Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets to a wine and cheese social at Joy Bistro Bar (a $50 value). The social begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 5.
Knowledgeable foodmongers at Joy Bistro Bar pair red and white pours with hunks of delectable local cheese at wine and cheese socials held on the first Thursday of every month. The Small Winemakers Collection sponsors this month's January social, matching Luigi Righetti libations from Italy’s Veneto region with cheeses culled from the Leslieville Cheese Market based on their complementary flavours and online dating profiles. Each ticket earns its holder a punch card valid for five 2-ounce wines and five cheese samples dispensed within Joy Bistro Bar’s exposed brick interior. Joy Bistro Bar's multi-faceted expanses shelter a main dining room, a bar, two ground-level patios, a second-floor terrace patio, and a subterranean ironing station that eliminates wrinkles from vain-aged wines.
