Patrick Baqueriz, Proprietor of "24", http://24.patrickbaqu... (http://24.patrickbaqueriz.com/) has graciously offered his wine bar to our group for our first event. I though we should keep it largely informal and without pretense for starters. Patrick has agreed to opened his entire collection at $7 per glass (cash only) and make recommendations based on your preferences. In addition, he will provide free appetizers (cheese, crackers, etc...)
I thought we could share ideas for activities and themes for future tasting events. Perhaps we can have guest sommeliers and specific wines down the road. I also thought the we could have guest artists and other themes in the future based on your suggestions.
I plan to screen Sideways, staring Paul Giamatti (native of Brooklyn Heights and reputed to prefer spirits to wine), Thomas Hayden Church, Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh, as background.
Come out, bring a friend and enjoy.
