Wine Night at Alphabet City (City Of Asylum) - With Wine Special
Our Assistant Organizer, Phil, and myself will be co-hosting this event. Phil suggested this tres cool venue since a few years ago the City Of Asylum bought this building and transformed it into a thriving community for writers, readers, and neighbors. They provide sanctuary to endangered writers, and offer a broad range of literary programs in a community setting to encourage cross-cultural exchange. When you enter at street level you will find a restaurant - Brugge On North, to your left; a center area that is sometimes seating for jazz concerts and sometimes a lounge area; and to the right a bookstore (remember them?). The photo below shows the area where we will be gathering. We will be in the center area and there will be a wine special (to be announced). If you have never been here and are curious, The Alphabet City web page can be found here: A fun time is guaranteed for all! We look forward to seeing you there🍷 Here's the special: Amarone della Valpolicella, 2014, at $4.00 per glass while it lasts. This is available in our beloved State liquor stores now. So if you like it you can pick up a bottle anytime. Did you notice the year? What makes it special is "appassimento" or "rasinate" (to dry and shrivel) in Italian. - the grapes are dried to some extent before the wine making process starts. Due to the limited number of bottles available, this special is limited to 20 glasses. Otherwise, the restaurant has a diverse wine menu and you may certainly order from them as well.
