Wine Not? A Toast To The Holidays And The Gift Of Grape

The holidays are stressful as is. Whose house do you travel to?  What’s the code word when it’s time to go home? And who is going to pick up Grandma? Add gift-giving and it’s enough to make your winter whimsy turn into a blizzard of emotions.

Cork is here to help. Kick up your feet and unwind while we help you cut down on the list of what-ifs. So grab a bottle or two—one to give and one for you—and check out these helpful tips on what to gift to those you hold near and dear.

For The Space Saver

The holidays are full of excitement and things—decorations, extra people milling about the house, and gifts. Once the packages have been opened and wrapping paper and bags are strewn about the living room floor, the last thing your host wants to worry about is a breakable crashing to the floor. Or where to stick yet another fleece blanket.

That’s where gift cards come in. Stop by Cork Bar & Restaurant, or any of our other fine establishments to give the gift of a night out, a delicious meal and a bit of bubbly. And trust us, after the holidays, the last thing on your mind is making another meal.

An Experience – Wine Tastings for all Seasons

You know you’ll be given—and maybe even give—a snowman knick-knack this holiday season. Cut down on the clutter and give the gift of an experience this holiday season. Fitting for the in-laws, a coach and even your boss, give the gift of a wine tasting or an educational experience.

Cork hosts the Wine School Series featuring lessons on how to pair wine with meals and wine tastings for all seasons. Advanced registration is required so be sure to check out the full calendar for upcoming events.

River Street Jazz Café has events planned for the new year already, too. Check out their calendar for all things music. You can even kick off the new year with Pink Floyd tribute band Space Force.

Sip Sip Hooray

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a bit of bubbly. Cork has a wide selection of wines and beer on tap to try. Take a break from the holiday hubbub and pull up a seat at Cork Bar & Restaurant.
