Featured Cincinnati Wine Events: Feb 21 – Feb 27

It's a busy week and in particular, it's a busy week for charity!  Oh, and Happy Mardi Gras!  This week is Fat Tuesday, but all weekend you can party in Mainstrasse at the annual Mardi Gras festivities.


Beads in trees. Our post-Mardi Gras New Orleans trip, 02/05

Tomorrow night you can go to the annual offically sanctioned Oscar party by People Working Cooperatively. That also has an "After Party" tacked on to it. If you've been paying attention to the big galas and fundraisers this year, you know that they are trying almost desperately to hook the YP crowd. They're doing it with After Parties, which really means "You can come, but you can't have dinner." For this Oscar gala, the party is $20/pp at the door, the full gala treatment, with dinner, is $120.

On Fat Tuesday, you can eat for charity. We have the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association Mardi Gras. This isn't just N Ky though; for instance, 20 Brix will be there. Kevin and I are attending this one, in part because the money goes to benefit children's homeless shelters (heartstrings are tugged) and in part because it supports local restaurants. It's only $50. Also on Fat Tuesday, if you were lucky enough to reserve a spot ahead of time, Cincinnati E.A.T.S. is dining at Hugo's to benefit the wonderful Cincinnati COOKS! (Freestore/FoodBank program).

Remember, these are just one-time events of which I'm aware. Regular (recurring) events are always listed on the calendar. The calendar is up to date.
Any wine-related events I'm currently aware of are on the
calendar. If I missed something – something local to Cincinnati that is
let me know!

For information on what's going on in Dayton, you can refer to Mark's blog at Uncorked.
