Tomorrow is the day when the new Kentucky tax goes into effect, raising
your taxes in the middle of a recession. That's right everyone. Go buy
your alcohol today! In response to the tax, The Party Source is launching a new program effective April 1: The Party Source New Deal, which will help you combat the tax and save money when buying in bulk.
It starts to get a little more complicated when you start adding in sizes. For instance, a 3-5L bottle or a box counts as 3 bottles towards your case. But if you hate math (like me), don't worry. The Party Source has provided a cheat sheet you can download
that details the whole program. One last fun item on this – any wine or beer spirits orphans in your cart, outside of the case, gets a 5% discount.
Next, our friend Hector Esteve of Paella at Your Place
will be at Chateau Pomije in O'Bryonville this Friday, April 3, for
Casual Friday. The accompanying wine tasting will showcase the medal
winners from the recent Cincinnati International Wine Festival. The
tasting runs 5:30-8:30 pm and costs $15 per person.
Finally, Liquor Direct
is having a nifty event on April 7 (next Tuesday). From 5:30 – 8 pm at
the Fort Thomas location, you can enjoy a special event led by Bruce
Neyers, owner of Neyers Vineyards
near Rutherford (Napa). Bruce is also the National Sales manager for
the excellent Kermit Lynch Wine Selections. Bruce will lead the
tasting and discussion centering around some of his own wines as well
as some selections from the Kermit Lynch French portfolio. You can show
up early for appetizers and a meet and greet. Spaces are filling up
fast, so call 859.291.2550 or email Kevin to make your reservation. Oh, and like so many events at Liquor Direct, this event is free.
