Wed. Feb 17:  Vintage Berkeley Treasure Hunt (Berkeley)
2113 Vine Street
Berkeley, CA

7:30pm – 8:00pm – $15

Find your inner Pirate, and join the folks at Solano Cell–aarrrrssss [CORRECTION – event is at vintage berkeley] for A Treasure Hunt.  Test your wine knowledge during a blind tasting, trying to match up the wines you drink w/ in-store write-ups.  Prizes in store.    isn’t so simple. Where thinking cap meets drinking cap. We select wines for you to taste, except this time, their identities won’t be known (aka a blind tasting). Armed with thousands of micro-glimpses of tactile & olfactory clues, your mission is to figure out which of the nifty in store write-ups matches the wine in your mouth. A virtually impossible challenge, in fact, you shouldn’t even try playing our game. If someone were to get one or two right (you’re dreaming guys) we’d probably show our respect with a gift.
