We Bitches love great champagne. But, we won’t discriminate against a good glass of white or red, either.
As much as I might pretend to know a lot about wine, frankly, I don’t. I enjoy drinking it. I know what I like, and what I don’t like, but I have no explanation for my preferences … it’s a lot like my taste in men.
I prefer someone knowledgeable to recommend a good wine, tell me why I should like it, pour it for me, and provide delicious food along with it. What can I say? I like to be well taken care of.
Cue Wine Riot: a cross-country wine tour hitting our nation’s Capitol next weekend, October 21 and 22. It was started by a group of 20-somethings who love wine, but aren’t prepared to be snobby about it.
There are 250 wines being poured, with food pairings. Here’s the best part: there’s a mobile app that enables you to track what you like and what you don’t as you cruise through the event. Plus, Wine Riot will have roving “wine intelligence units” and crash-course wine seminars throughout the event to educate you. I am ready to learn about ze vino!
Then, when you get nice and toasted, there’s a DJ and photo booth will all sorts of fun props to play with and memories to make.
Sounds like a Bitchin’ party. Not convinced? Find more information on their website.
To celebrate our impending wine intelligence, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets! That’s four total tickets, divided between two lucky Bitches and their plus-ones.
The winner can choose to attend between 1) Friday Oct. 21, 7-10 p.m., 2) Saturday, October 22, 1-5 p.m., or 3) Saturday, October 22, 7-11 p.m. The event is being held at Daughters of the Revolution Constitution Hall, 1776 D Street N.W., Washington, DC.
