11/10/10 – the man’s guide to wine

By Jesse on November 10, 2010

Have you ever worried that the wine you’re drinking isn’t manly enough? Well, if you’re female, then probably not, I guess. And even if you’re male, this might not be an issue that very often concerns you. However, if you’ve ever had any worries about the manliness of your wine choices — or if you’re just in the mood to taste a delicious and robust lineup of bottles — then come out and join us in Sherman Oaks on Wednesday night. (Ladies welcome, of course.)

Attendees of this meeting will be treated to a nine-bottle lineup specially selected by the Young Winos for this tasting. But if you think it’ll consist solely of massive, full-bodied reds, think again. Manly wines can be white, rosé and red, dry and sweet, smooth and tannic. We’ll have wines from numerous regions and varietals, and we’ll wrap things up with a special manly dessert wine. All this for just ten bucks!

But wait — there’s more. As some of you may know, I work part-time as a videographer for a website called The Man’s Guide To Love, which features daily videos of men giving their single best piece of advice on the subject of love. On Wednesday night, I’ll have my camera with me, and any male attendee who’s willing to be interviewed giving a piece of love advice for the website will get a 50% discount on his entry fee! That’s right — you simply tell me your one best piece of advice on the subject of love, and you’ll drink all night for five bucks. To see some other guys’ responses, check out the website here. (There’s also a women’s version of the site in the works, and we’ll definitely do a round of female Wino interviews at a meeting some time in the future.)

We’ll be meeting at Wino HQ in Sherman Oaks. The RSVP system functions like this: if you want in, you click on this link and tell me so (don’t forget your full name, e-mail address, and a cute message conveying to me your intentions). Once you’ve gotten your confirmation e-mail, all you need to bring is a $10 bill — no bottle.

Looking forward to seeing all of you manly men (and lovely ladies) on Wednesday night!
