Pic(k) of the Week: Pretty in Black

Pretty in black

The occasion was a fundraiser for the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The 'hook' was Pretty in Pink: a Rockin' 80s Rosé Party, a tasting of rosé wines.

The host was Screwtop WineBar, a combo wine café and shop, in Arlington, Virginia.

Above, three in black were enjoying their 'pink' rosés. And, yes, there was plenty of 'bad' '80s' music as soundtrack.

  • A rosé, though pink, is a dry wine. More from Dave McIntyre, the wine critic for the Washington Post: here.
  • There's no good reason that a 'wine bar' cannot also be a supporter of 'good' beer. Note the tap handle to the right.
  • Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virgina— I was pouring rosés at the tasting. More photos: here.
  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of personal photos, often posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as subject. Commercial use requires explicit permission, as per Creative Commons.
