The second amazing event is really one for the books! Boston is hosting it's very FIRST Wine Week! We all know about Restaurant Week- in fact we're in the midst of it now!- where restaurants all over town, and even outside the city limits offer fabulous deals on three course meals. No one can deny that this is a great deal, theoretically-however if you're like me I tend to get so excited about saving on the meal, I over indulge on the drinks, and my bill is not quite as cost effective as I might have hoped. However this year- the smart people at Quarterly Review of Wines, The TV Diner and The Second Glass are sponsoring a week where wine will flow like water.
During the week of September 20 through 26, thirteen restaurants around Boston will be offering selected wines at fractional prices. How fractional? $9 a glass, or $32 for a bottle... think about that- you could treat yourself to a bottle of wine normally sold at your favorite restaurant for $90, for just $32. A sampling of the wines that might be offered?
