I was in the Berbiglia's at 1014 W. 103rd Street trying to pick up a bottle of Boulevard's Two Jokers. They were out of it (boo), but I did see that Zon has arrived for the summer (eh). I also noticed the staff was already setting up for tonight's "Summer Wine, Spirits and Beer Tasting Extravaganza!"
The two-hour event begins at 6 p.m. and will feature more than 75 wines, premium spirits and newly released beers. Best of all, it's free! If you want a fuller experience, you can buy a Riedel glass for $5, more than half-off the normal price. Even if it's not the hand-blown line of Riedel glasses it still beats sipping out of a one-ounce cup.
Call 816-942-0070 for reservations (requested but not required) and make sure to sign up for the our dining newsletter, Pitch Forks, to get updates like this one days, not hours, in advance.
