Tuesday afternoon is a great time to get tipsy, especially if it benefits underprivileged children. To that end, David Burke’s Primehouse is hosting a “777 Wine Week Lunch” for Common Threads (whose mission, in case you forgot, is to “educate children on the importance of nutrition, physical well-being and to instill an appreciation our world’s diversity through the food and art of different cultures”).
Simply show up to lunch there this week, like you normally do, and a $7 donation will buy you a tasting of seven different wines from the day’s features region (today is Australia). Even assuming the standard tasting size of 1oz, that’s still a nice big glass of wine. Okay, maybe you won’t get tipsy, but either way, a child will learn something! Not a bad value for seven bucks.
