Before it was tamed, the wild grape was the scourge of the valleys, mocking the looks of recently sheared sheep and running away with farmers' sons. Drink to the fruits of cultivation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-month membership to the Wine Club at Swirl Wine Shop & Bar in Afton and $50 gift certificate from R.F. Moeller Jeweler ($86 total value). Swirl Wine Shop & Bar's Wine Club brings together oenophiles across the Twin Cities for free tastings, VIP winery tours, and a luxurious annual cruise. Each month, members zip over to the club's home base in Afton to pick up two free bottles of fine fermented grapes selected by Swirl's sauvignon-sipping connoisseurs (normally $45). There, members can pause to nibble tapas and desserts from the simple menu at the attached wine bar, or use the 10% member discount to stock up on cabernet or shiraz at the shop. Home delivery costs $14, but comes free with an additional order of $50 or more from Swirl's online shop.
Later, increase your fingers' flashiness during a trip to R.F. Moeller Jeweler, where the wide selection of gems offers a jewel-box's worth of glittery ways to distract other cocktail party attendees from your third eye.
