The schedule is a little light this week, but now that it's Friday I can reveal the truth: Your Wino has been Wandering around Las Vegas all week celebrating spring break, St. Patty's and the holiest of holidays around the Wino household, the first round of the NCAA hoops tournament. Since I'm actually writing this a week in advance, let's just pretend I won a lot of money.
This year's event features a tasting over 150 wines, spirits tasting, Budweiser beer, heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cocktail bar and an extensive silent auction.
There will also be an optional VIP Dinner and Tasting hosted by Stags' Leap Winery. A limited number of spaces are available for the Five-Course Wine Dinner in the Patron Platinum Club, featuring hand-crafted Stags' Leap wines. The dinner starts at 7:30 p.m. Price: $200 per person, all inclusive.
Tickets are available online here, or call 770-2331 for reservations.
Horizon Wine and Spirits invites you to an American Whiskey Tasting featuring whiskies from Kentucky to Wisconsin with a paired Villager Stokkebye Cigar.
The event will be 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 25, at Stogies Ales & Fine Cigars in Cool Springs, 1800 Carothers Parkway. For further details, call 377-7727.
Finally, on March 23, Midtown Wine and Spirits is teaming with Watermark in the Gulch to present a wine tasting featuring Brian Loring of Loring Wine Co. Loring makes some outstanding Pinot Noirs, so you might want to check it out. Call Midtown at 327-3874 for the rest of the details.
The Wino needs a new pair of shoes, bay-bee!
