Re: NYC - 3/16 or 3/30 - Bring a Special Bottle

We have historically not done a theme but happy to do one if there is interest (the "special bottle" theme started because we had a burg theme and then people asked to make exceptions). Sounds like the 30th would work best so have updated the thread title to reflect that date.

No, was intentional: https://www.centralwinemerchants.com/ne ... rrent.html

Was able to pick one up (said 60+ when I ordered). And WSPro low is $250 so not that much lower.
