Juice at the Javits
The Javits Center has another exciting show this weekend: The New York Wine Expo. Having just been there last weekend, I’m not sure I’ll do this, but it’s worth considering. For $85 tonight and $95 tomorrow, you can taste wines poured by about 170 producers. You can also attend (for another $35) seminars. Keynote speaker is Mark Oldman, author of Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine…not sure how wine can be outsmarted, exactly. He also writes a column for Everyday with Rachel Ray. There are also talks on Cotes du Rhone, featuring a French wine expert I met at Windows on the World Wine School, Robin Kelly, and others classes on super Tuscans and New York Rieslings. So, if you’ve got a bit of cash and some free time tonight (7-10) or tomorrow (2-6), head over to the West side and have a glass for me.
