SOMETHING TO WINE ABOUT™ Wine + Comedy=Perfect Pairing

Buy Tix:

Something to Wine About™ hosted by Laurie Forster aka The Stand-Up Sommelier™ Radio personality, award-winning sommelier and comedian, Laurie Forster, delivers an edgy, off-beat hilarious show where wine meets punch line. In her Jersey balls to the wall approach to “wine education,” Forster peels back the labels of a few of her favorite wines while she exposes some the deep secrets of the wine industry and why she thinks it’s so damn funny! Relax with a glass (or four!) of wine, because with Forster there are no formalities when it comes to drinking.

This is a “tasting” you will never forget. Something to Wine About™ is an original comedy show & wine tasting that includes on-stage audience participation. During the show, Forster leaves no stone unturned when it comes to talking about wine and why we like it. Maybe you love the full body of a Malbec or the crisp acidity of a Pinot Grigio. Who knows? Who cares? But by the end of this show three things are certain. You are confident about what you like, exhausted from laughing and completely toasted.

Tickets are $20-25 and include wine tasting and unlimited laughs. Seating is limited so advance purchase is advised.
