Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. Today’s side deal prolongs the non-truths with $25 worth of wine and savories for $12 at Indulge Wine Bar, located in the Highlands Ranch Town Center. Indulge was ranked one of Denver's Best Wine Bars in 2009 according to Denver A-List voters.
Indulge offers more than 30 wines by the glass and more than 100 bottles from all over the world. Both white and red pours pair perfectly with Indulge's thoughtful menu of small plates. Try the roasted-veggie quesadillas ($8) stuffed with grilled asparagus, oven-roasted tomato, red onion, and cheddar-jack cheese, or the kalamata-olive- and feta-topped roasted-red-pepper hummus served with warm flatbread ($9). Indulge also offers flat-bread pizzas, larger plates, and a modest selection of soups and salads. Peruse the indulgent cheese and dessert menu, which includes an international selection of cheeses you can arrange into a flight of four 1-ounce portions ($18), or just choose one 2-ounce portion for $9 (maybe Humboldt Fog or Brillat Savarin). Indulge is open Monday–Saturday for lunch (11 a.m.–4 p.m.) and seven days a week for dinner, starting at 4 p.m. Live jazz is featured every Sunday 6–9 p.m.
Drinking wine is like slipping a pair of rose-tinted glasses on your mind. The peaceful pour works quickly to enhance pleasantries (your dining companion, your meal, your hand-cobbled, variegated-corn-ear loafers) while sentencing all your worries to a time-out in the corner. Get this Groupon and share the fermented-grape-juice magic with someone you love or someone you want to love you.

Indulge Wine School
Indulge Wine School's staff of educators, such as Kris in Jacksonville, a wine expert and blogger, expands wine knowledge with ease, having turned the revelry-steeped tassels of nearly 3,000 graduates. Classes of 12–20 take place in venues throughout the United States, as students swirl and sip their study materials and nibble complimentary appetizers. Every class ends with a Q&A session, during which potation professors shine a light on oenophilic mysteries including tannin content and regional differences. Afterward, students continue to ferment knowledge at home with a complimentary electronic copy of Indulge's book A Fun and Informative Introduction to the Wonderful World of Wine, a food-and-wine-pairing chart, and a top-10 list of wine-buying tips.
