This Calls for a Drink: An Evening to Discover Wine Pairings for Everyday Situations

Join us at Barbuzzo’s private event space on Wednesday, June 12th for an evening of great drinks, delicious food, and a chance to socialize with the Greater Philadelphia-area IP community. The event will give guests a chance to support two of Philadelphia’s leading female restauranteurs – Chefs Marcie Blaine and Valerie Safran, owners of Barbuzzo – and experience a sampling of food and drink from their array of restaurants, which include not just Barbuzzo, but Lolita, Jamonera, Little Nonna, Bud & Marilyn, among others.

Our guest speaker will be Diane McMartin, author of “This Calls for a Drink! The Best Wines & Beers to Pair with Every Situation.” Any decent wine book can tell you what to drink with a grilled steak. But what is the best wine to pair with a blind date? For watching the Oscars? For a big birthday? Diane will take our group on a journey of how to match wines and beers to the significant – and not so significant – events in life.

Space is limited, so spots will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
