This Is The Biggest Wine Tasting In Chicago, And We've Got Free Tix!

wine riot
If you don't like wine, stop reading this post. Okay, now that everyone is still here, we're pumped to tell you about Wine Riot, happening this weekend in Chicago. Wine Riot is the biggest, raddest wine tasting in the city, the event introduces guests to delicious wines from around the world, and your $60 ticket price lets you sample as many as you like. We love the wine buffet aspect of this event obviously, but it's more than that. You'll get the chance to interact with the makers of the amazing wines you'll sample, and in the process you'll learn a little something about vino. This is the ultimate girls' night activity, in case you're on the hunt for one (aren't we always?), and you can get tickets for you and your ladies online. Better yet, tweet this story and make sure to tag @refinery29. Tell us why you want to learn more about wine and you just might win the pair of tickets we're giving away. Cheers!
Union Station, 201 South Canal Street (just South of Adams Street); 312-322-4269.
