Musical Wine Tasting

Saturday, March 17, 2012 - 6:00pm

saki is proud to announce it's first ever Musical Wine Tasting, a unique event which combines the classy pleasures of a fine wine tasting with the aural indulgence of experimental ambient music.

Throughout the evening, vendors handpicked by Provenance Food and Wine will offering samples of several varieties of wine, including two featured bottles, which will be "paired" with the evening's two musical guests, ambient soundscapers Sebetha and Bullet Hell, an experimental electronic trio. As a lighthearted tribute to the fancy practice of wine evaluation, the musical guests will also be analyzed by the event's attendees according to the same standards as the wine. Everything from the artist's visual aesthetic to their deeply complex aroma will be examined and incorporated into the appreciation of their performance.

The Musical Wine Tasting is designed to be user-friendly: The tasting will be in a casual, open house format, with both the Provenance representatives and the musical guests completely open to any and all questions audience members may have throughout the evening.

Think of it as saki's alternative to the traditional St. Patrick's Day events; by incorporating the most basic tenants of the day's events (drinking and music) into a more well-behaved, laid back event, we hope to add a touch of finesse to this notoriously hard partying day.

While the event itself is all ages, you must be 21 or older to sample the wine!
