SCENE: Social B-day Party

Posted by Erica Jackson on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 1:39 PM

Last night Social Wine Bar celebrated two years in business with a wine tasting extravaganza. Guests were given a glass and encouraged to go wild with the intense selection — over 50 wines were available. Social's various distributors had tables set up around the edges of the room, and most gave very informative yet accessible descriptions of what we were tasting — their excitement about wine was contagious. Options came from everywhere from California to the Basque region of Spain, with pretty pink bubblies, fruity whites, and deep, dark reds. It's safe to say I tried more wine in those three hours than I ever have in my life. Social's servers weaved their way through the tight crowd to pass around delectable hors d'oeuvres like barbecued duck and tuna. And though the place was packed, it was a fun crowd and not at all overwhelming. Artists, media, doctors, and some very hot MILFs (their word) hobnobbed, and of course owner/sommelier Brad Ball was there looking sharp in a grey suit. Happy birthday, Social. Thanks for giving us yet another reason to love you. —EJ
