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 $35, you get two tickets to the 1st Annual Winter Wine Festival at Blush Winebar in Providence (a $70 value). The event lasts from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, January 30.
Under the ownership of Federal Hill native Christopher Conti, Blush Winebar satiates palates with pairings of tapas and more than 30 national and international wines. The winter wine festival grants guests an informal opportunity to sample the selection of reds, whites, and sparkling libations while learning more about each wine's ingredients, label, and secret cheese crush. Attendees can match each grapey sip with gourmet hors d'oeuvres concocted by executive chef Jacen Scungio. Blush Winebar's cozy interior is replete with hardwood floors, walls ornamented with artwork, red leather seats, and a hammock woven from grapevines.
Under the ownership of Federal Hill native Christopher Conti, Blush Winebar pours half and full glasses from hundreds of red, white, and sparkling libations. The upscale watering hole offers more than 100 wines by the glass, each with its own distinct flavor notes and secret cheese crush. A champagne bar highlights the bubbly beverage with glasses, full bottles, and three-flute samplers as well as a selection of champagne-based cocktails, such as the Blush Boom Boom, a mixture of Moët champagne, pomegranate liqueur, Grand Marnier, and orange juice. Executive chef Jacen Scungio blends fresh, local ingredients to create the flatbread pizzas, sliders, and handmade pastas that populate the wine bar’s tapas menu and keep hungry imbibers from trying to stomp their wines back into grapes.
