I know this is late, but I just got this myself. Dorian I can't go, but for those of you in Western Queens, tomorrow night Rioja on Broadway in Astoria is going to have a Rioja wine stating that will include tapas. Call the restaurant for your reservation, but this should be an interesting introduction to Rioja wine for the neighbors!
If anyone goes, tell us how it was so we know in the future!
Here are the details in the email that I got:
