Tonight’s dinner at @arakesprogressdc with Erica Crawford of New Zealand’s @loveblockwine was just divine! I loved the surprisingly fruity Sauvignon Blanc, and all of the ((sustainable)) pours paired perfectly with the meal - from trout smoked on a log to a bright beet salad.
ICYMI, our good friends from @corona came by with some free beers and swag for the bar last night.
They'll be back on future #MondayNightFootball games so make sure you stay tuned and come by! #WharfDC
Wanna have your own house party with good food, lots of cocktails, play ping pong and arcade all night, then go upstairs to hang out and listen to great music? Of course you do. DM us and let's make it happen.
When Drake comes to D.C., he drinks Don Q 🥃
It was pretty exciting to read in @eater_dc that CIRCA Chinatown’s Beverage Director created this beauty last week for Drake, AKA @champagnepapi, aptly named “The Drake | Free Smoke,” made with Don Q Gran Añejo rum 📸: @eater_dc
Introducing our new sales associate, Sarah! After our weekly staff tasting group, Sarah wanted to show off some of the delicious Riojas we were studying! La Rioja Alta Rioja Reserva Especial Viña Ardanza is rustic and fruity with flavors of coconut, dark cherries, and tart cranberries! Try the Gran Reserva, which has been aged longer in oak, for an added dried fruit and herbs profile!
We are kicking off “Braai Day” celebrations with a wine tasting this week @clevelandparkwines (if you have no idea what I’m talking about check out yesterday's post).

@lemairerichmond’s #toastthetrees event was ideal. Both the @angelsenvydc/@angelsenvy and the @lemairerichmond teams are so easy-going and hospitable. @taraschleinkofer, could you be any cuter? Same @chaunce.therapper. Can we talk about this perfect little bite? Chicken, waffles and @angelsenvy rye. Next up is an Oyster Shuck with @bigislandaquaponics and @williamsburgwinery on October 11th! Might as well mark it on the calendar now.

Have you ever heard of a braai? A braai is a South African cooking technique, it’s basically cooking food (usually meat) over fire. But it’s more than that. It’s spending time with loved ones, sharing good food and drink, and forgetting life's woe’s. A braai means so much to South Africans that they refer to their National Heritage Day as “Braai Day.’ Why? “It's a fantastic thing, a very simple idea. Irrespective of your politics, of your culture, of your race, of your whatever, 'we do this thing together'” - Desmond Tutu. In fact “braai” is the only word found in all 11 of South Africa’s official languages. We may not be South African, but, with encouragement from our South African friends, decided to bring “Braai Day” to the DMV. We’ve got a few events coming up soon, so be sure to give us a follow for more details.
