Just in time for another blast of summery weather this week, ~DIRTY HABIT~ is offering a special selection of rosés for half off through April 30th! Sommelier and wine director Jose Aguirre has some selections that will inspire you to think pink, like Robert Sinskey Vin Gris Carneros 2014 for $38 and Champagne L.Aubry Rose NV for $76. He’ll be selling bottles right out of his Timbuk2 Dolores Chiller Bag on the patio, so you can pretend you’re at Dolores Park, but instead of the COLD WATER guy, it’ll be the cold pink bubbles guy instead. Check out some new spring dishes on the menu too. They open at 5pm and reservations are taken for parties of two to eight, plus tables are available for walk-ins.
Did your taxes drive you to drink? Seriously. Fortunately ~SPRUCE~ and ~THE VILLAGE PUB~ in Woodside are kicking off Whisk(e)y Wednesdays this week. Every Wednesday, the restaurants will be opening one very special and/or rare whisk(e)y and offering one-ounce pours at a price that is lower than list price. For Tax Day, they are going big by offering Pappy (why hello!). You can have a pour of the Van Winkle Special Reserve, 12 Year, Lot “B” for $20 (but it’s $30 down at the Pub for a different whiskey).
