Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today's Groupon: for $25, you get admission to Lee’s Wine Experience, a charity wine tasting hosted by Lee’s Discount Liquors (a $50 value). The event runs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 5.
Now in its ninth year, Lee’s Wine Experience tantalizes philanthropic tongues with more than 1,000 wines from around the world, with proceeds benefiting the nonprofit Lee’s Helping Hand. Visitors can spend five hours milling around the Barron Room of the Las Vegas Hilton, learning about regional wine flavors, fermentation processes, and techniques for safely chewing open a wine bottle while sipping vintages from France, Argentina, Spain, Chile, and the U.S. A spirit-tasting area immerses liquor lovers in samplings of premium vodka, tequila, rum, whiskey, and liqueurs as well as a selection of beers.
For every Groupon purchased, $20 will fund the efforts of Lee’s Helping Hand, an umbrella group that benefits five charities—Opportunity Village, Spread the Word Nevada, New Vista Community, and Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada—allowing guests to offer a hand up while maintaining a tight grip on their chosen beverage.
Lee's Discount Liquor
For more than 30 years, Lee's Discount Liquor has stocked its shelves with myriad spirits, beers, and wine, earning a readers' pick as the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Best Liquor or Wine Store of 2012. Prospective imbibers get lost in a fluorescent catwalk of domestic and international tequilas, rums, cabernets, and microbrews, which deck out beverage collections with enough flavors to match any type of cuisine or postage stamp desired. Lee's Discount Liquor also hosts in-store tastings and an annual spirit-sampling event, which merges its myriad sips with entertainment from live bands.
