The Shack: Wednesday Night Sparkler
On Wednesday evenings The Shack hosts a weekly “sparkler” event where they host a DJ and serve a sampling of sparkling wine. Between the two of us (Jenna and Christine) we have a serious weakness for bubbles, so we decided to make it a date! The Shack hosts this event every Wednesday, and each week it’s slightly different. Here’s the deal that hooked us:
4 Tastes of Sparkling Wines for $5
• Il Prosecco from Italy
• LIndauer Brut from New Zealand
• Guinot Cremant from France
• Segura Viudas from Spain
Several members of SacFoodies have been long-time Shack patrons, specifically on the Thursday themed dinner nights, so we were excited to give this place a try. The Shack is just that, nothing pretentious, but rather a simple neighborhood joint with a large patio. The atmosphere is comfortable and the beer list impressive, so impressive that we almost got sidetracked and had to remind ourselves why were there!
DJ Mike and Code E spun tunes while we received our first sample of bubbles. The bartender was very friendly and attentive – watching when we were ready for the next sample and explaining the label and origin of each pour.
