Drinking wine is an activity that sometimes makes people believe they’re funnier, smarter, and two feet taller than they actually are. With today's Groupon, help the perfect beverage find its ideal pairing. For $50, you get a night of wines delicately paired with meats, cheeses, and wine glasses at Vintage Irving, the wine bar in Union Square (a $100 value). This is a classy affair, so leave your Zubaz in the drawer labeled "too mind-blowing for the public eye" and dress to the nines for a night of cultural consumption.

You can use your Groupon at any of the designated event nights. The first opportunity is February 15 and the last chance to use your Groupon is April 26, 2010. There are a multitude of dates in the interim; check them out here. Events have limited spots available and are subject to availability. The sooner you email your desired date, the more likely Jambi will be to grant your wish.

One of the restaurant's sommeliers will lead your figurative tour across wine country. You'll sample both red and white wines with reckless abandon. Wines from around the globe created using techniques and recipes passed from ancient otherworldly visitors to the crew of the Santa Maria and then on to modern wine makers are the focus of the evening. Sip and socialize as you learn the way of the oenophile. Along the way, you'll take pairing pit stops, matching small bites of meat and cheese to the strengths and aromas of each venerable vintage.

These events are a great way to take a night off from wild drinking to do some controlled drinking, a technique many forest rangers use to prevent fire-tower loneliness. Bring your significant other to learn relationship tips from the perfectly paired chardonnay and amuse-bouche. Recruit victims of accidental wine-spills for space-age cleaning-product demonstrations. Introduce your taste buds to wines unfound in gas stations and discount grocery-store racks. Or just come for the cheese.
