DC Wine Week Is Baaacck!

It's that time of the year again! DC Wine week is baaacck!

The event started off with a huge opening party hosted at Sonoma Wine Bar & Restaurant last Saturday. I was honored when the lovely folks at DC Wine Week extended an invitation to me.

Just like last year's, the opening night event did not disappoint. We mingled and sipped on the 2nd level of the restaurant, enjoying a smorgasbord of meats, cheeses, and desserts. I wasn't there to eat. After the stressful week I had, I wanted to sip. And sip I did! I sampled a few fabulous vinos. My two favorites are:

I was giving major *side eye* to a bunch of folks I saw at the party sipping their red wine in a champagne flute. A short while later, I came across a bottle of '02 Lambrusco Opera which is a delicious light and refreshing red sparkling wine. (Well, that explains it!!) I will be adding this to my personal collection.

Boxwood Trellis 2010 red wine was love at first sip! This vino is a winning combination of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Melbac. Big. Bold. Fruity. And worthy of a Jonez *shimmy shake* Getchoo some of this!

I'm excited about the rest of the week's agenda. Starting with tonight's party at ArtJamz. I love getting my hands dirty with paint. Some of my best inspirational ideas come to me either during a long shower or midway thru my second bottle of wine.

Just sayin'

Tomorrow, October 16th, DC Fashionistas can mingle, sip, and shop at Lost Society on 14th street. Lost Society is the ish! They have a fabulous rooftop. There is eye candy to be enjoyed and refreshing cocktails to be sipped during their daily happy hour. The event is hosted by DC Style Blogger, Maria Jose Ovalle aka @VeryBusyMama on twitter. You must RSVP to attend. Tickets are $40 and there are still a few spots open.

You know what? I'll do you one better and giveaway (1) one ticket to tomorrow's event.
1) Leave a comment under this post. Say anything. Really. (Be nice!)

That's it! I'll select a random comment tomorrow morning at 10am EST. First winner will have until Noon to respond and confirm before I select a backup winner. Please make sure you are available to attend tomorrow's event. I hate to waste a ticket on a no-show.
