Wine.Woot Takes Brooklyn: Official NYC Tasting Party, June 5

by Jason Toon

Some of you Wine.Wooters have been getting together for a while now on your own, to sip wine and swap notes and soak in your collective cool. Officially, we think that’s awesome. Secretly, we’re consumed by jealousy. It’s all we can think about. And cry about.

So we just had to throw our own get-together in the heart of Brooklyn wine country. You’re all invited to join us from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, June 5, at Like the Spice Gallery, 224 Roebling Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211. Currently showing work by artist (and Shirt.Woot fan) Reuben Negrón, Like the Spice is convenient to the L, G, and JMZ subway lines. And the Atlantic Ocean, if you’re planning to come by submarine.

Dave “Winedavid39” Studdert and a couple of the key behind-the-scenes Wine.Woot folks (the ones who get all the work done) will be there with hors d’oeuvres, music, and more than a mere sampling of the never-before-tasted Woot Cellars summer release. Before leaving, participants will be subjected to a minor surgical procedure to excise all memories of the evening, to prevent them from revealing details of the upcoming Woot Cellars wine. It’s relatively painless. Bring your health insurance card.

Then, if you’re one of those city-that-never-sleeps types, come along to the official unofficial afterparty to be named later. If you’re trying to keep up with Winedavid39, remember he’ll still be on California time, so he’ll have an unfair advantage.

All dumb jokes aside, we’re psyched about meeting you guys, and finally bringing the rogue Wine.Woot party scene into our sphere of influence. No need to RSVP, but feel free to post questions, regrets, and Transformers 2 spoilers below.
