Because not every man understands wine, but every man understands “let’s party,” there’s this:
Uproot’s The Block, an invite-only supper and wine club designed to introduce you to the frothy world of wine, taking reservations nationwide now.
Started by Uproot, the Silicon-meets-Napa Valley vino purveyors, The Block is a private social club that meets in mystery locations (in our experience, a swank private loft).
The menu: top area chefs moonlighting for you, usually via services like Kitchensurfing.
The wine: fantastic, unlimited Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache provided by Uproot.
You meet people. You drink. You learn. Win win win.
Based on the initial event in New York, expect area tastemakers, culinary gurus and a lot of pretty faces (the ratio of single/married and women/men was perfectly balanced).
Post NY, The Block has events lined up in San Francisco and Los Angeles, with more cities to be announced throughout the year.
When it’s over, they’ll send you a photo book chronicling the night.
Given your wine-fueled evening, it’ll serve as a very pleasant reminder.
