Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with today’s Groupon to the Taste of Triumph beer-and-wine-tasting event on Thursday, October 20 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Ted’s Garage. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get two tickets (an $80 value).
- For $80, you get four tickets (a $160 value).
At the Taste of Triumph beer-and-wine tasting, guests sample fine wines and locally brewed beers while supporting [Triumph Services](http://triumphservices.org/) in its [mission](http://triumphservices.org/about/mission-and-history/) to help adults with developmental disabilities live independently. Attendees nosh on hors d'oeuvres by Kathy G and converse over vinos from International Wines and beer from local brewer Good People. Musical duo Jimmy & Laine gratify eardrums with a live performance, and a silent auction grants mimes the opportunity to finally own a Picasso. The fundraiser takes place at Ted's Garage, a combination event center and auto-service shop, which dazzles patrons with the aesthetics of a 1920s warehouse and the convenience of a modern convention facility. Guests can admire the venue's exposed brick walls as they try to avoid spilling merlot on a vintage Ford Thunderbird.
