All Blind, All Fun, All Amazing and Now In-Person & with Fried Chicken! Can you tell which is which?

About this event:

Join us for a tasting of 21 different Champagnes (approx. $2,200 worth) and a fried chicken sandwich at Eat Drink Americano.

Eat.Drink.Americano has tasted fried chicken sandwiches from all over town and is willing to put their sandwich up against the best!

We pour three wines at a time, all blind (WARNING - Each paying guest will get poured the equivalent of an entire BOTTLE of Champagne)! 

The class lasts about 2 Hours as we quickly taste, rate, and review the three wines and pick our favorites. Taste up to 21 wines when sold out.

*Please notify us if you have allergies or dietary restrictions with advance notice.

Elevate your personal Champagne appreciation!

History, anecdotes, and laughs all served in generous portions.
