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. 

Of course we had to try the food as well, and we ordered the fruit plate and half dozen oysters, both were delish! 

In the end, we had sipped our way through bubbly from Italy to Spain and enjoyed the trip!
