Meetup NYC: Stonehome, Brooklyn, July 26

hello All right, people. Saddle up them ponies, we’re going on a trip! Thanks to the lobbying from Neil, aka the Brooklynguy, our next meetup will be at Stonehome wine bar in Fort Greene, Brooklyn!

Stonehome has been racking up the accolades recently. Zagat NYC Nightlife says it is the #1 wine bar in NYC. NY Mag praised the outdoor space. All that sounds like we need to see the place for ourselves!

So next Thursday hop on a train to Brooklyn and savor a glass with fellow vino-philes in the latest of our series of meetups. Post a comment or drop me a line if you can make it since the folks at Stonehome would like a heads up on numbers. Hope to see you there!

Meetup: Il Posto Accanto, June 7

hello What a better way to beat the heat than an offline get together? We’re overdue for a meetup!

So push back from your desks and roll on over to Il Posto Accanto next Thursday as we continue our slow-motion pub wine bar crawl of NYC. Kind of short notice this time around but I hope to see many of you there.

ilposto Il Posto Acconto is a charming–dare I say, rustic–wine bar next door to the restaurant Il Baggatto in the East Village. Both are owned by la famiglia of Gabrio Tosti, who in turn owns the excellent boutique wine shop, De Vino. (Since he’ll be there, we’ll have to see if we can get him to to do that thing that he’s doing in the photo on his blog.) Other NYC bloggers, other NYC wine drinkers are all welcome to sample the 30 types of vino available by the glass.

In case it’s your first time to join, the meetup is simply a chance to meet in the real world, off the internet, with wine enthusiasts, in particular, readers of this site and people who’ve taken my wine classes at the NYU. There’s no charge other than what you order at the bar. Consider it a happy hour. Or two.

So get your weekend started with fellow vino-philes! Post a comment or drop me a line at tyler [at] drvino [dot] com if you can make it. I look forward to seeing you there!

We came, we saw, we juiced

juicy2 The Friday meetup at Juicy Wine Co in Chicago was a good time. Former participants in my U of C classes, some site readers that I had never met including a sommelier and a leading econoblogger were there. As was the inimitable team from Upgrade: Travel Better.

Juicy offers a compact but cool environment that even made this New Yorker jealous. Why? The wine bar/wine shop is not legally an option in New York thanks to silly laws prohibit wine consumers from buying a bottle to go or to stay. Juicy charges a $15 corkage, or in their parlance, “chill out” fee over the retail prices, which makes it the cheapest place to sit down and enjoy a bottle of Krug in the city.

I stuck with the wines by the glass enjoying a Kerner from Alto-Adige and a plate of American artisanal cheeses. Charcuterie is also available but no hot food. The wine list is not enormous but the selections are well-chosen with many selections I wanted to try. Oddly, for being a wine destination, the wine list has no vintages.

We were served by the wildly knowledgeable and personable Linda Violago who has served many a fine wine at Charlie Trotter’s, her main gig, for the past few years. She is leaving Chicago in ten days to assume the chief wine duties at Mugaritz in San Sebastian, Spain. If readers of this blog go to that restaurant in the near future (and I am envious, yes), then give her a shout!

Reminder: meetup tomorrow at Juicy Wine Co in Chicago

hello All right, Chicago people. No doubt you have cleared your post-work schedule and are ready to drop by the hip and happening Juicy Wine Co tomorrow from 5:30 – 7:30!

Fun vino-philes, local bloggers of note, and many others that I haven’t met before have let me know they’re coming. Get your weekend started on a good note–hope you can make it!

Meetup Chicago: May 11, Juicy Wine

hello Chicago. Good weather. What could be better? How about a meetup on May 11?

I’ll be in town and look forward to meeting anybody who can make it. We can try wines by the glass (or any bottle from the shop with a $15 corkage fee–or “chill out” fee as they call it) together at the newish and hipster Juicy Wine Co. They have charcuterie and cheeses available.

The meetup is simply a chance to meet in the real world, off the internet, with wine enthusiasts, in particular, readers of this site and people who’ve taken my wine classes at the U of C. There’s no charge other than what you order at the bar. Consider it a happy hour. Or two.
