The Bacchanalian Society, that crazy wine tasting event held each quarter, is being held Thursday night at the gorgeous Phoenix downtown. More than just a party, the event benefits the Red Cross. The Phoenix is just lovely and can hold up to 1000 people, so there should be some breathing room at this event.
Suggested donation is $10 per person in advance or $15 at the door.
Your donation gets you admission to the event, wine tasting, DJ
entertainment, and appetizers. If I'm not mistaken, the afterparty is at Bootsy's.
Kevin and I are part of the host committee, so he'll be there someplace. I suspect he'll be either uncorking wines or bagging them. Search him out and say
Oh, the wine this time is "Australian Red." Try to avoid the Yellow Tail and get creative. Which reminds me – <SOAPBOX> this is a tasting event, people, not an opportunity to get sloshed. There's a reason we put dump buckets on the tables. So pour a taste (1-2 oz pour), make a decision and move on. </SOAPBOX> That said, I also want you to have a great time, so have fun and be safe. Don't forget that Fetch (513.35-FETCH) can always be called for a cab.
There are, of course, rules to the game, which you can find after the jump.
Rules (from the Bacchanalian Society web site):
Bacchanalian Society helps charities to conduct competitive wine
tastings where even the loser gets to take something home. The
competition is based on what we call the "Rule of Three." Huh? Keep reading … and make sure to check out the photos and results from our past events listed below.
