AWESOME ALERT: Half Off Housing Works on Groupon

Last summer, I told you about Housing Works Thrift Stores. If you haven't been there yet, there's really no excuse not to immediately.

Today, Groupon is offering a half-off deal good for $40 at any of the 12 Housing Works locations throughout NYC. What's even better is that the coupon can be used for sale items! Oh, the booty you could score with this! Unfortunately, it's limited to one per person, but your friends would think you the most fabulous fashionista if you surprised them with a gift of this as well.

I'll Have Some Cheese With that Wine (And Bread and Sauce)

Well folks, I'm officially a NY Vintners groupie. I've been to more classes than I can count (thanks to awesome discounts from Groupon), and I think my personal best experience there was recently topped after my mom, who was in town from Los Angeles, and I attended a Pizza and Wine class there last week.

If you don't already know how much I love this little wine-shop-turned-event-space already, it's about time you figured it out for yourself. And figure it out at the next Pizza and Wine class. 

We walked into NY Vintners at about 3:45 on a Friday afternoon (yay for taking off work early!) and were each instantly handed a bubbly glass of prosecco -- a perfect way to kick off the weekend. After all the other people arrived, we were welcomed by the owner himself, Shane Benson, who you can really tell has a lot of passion for teaching the public about the joys of wine and food. For the next two hours, we were schooled in the proper technique of swirling, sniffing and sipping and well, we really didn't need to know anything about chowing down on pizza. Pie by pie were ushered out of the kitchen to our tables and I was enthralled by the many different varieties the creative kitchen staff came up with -- buffalo chicken, pulled pork, artichoke and one of the most awesome white pizzas I've ever had. We sampled the different cheesy concoctions with five different wines from all over the world and at the end of the night had the opportunity to take home some of those bottles at a discounted price. 

I'm definitely looking forward to my next experience at NY Vintners. Hmmmm, will it be Bubblicious or Bad Ass Reds? Stay tuned!

Wine Dreams

I was waiting to post about New York Vintners until I attended another class and then I could go through the whole kit and caboodle of how wonderful the experience was, the wines we tasted and the foods we ate. But no, you need to act now and fast.

One of my all-time favorite ways to spend a weekend afternoon in this city so far is taking a 2-hour wine class at the wine store turned event space with a full kitchen, New York Vintners. Today Groupon is offering a choice of one class for only $25, that's half off!!

You won't be sorry after taking this class. In fact you will be smarter, more apt to figure out a complex restaurant wine list, and, if you're lucky, perhaps slightly more inebriated than when you woke up that morning. It's all for the better, I promise you.

Classes I highly recommend are Wines 101, Sake and Mediterranean Flavors, and Biodynamic and Organic Wines. Check it out now and buy one or two (or three!) before it's too late and you're kicking yourself.
