amerigo on West End knows you need a break from the hustle and bustle so they invite you to join them every Monday and Wednesday starting at 6 p.m. for a live performance by solo pianist and vocalist Ronnie Brown. Stay for dinner and drinks while enjoying your favorite classic songs and piano jazz. You can also sample their new cocktail and wine list featuring a selection of wines from locally owned Arrington Vineyards and something they call the Pumpkin Pie Martini.
Luckily, their new wine list still includes a selection of pretty darned good bottled wines for only $19 each.
Amerigo - West End
1920 West End Ave.
Meanwhile, Watermark's Holiday Wine Tasting will be Wednesday, Dec.16, in the wine room of their location in the Gulch at 507 12th Ave. S. Space is limited to 25 guests so you'd better call 254-2000 for reservations.
Price is $30 per person including tax and gratuity, and each guest will receive holiday recipe cards to enjoy at home.
