John Connolly- Marlow & Sons, Diner, Achilles Heel

 The BRUT NATURE as I like to call him is an eclectic esoteric lover. John likes to keep it au Natural, so we are giving him a break from the heartaches of funk and having him throw together a list of fizz that’s as Natural as Champagne can get. Expect some Roxy Music and shoulder shakes. Dude knows how to get down.

The infamous Best New Somm from Food & Wine. He’s been slinging American Wines for so long now at Agern, we decided he needed a night of French excess. Dressed to the nines, this dude is fine, and apparently he’s pretty good at picking wine. So come support Chad, he's totally rad and the Champagnes- won't be half bad.

The Champagne Cannon


Where: Riddling Widow
Price: $85.00 (+) 8.875 tax

BUY TICKETS

In the theatrical cannon of Champagne there are plenty of cult classics that position fizz with favor. 
It would be predictable to include James Bond, but don't worry there is an entire evening dedicated to that cheeky bastard coming up soon.
Of course there is Hitchcock's Champagne, my girl Natalie Portman in The Professional and let us not forget not one but two smoke shows: Leo and Rob Redford in the Great Gatsby.

Instead I think it would be shameful to pass over films worthy of the Criterion Collection of Champagne:
Waynes World
Breakfast @ Tiffany's
Rushmore
and
Four Rooms

So join me for a night of classic flicks, epic soundtracks, pretty decent Champagne and an evening of breakfast for dinner because...
"I saved Latin, what did you ever do?"

Playlist: 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's, plus the soundtracks of Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino.
Attire: Classy

Dirty Champagne Dancing

How many times have you attempted that iconic lift after too many glasses of bubbly? 

Have you ever carried a watermelon?

It's 1963 and  Francis "Baby" Houseman is is just one listless summer away from joining the Peace Corps. Picture the Catskills and Patrick Swayze's Pants are so tight it hurts.  

Join The Champagne Parlor as we blast the best soundtrack of all time paired with country club classics and a discussion on the Champagne Industry and what was happening in 1960's American Wine Culture. 

There may be a conga line and a secret dance party where everyone is filthy hot and sweaty, but one thing is for sure, nobody is putting Baby in the corner.

Baller Bubbles

$85.00 (+) 8.875% Tax

In the 1980's The Hip Hop Revolution was popping and one man, Branson B. dubbed by Forbes "The Unofficial Sommelier of Hip Hop" was discovering the best bubbly he could get his hands on in the back cellars of Harlem's liquor stores and introducing them to the likes of Notorious B.I.G and  Sean Combs ( Aka Puff Daddy, Aka P.Diddy, Aka Diddy). The relationship between Champagne and the Hip Hop community exploded and over the last 30 years we have come to learn that Crystal and Dom. P were emblematic pinnacles of success.

SO LETS BALL OUT! Baller Bubbles will explore the history of Champagnes and Hip Hop coupled with Grower Champagnes made in similar style or vintage. So from the lyrical stylings of Jay Z.: “Let’s take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh-huh / And sip the Cris and get pissy-pissy, uh huh.”
