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 $29, you get one ticket to a New York Gourmet Society wine-tasting event at the Bohemian National Hall (up to a $90 value for nonmembers). Ticket holders also get a souvenir wineglass to take home. Choose from the following dates and times:
- “Best Wines for Winter” on Tuesday, February 21, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
- “Wines of the World” on Thursday, March 1, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
- “French Champagne and Sparkling Wines From Around the World” on Tuesday, March 20, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.<p>
The subtle aromas and complex flavors of more than 60 wines coalesce with Bohemian National Hall’s renaissance-revival trappings during each New York Gourmet Society wine-tasting event. A network of grape-savvy gastronomes selects the liveliest varieties hailing from origins such as Argentina, Australia, France, and Pluto, uniting inexpensive table wines with moderately priced vintages for a smorgasbord of sniffable delights. Meanwhile, a complimentary smattering of breads and cheeses stands by to balance palates and satisfy peckish pangs between every sip of red, white, rosé, or sparkling wine.
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 socializing over chardonnays or cabernets with an approachable crowd of like-minded enthusiasts. Tasters also receive a 10% discount on any purchased bottles, as well as a New York Gourmet Society wineglass to take home, freeing them from the need to drink wine from the stolen Halloween-candy buckets of their enemies.
