Once upon a time, Feast was a tiny creature, tender and fragile. It’s grown substantially, and if my nephews are any indication of what happens when that tiny child nears sixteen years of age, we’re right on track. That is, we can wear big boy pants now. One result of being a bigger restaurant and wine shop now is that we’re in a position to buy up wines by the lot that we once had to leave to the bigger kids, and when we’re lucky on top of being big, we now get offers to buy up things we couldn’t get before, at prices we couldn’t get before. This week, Kevin opens up four such bargains, and we pass the savings along to you. The tasting is slightly pricier than usual- $15 plus tax and tip rather than the customary $10- but we think you’ll find it’s worth it when you see you have the opportunity to taste wines that sell for upwards of $50 or even $85 a bottle. You’ll want to make a reservation, and you’ll want to do it by phone, as web and email reservations won’t hold you a place. But the tasting is definitely not one to pass up. We hope you’ll join us this Saturday, April 29 at 2:00.
