Being "wined and dined" is often a precursor to big requests, such as "Can you finish this jug of wine for me?" or "Would you sign my petition to install a municipal wine fountain?" Compromise just the right amount of judgment with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Wine and Small Plates
Region- or flavor-themed wine flights create trios of 2-ounce tastes ($9.75+). For full-sized sampling, more than 30 wines are available by the glass ($5.50+). Small plates, meanwhile, balance palates with assorted cheeses, olives, and cured meats ($3.50–$11.50). See the wine list and food menu for both locations here.
The bottles that make up Thief Wine's diverse inventory are not stolen, but they may as well be. The shop's name—a reference to the long tube or "barrel thief" used to sample maturing wines waiting to be bottled—reflects the air of mischief shoppers experience in encounters with otherwise inaccessible wines that makes each of the shop's selections feel like the product of a thrilling cellar heist. The fruits of Thief's careful wine curation decorate the walls of Thief Wine's two locations with more than 650 selections, which mix familiar labels with artisanal up-and-comers from around the globe. At each location's wine bar, certified sommeliers pare down the hulking inventory to about 30 essential bottles, which slosh into thematic tasting flights or full glasses to flank small plates of cheese and charcuterie.
