We're out of town – again – and can't partake in as many of the great events this weekend. It also means that I'm missing the opening of Julie and Julia, which I really want to see.
Saturday is chock full of daylight tastings at reasonable prices. The Party Source is having an open house, which means a lot of fun & free samples of all sorts. But I really want to draw your attention to the tasting at the Dilly Deli and Cafe. Winemaker Rich Parducci (McNab Ridge Winery), whom we met back in March, will be debuting his new Zincinnati Zinfandel, which you can only get here in the Queen City. It's limited edition – we picked up a couple bottles of the previous vintage. Rich is a nice guy and you'll enjoy chatting with him – especially at 50¢ per pour.
There are two wine dinners on Thursday night and a Think Pink tasting on Friday. Additionally, it's Downtown Restaurant week, where you can score some sweet dinner deals. So the week is rich in one-time events. Enjoy! Remember, all the recurring events, those dependable weekly tastings, are displayed on our calendar. The one-time events are after the jump.
