This weekend, my sister and cousin came to visit me in NYC, and it was seriously the most fun I’ve had in recent memory. Yesterday, we went to the Weekend Wine Class at Chelsea Wine Vault in Chelsea Market. I know basically nothing about wine and I have a very undiscerning palate, so it was definitely a good experience. Plus, they give you four big ol’ glasses of wine to taste and analyze.
This is the aroma wheel. I don’t know how official it is, or if this is just used by the store.
A lot of, if not most of, these flavors sound disgusting to me. “Yes, I would like a glass of your rotten cabbage flavored wine, please.” Thankfully, the kinds they gave us to taste were pretty good.

Dear FIM readers – I am letting you meet Gleason’s. It’s like taking you home to mom and dad. Gleason’s is our neighborhood haunt. They have happy hour until 7:00 (it used to be 8:00 before they came under new management), with deals on drinks and appetizers. HH is Monday-Friday (used to be on Saturday, too), but it’s all day and all night on Mondays. I guess we missed it by a day tonight!
Here are the old faithful appetizers. Sometimes we get others (wings or truffle fries), but these never disappoint:
