OC wine week

This Sunday is the start of OC Wine Week, hoorah! You know what that means, wine, wine, wine! So if you have classified yourself as a bonefied wino, this is your week to raise your favorite wine glass and cheers – it’s going to be a fun week for wine and food!

What is OC Wine Week

OC Wine Week is a time for wine lovers to go out in public and shout from the rooftops “I LOVE WINE & I’M PROUD”. Ok well, I’m taking it a little far, it’s actually an event that participates with local restaurants to pair delicious wines with a special menu. There are no tickets to be purchased, just head out to one of the participating restaurants and enjoy. Be sure to make reservations, there are a lot of OC foodies and winos that are going to head to this event, me being one of them.

From September 25 – October 2, 2011, all the restaurants listed will be participating in OC Wine Week:

If you are really anxious to get the party started early, OC Wine week will be hosting a launch party at the District in Tustin, Saturday, September 24, 2011, from 4:00 – 7:00PM. The cost is $30.00 per person and that gets you a souvenir glass, wristband and a drink card, which entitles you to 8 pours. There will also be two stages with live bands and a variety of snacks and appetizers from local restaurants - kick off OC Wine Week right, I know I will!

There are great restaurants that are close to all of our Orange County apartments, so be there or be square!
