Wines, like a comfortable T-shirt or a hard candy left to ripen under the couch, only get better with age. Taste the passing of time with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one ticket to the New York Gourmet Society’s Wines of Europe tasting event and a souvenir wine glass (up to an $80 value for nonmembers). The event takes place on Wednesday, October 26 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Bohemian National Hall.
The subtle aromas and complex flavors of more than 60 wines coalesce with the elegant surroundings of the Bohemian National Hall for the New York Gourmet Society's unforgettable tasting event. A network of grape-savvy gastronomes selects the liveliest varieties hailing from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Germany, uniting inexpensive table wines with moderately priced vintages for a smorgasbord of sniffable delights. Meanwhile, Italian bread and cheese stand by to balance palates and satisfy peckish pangs. Just as the ability to cry distinguishes robots from waterproof robots, a commitment to making fine wines affordable and available distinguishes the New York Gourmet Society from its stuffier counterparts. Guests don business-casual attire to spend the evening learning about champagnes or socializing over chardonnays with an approachable crowd of like-minded enthusiasts. Guests also receive a New York Gourmet Society wine glass with admission, freeing them from the need to drink wine from the stolen Halloween-candy buckets of their enemies.
