This is a public service announcement: You might not know that this Wednesday, Feb. 18 is "Drink Wine Day," but we're here to remedy that. In what might be our new favorite holiday (with National Pizza Pie Day a very close second), several local wine bars are jumping at the chance to pop some bottles with you this "Drink Wine Day." Man, that has a nice ring to it.
At the two locations of D.O.C. Wine Bar (one in Lincoln Park and one in Lombard), the "Drink Wine Day" festivities will be in full swing. At the D.O.C. on Clark Street, you'll get to enjoy half-priced bottles of wine (less than $99) from 5PM-2AM. At the Lombard locale, select bottles of wine will be half price in the lounge from 11:30-1AM, and the entire retail bottle list will also be half priced (to keep the celebration going at home). There will also be a "Juice of Passion" wine tasting at the Lombard D.O.C. that evening from 7-9PM, featuring eight "sexy" wines like Terra "Valentine" Cabernet Sauvignon and Chateau Ste. Michelle "Eroica" Riesling. The tasting is $35 per person, which also includes appetizers.
Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar in Lakeview is toasting "Drink Wine Day" with a complimentary glass of wine with the purchase of a glass, and a complimentary bottle of wine with the purchase of a bottle from 4:30-10PM.
Now that you know where you're going on Wednesday, it's time to get going -- there are only two shopping days left until "Drink Wine Day!"
