Phoenix Corkscrews charity wine tasting
I know, you don't need somebody to twist your arm for some Thai food and a wine tasting, but doing indulging for charity is extra motivation to get out and mingle.
Tomorrow night, Aug. 21, the Phoenix Corkscrews -- an enthusiastic group of wine lovers who don't care if you're a geek or a newbie -- are hosting Cheers to a Cure, at Malee's Desert Ridge. All proceeds from the event will go into the fundraising pot for three Corkscrews who're participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, a 60-mile walk to promote breast cancer awareness. The money they raise will benefit Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. And did I mention admission is only 30 bucks? ($25 in advance)
Nibble on spring rolls and satay while sampling Night Owl Chardonnay, Smash Grapes Pinot Grigio, Encore White Medley, 14 Hands Merlot, and Huntington Cabernet. The sipping starts at 6:30 p.m. Visit the Corkscrews' website for tickets and more info.
