A Universe of Sparkling Wine. Gettin’ Ready, Tasting Friday ($15)

Friday, August 18th, 2017 4 pm – 7:30 pm @ Mt Tabor Fine Wines

We asked ourselves, “What do you drink while enjoying a solar eclipse at 10 in the morning?” I mean, neither of us is an expert in things astronomy, not to mention ever having seen one of these thingy’s everyone is soooo excited about. We put on our “Elon Musk Tesla Thinking Beenie’s” and asked, “what would Elon do or drink.” And bam, like shot out of a re-usable Falcon 9 rocket, it came.

I remembered seeing Elon, with his new (and former) girlfriend, Amber Heard, in a photo drinking… you guessed it, Champagne (I’m sure Amber likes the 85 Krug Les Mesnil” currently). So we figured that if it’s good enough for the inventor (Elon, not Amber) of X.com, Pay Pal, Space X, Tesla, Hyperloop, Neuralink, The Boring Company and I’m sure I forgot a few others, it’s good enough for us followers (speaking for myself).

So, come practice with us for the big morning. We’ll be testing all kinds of explosive liquids of the imbibing sort! Just tryin’ to make it perfect for you, our special customers.
