We’re a bit long in the tooth for “Thirsty Thursday,” but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good the-week-is-almost-over happy hour. Our go-to these days is at a.kitchen, where sommelier Mariel Wega and her #ThuWineCru feature special pours at special prices from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Led by guest wine lovers, from fellow somms and wine producers to cheese experts and pairing pros, the #ThuWineCru events have included everything from Barossa Shiraz to French rose, with tons more great guests planned for the coming weeks.
Tonight’s guest is Jason Malumed of Chalkboard Wine + Spirits, a top local importer. He’s bringing three wines (one white, one red and one rose) from Portland’s Division Wines, a collective winery where 12 different winemakers collaborate to create memorable vintages.
Is it Thursday yet? Oh, good. Because we’re definitely feeling thirsty…
