Puget Sound Events and Tastings

One of the things I love about the Seattle and Tacoma area are all of the events and adventures of every kind on a regular basis.  How would you like to learn more about wine, taste a few brews, invest some time in acquiring more knowledge about bourbon, or perhaps treat your significant other to a special evening?

I will add the link to each site so you can pop in and browse additional information.  If you have additional questions, please comment or email and I will answer as soon as possible.  Enjoy!
