What You'll Get
The perfect food and wine pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and wine the way nature intended with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of small plates, wine, and fondue at Cork! in Tacoma.
Cork!'s recently relocated vinotheque serves its stalwart pours and small plates alongside a brand-new collection of creamy-chocolate fondues. Wines available by the glass range from a cheery, floral-scented riesling to a rich and spicy shiraz ($5–$9). A trifecta of tastes can be explored with a wine flight, which bestows upon each guest a medley of ambrosias and a pair of complimentary aviation goggles ($10+). Modest beer and soda collections are also available.
Supplement sips with bites from the restaurant's small-plates menu, which boasts a spread of Lilliputian cheese plates, salads, and tapas plates ($6–$12). Flatbreads house savory mélanges such as pesto, roasted peppers, artichokes, and kalamata olives ($8 each). A variety of sweet fondues dish out scorching bowls of dip-worthy honey chocolate, zesty orange chocolate, and port-infused chocolate, with each concoction serving as a savory lava pit for an army of fruit, cheesecake, pound cake, pretzels, and treasonous gingerbread men ($10+).

About Cork! A Wine Bar
Beneath the exposed beams of a vaulted ceiling, rows of dark tables serve as a platform for Cork! A Wine Bar’s spectrum of reds and whites. Sourced primarily from the Northwest, these vinous sips pair with a menu of warm flatbreads, rich cheeses, and pots of fondue that melt and bubble like a herd of Peeps lost in the desert. Patrons can sidle up to the bar for a pour of shiraz or a sudsy beer before kicking back in one of Cork's two lounge areas where espresso-hued leather chairs huddle together around low-lit lamps and small tables.
