I got this invite today in my inbox. I think it will be an amazing tasting event! Here's what the e-mail said:
"It started with an off-hand comment and quickly turned into an all-out vinous shouting match. Insults about respective mothers drinking . Glasses of rosé dumped on one another. Frankly, it was a very pathetic showing of mutual outrage. But after watching a few weeks ago (only the best movie ever), we had an inspiration for how to resolve our differences. What am I talking about?
The Crushpad vs. City Winery head to head tasting on June 30th at City Winery in NYC.
We're going to each pour 7 wines, tasted blind by the audience, who will have a say in who takes the champion belt. Ali vs. Frazier; Drago vs. Balboa. Pick your all-time favorite bout, but my guess is that it will pale into insignificance compared to this battle.
Please note that there are only 80 tickets available and they are only $55 through Thursday (then they go to $75).
