Happy Monday: The Tasting Room (Chevy Chase, MD/DC Border)

[ 2 ] July 19, 2010 |

Happy Monday!! Ridiculous how much time has passed since my last Happy Monday (*happy hour spot of the week) post has passed.  It has been hectic as you can see from the looks of things (*;-)  New site, new look, new aspirations.  That is what the second half of 2010 stands for in the world of JKGF.  Lucky for me, I live in the perfect city to achieve these goals.  The District scene is constantly changing, evolving into the city to be and be seen, in the second decade of the millenium.  The city does, however, manage to maintain some of the key characteristics that make it the nations capitol.  This week’s happy hour highlight comes from a part of the city not often appreciated for more than just a shopping destination.  Now it has more than just a little fashion pizazz but it will tickle your fancy with some of the areas top wine:  The Tasting Room.

Why is it our new favorite?  Hmm…let me count the ways:  1. The wine card puts a cap on that overspending… (*You have the option of putting money on a card to obtain wine through the dispensers or you can pay by the glass) 2. The wine dispensers makes sipping some of your best wines easier than gushing out the flat Sprite @ your local Burger King…and 3. The prices overshadow the amount you just spent in Bloomingdale’s.  You ask why? I ask why not?!   A wine shop that sells wine by the bottle but also offers up an outside and inside decor sure to please your senses especially after tasting one of the premiere Boxwood Winery selections.  I thought about telling you the specials of The Tasting Room, but honestly everyday/all day is the special with prices set as low as $4.  Cheers!
