What: How To Start A Wine Collection

Where: Dig

When: Thurs., November 17, 5:30-7:30 pm.

Cost: Free

The rundown: If you purchase wines based solely on what's $2-- or worse, on which label features the cutest animal -- Dog Patch's Dig wine shop has just the event for you. Special guest Dennis Foley, a wine professional with 40-years experience, will teach you how to start and grow a wine collection. Many view this as an overwhelming topic, but Dig promises, "few things can bring the satisfaction of building even a modest wine cellar, purchasing bottles on release, and tasting them as they mature over time."

This class is geared at teaching everyone the ins and outs of wine collecting. From the fancier Bordeaux, Burgundy, Brunello, and Barolo to selections for the other 99%, this talk will feature boozy deliciousness for the masses. Plus, you can't beat free pours coupled with the knowledge that you're becoming more cultured than your peers. Cheers!

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
