Forget “A to Z”, Jet Wine Bar has everything under the sun for Philly Wine Week, April 1st – 7th.
We’re bringing you sex, Sonoma, scrabble, cinema, a sparkling soirée… fiddleheads and a rainbow.
Whether you want a sit-down tasting, lively discussion with your wine, trivia competition, or a casual flight at the bar, Jet has it all.
Monday 1st, Sex and Wine: Powerful, Sultry, and Smooth
How do *you* talk about wine? Do you think of wine as “male” or “female”? Androgynous? Trans? Sex-based, gendered adjectives like “muscular”, “pretty”, and “buxom” are frequently used to describe wines. But why? How do *you* refer to wine? Is it static? Or fluid?
We’ll taste wines all along the gender spectrum, and talk about their traits.
Join us for this fun and spirited evening of wine and conversation about sex and gender in wine. Announcing our special-guest host, Miss Karen VonSay!
Let’s talk about sex, baby!
Price $50 – BUY TICKETS
These wines will also be available at the bar.
Tuesday 2nd, 4pm-close Rainbow Wine Night
Back by popular demand, you can once again drink away the night in technicolor splendor! For our 3rd annual Rainbow-Wine Night, we’ll again have wine in its multi-hued glory: green, orange, black, pink… A veritable rainbow. Come as you are and wear your own colors!
