CLEVELAND PARK  OFFERs SO MANY THINGS! : WHAT A GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD : Join Us For Our BIG-THEME BUBBLY Wine-Tasting here on Wednesday, December 7th, 2016 ( 5:30-8:30PM ) , 15$ a person and that entrance fee goes towards the purchase of any wines you may purchase on the 7th! Join us, we will have a blast, really we will.
THIS IS OUR BIGGEST EVENT of the year here. Recently we have expanded it to include 2 days, the 7th for Part ONE, the 28th for Part TWO. BOTH cost $15 a person, and you can go to : EventBrite and sign up there. This will simplify things for everyone. This is our way of also being sure that those of you that are interested in purchasing a bottle or more actually will be able to sample any of these 30+ bottles that we are offering at both events.
THE TWO EVENTS will include a broad selection from around the world. They will not be repeats : you will be tasting new bubblies on both days, so it is worth coming to both. This way you have bubblies to enjoy between the 7th and the 28th, and then for New Year's Eve as well.
ON BOTH EVENTS ( they are both on a Wednesday ) you will be able to SAVE BIG Three Ways :
     1) BUY ANY BOTTLE of sparkling wine ( except Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon ) that costs $19.99 or more and SAVE 20% OFF the marked sticker price ( even if the bubbly is already On Special ).
