TGIT - Thank Grapes, It's Tuesday

"It's a boutique winery that looks more like one of those out-of-the-way wine shops you wander into on back streets in Europe. Its deeply paneled front room has the wines and upscale beers. (They'll order anything from anywhere, if they don't have what you want.) The tasting room right behind has large tables, white tablecloths and a ton of local art (for sale)."

This, from our pal Jim Knippenberg of the Cincinnati Enquirer, who reports that City Cellars Fine Wines, a little boutique wine store located at 908 Race Street, is joining forces with Washington Platform for Wednesday night wine dinners, with a soup of live jazz, from 5:30- 8 pm, on the side. City Cellars hosts "TGIT - Thank Grapes, It's Tuesday", a wine tasting every Tuesday night from 5:30-7 pm, with a sampling of four different wines, usually two reds and two whites, themed by point of origin, for $6. This week's wines selections are Italian and chosen with Thanksgiving in mind. And now, on Wednesday evenings, City Cellars makes the short hop over to Court and Elm Streets and the home of Washington Platform, to present the featured wines from Tuesday's tasting and helping diners pair them up with their dinner selections. Wednesday night wines are half-price by the bottle or $3.50 by the glass. With such rock-bottom prices, all we can say, is hurrah, it's about time. Let's show them some love here, people!
