A Zoo of a Wine Weekend

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Wine Whore Review:

This weekend was filled with great wine, food, friends, and good times!



The fun began with a bang! Compliments of WineHarvest, Friday night was filled with my all-time favorite thing in the whole world: FREE wine!!! While listening to the sounds of is Spanish Night, the folks over at this new and exciting wine watering hole served bold, delicious, and fun Spanish wines. All were paired perfectly with tapas and great conversation. I had a blast meeting new friends including Jessica and Josh from WineHarvest. Not only were they very friendly and knowledgeable, but they also made myself and everyone else there feel like they were right at home... with lots of great wine of course!

Saturday Morning's Hangover Rating - 6/10



Friday night's fun was promptly followed up with an event unlike any other I have ever attended. Take one Zoo, add beer everywhere the eye can see, and sprinkle in a nice buffet of food and you have WaZoo! In addition to drinking tons of great brew, meeting the brewmaster from Tampa's own Cigar City Brewery was among the highlights of the evening. Despite the fact that the Zoo was packed, everyone was very friendly (partially beer induced) and the beer didn't stop flowing until well past the scheduled end of the event. I will definitely be back next year!

Saturday Night's Buzz Rating - 7/10

After a long night of beer drinking, I safely made it home and retired with a belly full of beer and a head filled with great memories.

How did wine play a role in your life this weekend?

As a tribute to all of the 'wine whores' of the world, I would like to invite you to share your weekend wine story with me.

To share your story, become a member of the WW Crew! Sign up here to share your pictures, videos, blogs, and events with other wine lovers around the world.

This week's featured Weekend Wine story comes from Paula Spurr and her Weekend Wine Redemption. I am a sucker for a story with a happy wine ending!

With all of the great pictures sent in this week, picking just one was a hard decision. I chose to feature Jay Brook's wine Birthday pic because it simply showed wine lovers celebrating with good friends over lots of great wine. It just doesn't get any better!

See you all again next weekend for more wine, friends, and good fun! :)

Cheers!
